Yankees manager Joe Girardi left Kuroda in the game, and he got the next two batters to ground out. Hiroki Kuroda retired 17 straight batters to highlight a dominant outing and Brett Gardner drove in two runs as the Yankees completed their road trip with a 4-2 victory over the Rays on Sunday at Tropicana Field. Joyce broke that up with a seventh-inning double and scored on Longoria's single, but Kuroda recovered to get the next two outs and Shawn Kelley struck out pinch-hitter Brandon Guyer swinging on a high fastball to strand the go-ahead run on base. ST. The Yankees won their second straight game by beating the Tampa Bay Rays, 4-2, on Sunday behind the strong pitching of Hiroki Kuroda and relievers Shawn Kelley, Dellin Betances and David Robertson. Shut out here on Friday, the Yankees had lost five in a row before getting a dramatic win Saturday and a solid all-around effort Sunday, which will send them back home hopeful that they can get back into the thick of the American League wild-card race.
