Rays relievers try to author another win over Yankees

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Tampa Bay's continued experimentation with relievers as starters has had mixed results, but it helped the Rays beat the best team in baseball on Friday night, and they'll hope for the same formula as the series continues Saturday at Tropicana Field.

"It's a little backwards, a little different, but it is what it is," Yankees' Brett Gardner said after Friday's 2-1 win for the Rays.

On Saturday, the Rays will start reliever Wilmer Font (0-3, 7.56 ERA), who is already with his third team in 2018, but has found surprising success growing into the unusual role. In six June appearances, he has managed to last longer in each outing -- 2/3 of an inning, then 1 1/3, then 2, then 2 1/3, then 3 1/3, and then 4 2/3 on Sunday against the same Yankees.
