ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) Starlin Castro's two-run homer off Jake Odorizzi in the seventh inning was the Yankees' only hit of the game, and it was enough to give New York a 2-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday.

Brett Gardner took a 3-2 pitch with one out in the seventh to draw the Yankees' first walk and become their second baserunner. Castro then sent a 91 mph pitch over the center-field fence.

Nathan Eovaldi (6-2) gave up one run and six hits in six innings to win his career-best fifth consecutive start.
