Zobrist got the Rays on the board with an RBI single in the first as Nova labored. Cano answered with a sacrifice fly caught on the warning track in the bottom half.

Archer, too, settled down after that and worked with a quick tempo. Once Loney got the big hit for the Rays, Maddon could rest easy, turning the game over to his lock-down bullpen.

"When guys have a tough day like that, and they're your guys, there's no replacements there," Maddon said. "These are our guys. This is how we win this year. I believe in them. And they have to know that."

NOTES: Maddon's snack choice in a city held up for mockery in salsa commercials as the origin of subpar product may have been his boldest decision this weekend. That one worked out, too. "As it turns out ... the chips and salsa were outstanding," Maddon said. "I don't know where they're from here in the city, but they're really, really good." ... Loney finished with three hits and an intentional walk after hitting into a double play in the first inning. ... Molina easily stole a base in the top of the eighth inning. He took off for second, and Stewart couldn't corral a high pitch, allowing the sturdy catcher to take the base easily. ... With the Old-Timers lined up on the basepaths after being introduced, Yogi Berra was welcomed last. The 88-year-old Berra was brought out on a golf cart festooned with eight miniature American flags, and received a warm cheer. ... The Rays face Toronto on Monday night at home, where RHP Jeremy Hellickson (5-3, with a 5.50 ERA) will face RHP Esmil Rogers (3-2, 3.14). ... The Yankees are off Monday before hosting Texas for three games starting Tuesday night.
