ST. Sam Shields Rams Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Rays role in the final month of the season has been the Official Spoiler of American League Hopefuls, and that continues Tuesday as the Yankees come to Tropicana Field for a three-game series.The Yankees are still in postseason contention, four games back in the wild-card chase with 13 games to play, this despite a horrendous four-game sweep at Boston over the weekend. In all, theyve lost seven of eight games, a slump that started against the Rays last week, when they were just one game out of the wild card.We could have won all four of the games here, manager Joe Girardi said of the sweep at Boston. But were still playing the teams in front of us, some of them. We have to start over Tuesday.The Rays (64-85) have long been out of any contention and firmly in last in the AL East, but theyve managed to wreak havoc on the division -- they went 5-6 on their recent road trip, the longest of the season, but in doing so, took two of three from Toronto and split a four-game series with Baltimore, putting the brakes on both teams postseason chases.Were playing well, manager Kevin Cash said after Sundays loss. Were giving teams a good game all the way to the end. Weve won some of them and weve lost a couple tough ones.For the Yankees to make up four games in the final two weeks of the regular season in a deep logjam of potential wild cards, theyll need sweeps against teams like the Rays.And while Tuesdays starters might look similar in their stats -- Rays LHP Drew Smyly is 7-11 with a 4.98 ERA and Yankees RHP Michael Pineda is 6-11 with a 4.94 -- their success against their current opponent is a much different matter.Pineda is 0-3 against the Rays this season with a 9.31 ERA, his highest for any opponent in 2016. Hes given up 31 hits in 19 1/3 innings, including eight home runs, though four of those came in an 8-1 loss on April 24. The Rays are hitting .356 against him this season, and he hasnt even made it through five innings in his last three starts, including a two-run effort against the Rays.Smyly, on the other hand, is 2-0 with a 2.08 ERA against the Yankees this season -- that same April 24 game that was a low mark for Pineda saw Smyly hold the Yankees to one run in seven innings. Hes given up two runs in 13 innings this season against New York, and hes improved overall since the All-Star break, though his season has been marked too often by no-decisions and losses.The Rays wrap up their home schedule in the next week with three against the Yankees and three against the Red Sox, their last chance to make an impact on a division race they arent directly involved in. Brandon Allen Jersey . -- Lou Brocks shoulder-to-shoulder collision with Bill Freehan during the 1968 World Series and Pete Roses bruising hit on Ray Fosse in the 1970 All-Star game could become relics of baseball history, like the dead-ball era.

The U.S. had claimed gold on every day of the 2012 and 2016 Olympics.The drought proved brief. Christian Taylor won gold in the triple jump to start the day, and teammate Will Claye came in second -- a familiar result for the Americans. Taylor and Claye finished 1-2 in triple jump in London as well.It ended up being a pretty eventful day for Claye. Moments after earning his silver, he bounded into the stands, dropped to a knee and proposed to his longtime girlfriend , hurdler Queen Harrison. She said yes.One day after a Brazilian pulled off an upset to win the mens pole vault Monday night, the womens soccer team lost to Sweden in a shootout.

The charismatic forward has been one of the worlds top players for more than a decade, but she has never won a major international tourrnament with her national team.

We have the match for the bronze medal now and we will fight until the end to get that medal.Rio Olympic officials in Brazil have one less trouble to worry about following robberies, stray gunfire and a falling camera outside the basketball arena. The Olympic diving pool, its water turned a murky green a week ago, reverted to its usual blue Tuesday.One off-the-field issue remains unresolved, however.
