ST .PETERSBURG Yonder Alonso Jersey , Fla. (AP) — Davis led off the 10th inning with his major league-leading 42nd homer, and the Athletics beat the Tampa Bay Rays 2-1 on Friday night.“I’ve always said he’s one swing away from winning a game for you,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said. “He’s developed a knack for hitting good pitching and hitting dramatic homers late in games.”Oakland improved its majors-best record in one-run games to 29-12 and extended its lead for the second AL wild card to nine games over the surprising Rays. Tampa Bay has 16 games left.The A’s remained 1½ games behind the New York Yankees for the first wild card. The Yankees beat Toronto 11-0.“We’re competing for a spot. Every game is precious,” Davis said.Davis’ drive to center off Jaime Schultz (2-1) was his 40th this season as a designated hitter. He joins David Ortiz has the only DHs to have 40 or more homers.Davis set an Oakland record with his 16th homer in the seventh inning or later.The A’s had just three hits against nine Tampa Bay pitchers.“Today stunk just in the fact that we had an opportunity and we didn’t capitalize,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said. “It’s tough to pull negatives from what this group has done and how they performed tonight.”Blake Treinen (7-2) went two scoreless innings for the win.Matt Chapman doubled for the first A’s hit with one out in the fourth and scored on Matt Olson’s single.Tampa Bay tied it later in the fourth when Tommy Pham extended his hitting streak to 17 games with a pop-fly double into shallow center field and crossed the plate on Joey Wendle’s base hit.“They didn’t give us much,” Rays third baseman Matt Duffy said. “A close, hard-fought game.”Oakland reliever Shawn Kelley worked out of a second-and-third, no-out jam in the sixth.“That was a Houdini inning,” Melvin said.Athletics starter Edwin Jackson allowed one run and four hits in five innings.Reliever Diego Castillo opened the game for the Rays and struck out four over two perfect innings.Sergio Romo retired all three batters in the ninth in his second appearance for the Rays since Aug. 25. He recorded a two-out save on Sept. 4 at Toronto.The Athletics are 12-5 in extra innings.“It’s fun baseball that we’re playing right now and every day it’s a different person coming through in clutch situations,” Jackson said.MAKING A CASE FOR CYThe Rays have put out a handbill supporting Blake Snell’s AL Cy Young Award bid titled “Attack of the Cy Zilla!” It includes a quote from Boston manager Alex Cora saying Snell has “been great against everybody.” Red Sox lefty Chris Sale is also a contender. Snell, whose nickname is Snellzilla, leads the majors with 19 wins.TOUGH LOSSESTampa Bay is 25-29 in one-run games. … It was the Rays’ 14th loss when allowing two runs or fewer, which is most in the majors.NUMBERSChapman has 23 doubles and 38 extra-base hits since the All-Star break. … Oakland C Jonathan Lucrory threw out two runners on stolen base attempts. … Athletics RF Stephen Piscotty had his 14-game hitting streak end after going 0 for 4.TRAINER’S ROOMAthletics: RHP Trevor Cahill (upper back) will miss his next scheduled start. “He had a trigger-point injection http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-b.j.-upton-jersey ,” Melvin said. “Hopefully that alleviates it.”Rays: Duffy (lower back) started after being out of the lineup the previous three games. “I don’t think the pain is completely out of there but he wants to be in there,” Cash said.UP NEXTTampa Bay and Oakland, two of the primary teams using relievers as openers to start games, will employ the strategy against each other for the first time Saturday night. “It’s just trying to take advantage of what you have,” Melvin said. Tampa Bay will go with RHP Ryne Stanek (2-3), while Oakland counters with RHP Liam Hendriks (0-1). BOSTON (AP) — The Bronx Bombers lived up to their nickname by hitting another big number. A couple of them, in fact.Gleyber Torres and Giancarlo Stanton connected as the playoff-bound Yankees set the major league record for most home runs in a season, beating the Boston Red Sox 8-5 Saturday for their 100th win this year.“I’m happy for them. They work really hard at their craft, and it’s a result of a lot of people having success,” manager Aaron Boone said.The Yankees entered Saturday tied with the 1997 Seattle Mariners — a lineup that included Ken Griffey Jr., Alex Rodriguez, Jay Buhner and Edgar Martinez — with 264 homers after hitting four Friday night in an 11-6 win over Boston.Torres hit a two-run drive in the fourth inning that gave the Yankees the outright record, and Stanton added to it with his 38th of the season in the seventh.“A lot of cool things happened for our team today Bradley Zimmer Jersey , so it was a good day,” said Stanton, who also had an RBI single in the first and reached 100 RBIs in his first season with New York.The Yankees have one more chance to add to the record total Sunday as they try to complete a three-game series sweep against the AL East champion Red Sox, who they could meet again next week in the playoffs.New York became the first team to get at least 20 home runs from all nine spots in the batting order.“I didn’t even know that until before the game, my meeting with the broadcast team,” Boone said. “Actually, when Gleyber hit it, I was sharing all that information with all the guys on the bench because I felt like I had this new-found knowledge.”The Yankees, who will host Oakland in the AL wild-card game on Wednesday, improved to 100-61 — that still left them far behind the Red Sox, who have set a franchise record for victories in going 107-54.This is the 10th time in big league history that a team has won at least 100 games and not finished first. Since the start of division play in 1969, the only clubs that didn’t wind up on top despite triple-digits wins were Oakland in 2001 — which won 102 games to Seattle’s 116 — San Francisco in 1993 and Baltimore in 1980.The Yankees joined Boston and Houston to win 100 or more this season, making the AL the first league to have a trio of 100-win teams in the same year.New York reached 100 wins for the 20th time in franchise history and first since going 103-59 in 2009 Brandon Guyer Jersey , when the Yankees went on to win their most recent World Series title.Brock Holt hit a two-run homer in the ninth for the Red Sox, who could be hosting the Yankees in the AL Division Series starting week. The wild-card winner opens its best-of-five matchup Friday at Fenway Park.Manager Alex Cora, who has been shuffling the lineup and resting players for the playoffs, wasn’t overly concerned after Saturday’s loss.“We’re going to be 0-0 next week. We’re still going to have four days off,” Cora said. “It’s not that we’re going through the motions. We’re taking care of our players and making sure they get what they need. We’ll be ready for October.”Lance Lynn (10-10) got the win with three innings of relief, holding Boston to one run on two hits. Aroldis Chapman shut down Boston’s ninth-inning rally for his 32nd save.Eduardo Rodriguez (12-5) pitched the third and fourth for Boston and took the loss, allowing three runs on four hits.After Greg Bird’s RBI double put New York up 2-1 in the fourth, Torres hit a 1-1 pitch from Rodriguez out to right, sailing over the head of Blake Swihart at the bullpen wall and giving the Yankees the record-breaking 265th homer.Andujar drove in two runs on a double during New York’s three-run fifth and Stanton led off the seventh with a homer off Steven Wright.BACK ATCHA!Stanton pushed the homer record to 266 with a drive to left field, then got a surprise. A strong-armed fan sitting in the seats above the Green Monster threw the souvenir back, and the ball bounced into Stanton as he rounded second base.Boston fans cheered when the fan let loose and Stanton smiled when the throw reached him on a bounce. Stanton gave a quick salute to the man.“I wouldn’t have thought it got to me that fast with a fan throwing it. I’ve never seen it happen before,” Stanton said.ROOKIE RECORDThe home run record wasn’t the only one to fall. Miguel Andujar hit two doubles and increased his total to 46, the most by a Yankees rookie since Joe DiMaggio hit 44 in 1936.TRAINER’S ROOMYankees: RF Aaron Judge http://www.indiansfanproshop.com/authentic-b.j.-upton-jersey , whose eighth-inning homer Friday night tied the Yankees with the Mariners’ record, was out of the lineup after hitting the right-field wall while making a catch. Boone said the Yankees were being cautious with Judge, who returned from the disabled list Sept. 14 with a wrist fracture. “I think it’s a good day to get him down, as we’ve been going pretty hard with him, too,” Boone said.Red Sox: RF Mookie Betts was not in the lineup. Cora said Betts was getting a day off and was not injured.UP NEXTYankees: All-Star RHP Luis Severino (19-8, 3.39 ERA) had been listed to start Sunday, but was scratched. He remains an option to pitch in the wild-card game.Red Sox: RHP Rick Porcello (17-7, 4.33 ERA) is expected to throw a couple innings in the regular-season finale as Boston rests its rotation for the ALDS.
