The Rays lost 3-1 to the Yankees on a rainy Tuesday afternoon in Port Charlotte, their third straight loss.

RHP Alex Cobb worked five innings in dazzling form, striking out six while allowing only two hits and not walking any.

Cobb said he had a terrible warmup session so he was glad to be able to get the good results, manager Joe Maddon said he thought Cobb looked like he was in regular season form.

Kelly Johnson made his first career appearance at first base and said - given the limited action - it went well, though he definitely has more to learn.
