Joyce also drove in three with a solo home run in the third for and a two-run single in the seventh as the Rays (2-0) widened their lead to 8-2.

The Yankees (0-2) rallied in the ninth when Raul Ibanez hit a sacrifice fly to score Curtis Granderson, and Nick Swisher had a three-run homer to narrow the gap to two runs.

David Price (1-0) gave up two runs on five hits, with four walks and five strikeouts in 6 1/3 innings for the Rays. Fernando Rodney pitched a third of an inning for his first save of the season.
