PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (AP) — Ben Zobrist, Desmond Jennings and Matt Joyce homered to help the Tampa Bay Rays beat the New York Yankees 5-4 on Wednesday.

Cesar Ramos allowed two runs in 2 1-3 innings as he entered the competition for the fifth spot in the Rays' pitching rotation. Newly acquired closer Grant Balfour gave up a pair of fourth-inning runs in his second spring appearance.

New York's travel roster included few notable names after playing the previous night in Tampa, with Ichiro Suzuki getting a start in center field and Eduardo Nunez getting a look at second base as manager Joe Girardi continues to explores the infielder's versatility.

Adam Warren, a candidate to be the Yankees' fifth starter, allowed one run and four hits in 2 1-3 innings.
