UPDATE: So much for that. After Stephen Drew popped out to begin the bottom of the eighth inning, Chris Young hit a double to the right-center field gap to break up Cobb’s no-hit bid.
9:09 p.m. ET: The Yankees aren’t at 100 percent tonight and Rays right-hander Alex Cobb is taking advantage. He hasn’t allowed a hit through his first seven innings of work. Meanwhile, Tampa Bay holds a 4-0 lead.
Cobb has allowed three baserunners, including a dropped fly ball from Kevin Kiermaier to begin the bottom of the third inning and two walks in the seventh. He’s currently sitting at 94 pitches.
Matt Garza threw the first and only no-hitter in Rays history on July 26, 2010 against the Tigers. Stay tuned to see if Cobb will be the second.
