    Michael Pineda allowed six runs and nine hits in less than four innings.

    Evan Longoria homered and drove in four runs, and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the New York Yankees 9-5 Saturday to send Michael Pineda to his sixth loss in his last seven decisions.

    Longoria had a sacrifice fly during a three-run first, boosted the lead to 5-0 with a two-run homer in the second and chased Pineda with an RBI single in the fourth that made it 6-1.

    Pineda (2-6) allowed six runs and nine hits in 3 2/3 innings. His 6.92 ERA is the highest among 104 qualifying pitchers in the major leagues.

    Carlos Beltran hit a solo homer off Moore in the fourth for his 2,500th hit. He is the 99th major leaguer, 10th switch-hitter and fourth Puerto Rico-born player to reach the mark.
