Wilmer Font became the latest pitcher to slow down the New York Yankees.

Font worked into the sixth inning to get his first major league win John Miller Jersey , Willy Adames homered and the Tampa Bay Rays blanked the Yankees 4-0 Saturday.

Font (1-3) allowed three hits, one walk and struck out four over 5 2/3 innings. Four relievers completed a four-hitter.

”Just an awesome performance by him and the rest of the guys,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said.

The Rays have won the first two of a three-game series against the Yankees, who have the best record in the majors.

New York has scored just once in its last 25 innings.

”It’s amazing,” Font said. ”It’s the second win in a row for us. Perfect.”

Adames had an RBI single during a two-run second and added a solo homer in the seventh off Sonny Gray (5-5).

New York (50-24), coming off a three-game sweep over Seattle, is the only team in the big leagues that hasn’t dropped more than two straight games this year. This is the latest the Yankees have gone into a season without losing three in a row since August 1954.

”You do shrug it off,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. ”We also know you turn the page and really lock in. Come in with urgency and expect to get a `W.”’

Gray gave up four runs and six hits in 6 2/3 innings.

After Jake Bauers had a first-inning RBI double Lorenzo Alexander Jersey , Tampa Bay took a 3-0 lead in the second when Daniel Robertson hit a run-scoring double and scored on Adames’ single.

”Definitely uplifting,” Rays reliever Sergio Romo said. ”It’s something we can feed off of, most definitely.”

The Yankees had one hit in eight at-bats with runners in scoring position, including three unsuccessful tries in both the second and third innings.

New York was limited to five hits and went 1 for 9 with runners in scoring position in a 2-1 loss Friday night.

”It’s been two games,” Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius said. ”So, I don’t think it’s really, like, a big deal.”

TANAKA TIME

Yankees RHP Masahiro Tanaka Kyle Williams Jersey , on the 10-day disabled since June 9 with strained left and right hamstrings, will have his first bullpen session Sunday and may start a simulated game Friday. ”If you look back two weeks ago there was no way I would be able to move the way that I did today,” Tanaka said through a translator. ”It’s definitely better.”

TRAINER’S ROOM

Rays: RHP Chris Archer (left abdominal strain) felt great one day after a 20-pitch bullpen session and will take the mound again Monday. ”Highly encouraged,” said Archer, who could return around the All-Star break. … RHP Jake Faria (left oblique strain) threw 25 fastballs in his first mound session.

NUMBERS

Rays 1B C.J. Cron doubled in four at-bats and is 5 for his last 57. The other four hits were homers. . Tampa Bay CF Kevin Kiermaier is 1 for 16 in four games since coming back from right thumb surgery.

HOME COOKING

The Rays have given up one or fewer runs in four straight home games. It ties the team record set in 2008.

UP NEXT

Yankees: RHP Domingo German (2-4), Sunday’s starter, got his first major league win by beating Tampa Bay on June 14. He struck out 10 and allowed three earned runs over six innings.

Rays: LHP Blake Snell (9-4) had his scheduled start Sunday pushed back one day to Monday night against Washington. Cash said Snell could benefit from the extra day off given his recent workload. Tampa Bay will have RHP Matt Andriese (1-3) open a bullpen day Sunday.

Bounced from New York, Ben McAdoo might get a new opportunity with the Browns.

McAdoo Sven Andrighetto Jersey , who was fired as Giants coach in December after going 2-10 and benching star quarterback Eli Manning, is interviewing Tuesday to be the offensive coordinator for Cleveland coach Hue Jackson.

The 40-year-old McAdoo is meeting with general manager John Dorsey and Jackson, said the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the team is not confirming any coaching interviews.

Jackson is still considering whether to bring on a coordinator after handling those duties the past two seasons. But after going 0-16, Jackson said he was open to handing over play-calling duties and McAdoo has done that in the past.

McAdoo was New York’s offensive coordinator for two seasons before taking over as coach when Tom Coughlin left. McAdoo went 11-5 in 2016, but things unraveled for him after he demoted Manning, a two-time Super Bowl champion.

McAdoo has connections with Dorsey as they worked together for seven seasons in Green Bay. McAdoo coached the Packers tight ends and quarterbacks.

Jackson, who has overhauled his offensive staff, previously met with Houston quarterbacks coach Sean Ryan about the coordinator’s position. Also Tyson Barrie Jersey , former Tennessee coach Mike Mularkey, who was fired Monday, could be on the Browns’ radar.

Last week, Jackson hired former Giants wide receivers coach Adam Henry and Ken Zampese as his new quarterbacks coach. Zampese was fired last season as Cincinnati’s offensive coordinator.
