Encarnacion went 0-for-4 in his debut, but the Yankees defeated the Tampa Bay Rays 3-0.

NY has homered in 20 straight games, the second-longest streak in team history.

"I'm pretty surprised at such a good result", Tanaka said.

After Tanaka pitched New York's first two-hitter since Hiroki Kuroda on August 14, 2012, J.A. Happ (6-3, 4.66) attempts to win his sixth straight decision when he starts on regular four days' rest. That was all a dominant Tanaka (5-5) needed while throwing 76 of 111 pitches for strikes in New York's first complete game since his gem at Tampa Bay last July. With the acquisition of Encarnacion, Stanton will become New York's starting left fielder in most games.

Acquired from Seattle on Saturday, Encarnación's first hit in pinstripes came in grand fashion, clubbing his AL-leading 22nd homer off Andrew Kittredge in the eighth. "I didn't swing at the best pitches tonight".

At Rogers Centre, Los Angeles Angels designated hitter Shohei Ohtani capped a seven-run rally in the second with a three-run blast for his ninth home run of the season.

Gary Sanchez had two RBIs and J.A. Happ (7-3) pitched two-run ball over five innings.

Lucie, 20, was inconsolable as she said she wasn't sure why her fellow Islanders voted her and Joe as the least compatible. The 22-year-old blamed his age and "inexperience" with relationships, as well as the round-the-clock filming of the show.

The Yankees then broke through against Chaz Roe (0-3) behind RBI singles from DJ LeMahieu, Voit and Sanchez to take a 4-2 lead. "Because whatever he's doing and whatever we're doing is not working", Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash said. "We have a lot of great players, but now it's got to go play out". He struck out four and walked two.

The New York Yankees have officially activated slugger Giancarlo Stanton from the injured list, according to a team announcement.

The two-way Japanese player notched 22 home runs in his major league rookie season a year ago while being slowed by injuries to his pitching arm.

In a game that was delayed more than an hour before first pitch, the Yankees improved to 6-2 in the season series and moved 2 1/2 games in front of the Rays in the AL East.

The Rays lost back-to-back road games for just the second time this season.

Tampa Bay tied it with three consecutive one-out singles in the second but stranded two in scoring position when Stanton reached into the crowd to snag Joey Wendle's foul fly.
