ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Rays found out the hard way that Gary Sanchez is no ordinary rookie.Sanchez hit his 17th homer in 42 games this season, a three-run shot off Brad Boxberger in a four-run seventh inning that sent the New York Yankees past the Rays 5-3 on Tuesday night.He did a good job on a first-pitch slider from me, Boxberger said. Its probably not on the scouting report too much, so to be able to do what he did is pretty impressive.Sanchez gave the banged-up Yankees a 5-2 lead with his drive to left-center. It was the young catchers sixth home run in 11 games following a 10-game drought.The decisive hit came after Tampa Bay opted not to walk Sanchez with first base open and two outs.Had Boxy fallen behind, maybe youd think about it, but this is a guy whos gotten a lot of big outs for us in the past and trust him to get outs, Rays manager Kevin Cash said.Boxberger (4-3) has struggled recently, losing in three of his last four appearances. He has allowed 10 earned runs over 8 2/3 innings in his last 10 games.Sanchez tied Wally Berger of the 1930 Boston Braves for the most homers by a big league player through 44 career games, according to Baseball-Reference data available through 1913.Drew Smyly allowed one run over six innings for the Rays. The left-hander has not lost in 11 consecutive starts, including six no-decisions.I was being efficient, Smyly said. I felt I had control of the game for the most part.Brad Miller put the Rays up 2-0 with a two-run triple in the third.Mark Teixeira hit a solo shot in the fourth for New York, which was swept in a four-game series at Boston last weekend and had lost seven of eight overall.It was Teixeiras 407th homer, which tied Duke Snider for 54th place on baseballs career list. The switch-hitting first baseman has hit 204 for the Yankees, moving him past Roger Maris and into a tie with Robinson Cano for 14th in franchise history.Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury (bruised right knee), third baseman Chase Headley (back spasms) and second baseman Starlin Castro (strained right hamstring) were all out of the lineup for the second straight game.Luis Severino (3-8) pitched 1 1/3 innings of scoreless relief to earn the win. Dellin Betances got three outs for his 12th save, and the Yankees snapped a five-game skid.New York starter Michael Pineda gave up two runs and struck out 11 in 5 1/3 innings.TRAINERS ROOMYankees: Ellsbury didnt rule out starting Wednesday. ... Headley could be back late this week.Rays: OF Steven Souza Jr. (left hip) and 1B Logan Morrison (left wrist) will have surgery Wednesday. ... Utility man Nick Franklin (left hamstring) might not play again this season.UP NEXTYankees: RHP Masahiro Tanaka (13-4), who is 6-0 in his last eight starts, takes the ball Wednesday night.

The New York State Athletic Commission has suspended UFC welterweight Kelvin Gastelum for failing to appear at the weigh-in for his scheduled bout against Donald Cerrone at UFC 205.NYSAC spokeswoman Mercedes Padilla confirmed Gastelums suspension in an email to ESPN.com on Monday.Gastelums manager, Ali Abdelaziz, told ESPN.com they intend to appeal the suspension. Gastelum wants to fight Tim Kennedy at UFC 206 on Dec. 10 in Toronto. Kennedy was supposed to fight Rashad Evans, but Evans failed to receive medical clearance for the bout.On Nov. 11, Gastelum (12-2) announced via social media he wouldnt make weight for his 170-pound contest against Cerrone on Nov. 12 and was pulling out of the fight. Cerrone (31-7) made weight and received his show money from the UFC.Gastelum, 25, has had issues making weight in tthe past.ddddddddddddHe has missed the limit twice in his professional career, and UFC president Dana White has stated hell never book Gastelum to a welterweight bout again.Its unusual, however, for an athletic commission to suspend an athlete for failing to make weight. There are numerous examples of athletes who shut down a weight cut and canceled a fight but did not receive a suspension from the commission.UFC 205 at Madison Square Garden was the first UFC event under the oversight of the NYSAC. Professional mixed martial arts was banned in the state of New York from 1997 to 2016. The ban was lifted earlier this year.The UFC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
