But in the bottom half, Jeter opened the inning by lining a single that glanced off Johnson's glove behind second base. Manager Joe Girardi was concerned Jeter would overdo it on the bases, but the 13-time All-Star only needed another easy jog to score his second run.

Soriano sent him into a trot, eking a homer over the right-field wall just out of the reach of a leaping Myers.

"If I had one more step, I feel like I could catch that ball," Myers said.

Said Moore: "Had it been a different ballpark, that ball's definitely not gone. So I guess you can say that, but we're in this ballpark so we're playing by those rules."

Myers put another ball of his own out of everyone's reach in the fifth, an opposite-field shot to right for the first multihomer game of his career.

Plagued by home runs throughout his career, Hughes has allowed 20 this season. Often mentioned in trade rumors, Hughes yielded five runs and nine hits in four-plus innings and left to a vociferous Bronx cheer.

He was lifted after walking Matt Joyce in the fifth, and the New York bullpen shut down the Rays the rest of the way. Preston Claiborne, Boone Logan, David Robertson and Rivera combined for five innings of one-hit ball.

Moore's six-start winning streak ended when he was lifted after five innings with the score tied at 5. The left-hander allowed five runs and eight hits.

NOTES: Myers has a nine-game hitting streak. ... Rays INF Ben Zobrist was given the day off.
