ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., April 22 (UPI) -- Matt Moore handcuffed the Yankees over eight innings and Ryan Roberts homered twice Monday, propelling the Tampa Bay Rays over New York 5-1.

Moore (4-0) turned in his fourth straight dominating start to begin the season, allowing one run on just two hits. The left-hander walked three and struck out nine while lowering his ERA to 1.04.

Roberts went 3-for-4 with solo shots in the first and third innings while Yunel Escobar added a two-run blast for the Rays, who picked up their fourth straight victory in taking the opener of a three-game series.

Sean Rodriguez contributed an RBI triple during Tampa Bay's four-run first.

Yankees starter CC Sabathia (3-2) was touched for five runs on seven hits in a seven-inning effort.

Robinson Cano collected both New York hits in the loss, including a bases-empty homer.
