ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Rougned Odor snapped a 10th-inning tie with his first hit as a Yankee, Gio Urshela homered and drove in three runs, and New York rallied Sunday to avoid a weekend sweep with an 8-4 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays.

Urshela hit a two-run homer in the third inning.

His fourth hit of the day, a two-out single in the 10th off Collin McHugh, helped the Yankees put away the AL champions, who were on the verge of completing a three-game sweep before giving up a tying run in the eighth.
