by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Rays pitcher Chris Archer struck out eight batters during Tuesday night's 4-2 win over the Yankees. 

Archer allowed seven hits, walked one batter and gave up two earned runs. He was credited with a no-decision in the game. Kevin Jepsen was credited with the win after relieving Archer in the eighth inning. 

It was a good outing for Archer, who had given up a total of nine earned runs in his past two starts. 

Archer now has a 2.59 ERA. 

His next projected start is on Sunday against the Twins.

Rays' Kevin Jepsen takes loss in relief
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Rays reliever Kevin Jepsen dropped to 0-2 on the season, by giving up a run in 2/3 of an inning on Sunday. 

Jepsen started the eighth by walking two batters and giving up an RBI single, snapping a 1-1 tie. He walked another batter before the inning was done and saw his ERA increase to 2.84. 

"The ball kept wanting to go off the corner," said Jepsen. "You walk that many guys in the game, especially in the middle of that lineup, I'm lucky to get out of there with one run against them."

Cash speaks glowingly of Rays reliever Jepsen despite slip-up
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

One bad moment for Rays reliever Kevin Jepsen wasn't about to weaken the confidence Kevin Cash has in him.

Jepsen has been pitching well, but he allowed a game-winning single Friday to torrid Yankees designated hitter Alex Rodriguez. That made Rodriguez 1-for-11 lifetime aganst Jepsen.

"We had a lot of confidence in him before (he came to Tampa Bay in a trade for Matt Joyce last December)," Cash told the Tampa Tribune. "But he's added to it now. ... The season he had last year and just watching him over the years, it seemed like for a while he was the guy that had the filthy stuff but didn't always put it together. But then last year everything clicked for him, and I thought he very much backed it up, first in spring training and (through) every outing he's had (since)."

Jepsen owns a 1.50 ERA in six appearances this season.

Rays' Cash changes course, plans to take closer-by-committee approach
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

A day after indicating Brad Boxberger would be the team's closer while Jake McGee is sidelined with an elbow injury, Rays manager Kevin Cash said Monday he is not going to name a closer, per the Tampa Bay Times. Cash added they will use several relievers in save situations.

"There's going to be guys that we'll lean on to pitch in those leveraged situations," Cash said, per MLB.com. "But it just doesn't make sense to come out and name a closer when the game could be on the line in the seventh or eighth inning."

Cash added they will revisit the closer situation once McGee comes off the disabled list. McGee is expected to miss the first month of the season.

Along with Boxberger, Grant Balfour, Kevin Jepsen and Ernesto Frieri could all be used in save situations.

"We're comfortable with all of our bullpen options," Cash said. "I don't see us leaning toward anybody just waiting to pitch the ninth inning."
