Ray (13-7) allowed five earned runs on four hits and three walks while striking out four across 5.1 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Yankees.

Ray allowed only a solo home run through five innings, but he surrendered three long balls in his final frame to sink his outing. Though he has been excellent for much of the season, Ray has stumbled a bit down the stretch by allowing 13 earned runs across 27.1 frames spanning his last five starts. Even so, Ray ends the regular season with a 2.84 ERA and a 248:53 K:BB across 193.1 innings and should be in consideration for the American League Cy Young.
