Bronx, NY (Sports Network) - Chris Archer tossed a two-hit shutout and Kelly Johnson's sixth-inning RBI single was the difference, as Tampa Bay clipped the Yankees, 1-0, in the middle test of a three-game set.

Archer (6-3) needed just 97 pitches to craft his second career complete game, striking out six without a walk. His lone blemishes were singles to Lyle Overbay and double from Brett Gardner.

James Loney collected two hits and Ben Zobrist scored for the Rays, who have won three in a row and increased their lead in the AL East

Ivan Nova (4-4) was the hard-luck loser, scattering six hits and one run, fanning eight with three walks over seven full frames for the Yankees, who have dropped seven of their last 10.
