St. Petersburg, FL (Sports Network) – Alex Rodriguez belted two solo homers and the New York Yankees snapped their six-game losing streak with a 6-2 win over Tampa Bay in the finale of a two-game series.

Brett Gardner had three hits, an RBI and two runs scored for the Yankees, who banged out 12 hits to end their season-long skid.

Ivan Nova (4-3) picked up the win, allowing one run on four hits and two walks while striking out four in 5 1/3 innings. He was pulled after loading the bases in the sixth and four New York relievers closed the game out.

Former Yankee Johnny Damon had three hits for the Rays, who fell to 8-4 in their last 12 games. Their lead in the AL East was cut to two games over the Yankees.
