Extra bases

• With Saturday night's 1-0 win over the A's, the Rays became just the fourth American League team in the last 25 years to throw four shutouts in their first 17 games of the season. That puts them in company with the 1990 Brewers (five), 1995 Red Sox (four) and this year's Rangers (four).

Since the beginning of 2012, the Rays lead the AL with 19 shutouts, tying them with the Braves for the Major League lead.

• Monday night's Rays-Yankees game at Tropicana Field can be seen on Sun Sports and ESPN. First pitch is scheduled for 7:08 p.m.
