ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Don’t look now, but that slow start by the Yankees is nearly a thing of the past.

The Yankees won their fourth straight game with a 1-0 victory over the Rays at Tropicana Field on Wednesday, and have will aim to finish off a rare sweep Thursday.

Gerrit Cole was masterful, earning his first career regular season win over the Rays.

The Yankees’ ace struck out 12 in eight shutout innings, making the lone Yankees’ run hold up, while Aroldis Chapman earned the save with a scoreless ninth.

Aaron Hicks drove in the run in the top of the seventh with a sacrifice fly.
