TAMPA, Fla. (AP) _ David Phelps boosted his bid to be the New York Yankees’ fifth starter, pitching five scoreless innings Sunday during a 3-3 tie with the Tampa Bay Rays in 10 innings.

Phelps, who gave up three hits and struck out one, is competing with Michael Pineda, Adam Warren and Vidal Nuno for the final rotation spot behind CC Sabathia, Hiroki Kuroda, Masahiro Tanaka and Ivan Nova. The right-hander has been touched for two runs over 9 2-3 innings in three spring training starts.

Chris Archer allowed two hits and had two strikeouts in 3 1-3 shutout innings for the Rays. Archer struck out his first two batters, Jacoby Ellsbury and Derek Jeter.

Alfonso Soriano had an infield single and Ellsbury doubled off the Tampa Bay right-hander, who went 9-7 with a 3.22 ERA over 23 starts during his rookie season last year.
