Cobb leads Rays to AL wild-card win

Alex Cobb fired 6 2/3 innings in his postseason debut to lift the Tampa Bay Rays to a 4-0 win over Cleveland in Wednesday's American League wild-card game.

Cobb gave up just eight hits with a walk and five strikeouts.

Delmon Young homered to lead off the third inning, while Desmond Jennings doubled home James Loney and Evan Longoria in the fourth. In the ninth, Yunel Escobar singled in Ben Zobrist.

The Rays will open a best-of-5 AL division series Friday at Boston.
