Loney drove in four runs and the Rays overcame a four-run deficit to beat the Yankees 11-5 on Friday night, snapping New York's five-game winning streak.
Pinch-hitter Desmond Jennings had an RBI single before Loney's two-run single off Adam Warren (0-1) in the seventh inning gave Tampa Bay a 6-5 lead. The Rays had been outscored 32-7 during their skid.
"I like to believe this is a definite reboot kind of a game," manager Joe Maddon said.
Yankees reliever Cesar Cabral was ejected by plate umpire Joe West after hitting his third batter, Logan Forsythe, in the eighth after Myers' hit. The left-hander earlier plunked Evan Longoria and Loney.
"I didn't try to hit anybody," said Cabral, designated for assignment after the game. "It happens sometimes."
Maddon and Myers both agreed.
"A couple things just got away from him. ... Not a big deal," Myers said. "I can definitely relate to not being on your game."
Longoria reached base in all five plate appearances. He had three hits, a walk and was hit near the left knee by Cabral's pitch.
Erik Bedard allowed four runs and six hits in 3 2/3 innings for the Rays. With Matt Moore (left elbow), Alex Cobb (strained left oblique) and Jeremy Hellickson (right elbow surgery) all on the disabled list, Bedard became the seventh starting pitcher used by Tampa Bay this season.
New York starter Hiroki Kuroda gave up three runs and seven hits over 5 2/3 innings.
Center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury took an extra-base hit away from Tampa Bay's Ben Zobrist with a leaping catch at the wall in the fourth. Later in the inning, Loney cut the Rays' deficit to 4-2 with a two-run double.
New York manager Joe Girardi won a replay challenge in the second inning. After Sizemore's hit, Ichiro Suzuki was called out at first after laying down a bunt. Following a 47-second delay, umpires ruled Suzuki was safe on the play.
The Yankees plan to purchase the contract of RHP Matt Daley from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Saturday to take Cabral's roster spot. ... New York RF Carlos Beltran didn't play due to left shoulder and right wrist soreness. He flipped over the short wall down the right-field line while chasing Jennings' foul ball Thursday night. ... Masahiro Tanaka, Michael Pineda and CC Sabathia will start in a three-game series at Boston that begins Tuesday. ... Tampa Bay RHP Juan Carlos Oviedo (right elbow surgery) could return next week. ... Jerry Springer threw out the ceremonial first pitch. ... Yankees RHP Ivan Nova (2-1) and Rays RHP Chris Archer (1-1) are Saturday night's scheduled starters. ... Tampa Bay optioned RHP Brad Boxberger to Triple-A Durham. ... Yankees INF Yangervis Solarte was sore postgame after fouling a ball off his shin.
