ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Ryan Hanigan homered twice and had six RBIs, and Chris Archer continued his dominance over the Yankees as the Tampa Bay Rays routed New York 16-1 on Saturday night.

Hanigan drove in his final two runs with a single off Yankees infielder Dean Anna, who gave up two runs and three hits in the eighth inning.

Archer (2-1) allowed one run and three hits in 6 2-3 innings. He has won all four career starts against the Yankees, allowing four earned runs in 28 2-3 innings.

Wil Myers, who also homered twice, and Evan Longoria both drove in four runs for the Rays.

Yankees starter Ivan Nova (2-2) gave up a career-high four home runs before leaving in the fifth with right elbow soreness. The right-hander allowed eight runs and eight hits in four-plus innings.

Myers hit his second homer of the game, a three-run shot off Matt Daley during a four-run fifth as the Rays took a 10-1 lead. The 2013 AL Rookie of the Year ended a 10-game RBI drought by driving in three runs in Tampa Bay's 11-5 victory Friday night over the Yankees.

Longoria hit his 164th homer, which broke a tie with Carlos Pena for the most in Rays history.

Myers put the Rays up 1-0 on his first homer since Sept. 16 in the second.

The Rays went ahead 4-0 in the third when Hanigan had a solo homer and Longoria added a two-run shot off Nova, who had his streak of not allowing more than one homer in a start end at 26. It was the first time Nova had given up multiple homers in a game since Aug. 21, 2012 when the Chicago White Sox hit a pair.

Hanigan extended the lead to 6-0 on his a two-run shot during the fourth.

Kelly Johnson hit an RBI double off Archer in the fifth.

Yankees right fielder Carlos Beltran went 0 for 3 as the designated hitter after sitting out Friday because of left shoulder and right wrist soreness. He flipped over the short wall down the right-field line while chasing Desmond Jennings' foul ball Thursday.

NOTES: With a day game Sunday, Yankees SS Derek Jeter was rested. ... Longoria stopped a 49 at-bat homer drought. ... New York closer David Robertson (groin) threw 1 1-3 scoreless innings in an extended spring training game and expects to rejoin the team Tuesday. ... Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (strained right leg muscle) went 2 for 4 in the same game as Robertson and said he is ready to return Sunday. ... Jennings was out of the lineup for the second straight game due to a groin injury. ... Tampa Bay recalled LHP C.J. Riefenhauser from Triple-A Durham. ... Yankees LHP Vidal Nuno (0-0) and Rays LHP Cesar Ramos (0-1) are Sunday's scheduled starters.
