The Tampa Bay Rays take the field with the New York Yankees in a AL East MLB tilt on Tuesday.
The Tampa Bay Rays saw their shot at a four game winning streak go by the wayside in a 2-1 defeat at the Blue Jays on Sunday. Tampa Bay starter Tyler Glasnow gave up a run over five innings with Jose Alvarado allowing a 6th inning run to get the loss.

The Rays offense mustered six hits and walked twice with Willy Adames logging a pair of singles and knocking in Joey Wendle in the 4th inning.
Tampa Bay has not named a starter and will probably use several relievers here.
The New York Yankees had won six of seven before falling 8-5 to the visiting Mets Monday. NY Yankees starter Luis Severino was charged with four runs over four frames to get the loss while AJ Cole gave up three solo homers in 1.1 innings.
The Yankees logged seven hits and three bases on balls with Miguel Andujar cracking a two run homer while Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Hicks each drove in a run and scored.
The Yankees turn to left hander JA Happ for Tuesday’s start against visiting Tampa Bay. Happ defeated Texas 7-3 last time out with three runs plated through six innings of work.
Tampa Bay are 7-1 in their last 8 Tuesday games and under is 9-2 in Tampa Bay last 11 Tuesday games and Tampa Bay are 7-20 in their last 27 games on grass. NY Yankees are 60-20 in their last 80 home games and are 19-7 in their last 26 Tuesday games and are 60-28 in their last 88 games on grass. Tampa Bay are 6-21 in the last 27 meetings in New York and under is 15-5-1 in the last 21 meetings.
Tampa Bay is certainly a team that cannot be overlooked but I look for New York to get back in the win column…
