The Tampa Bay Rays and the New York Yankees meet in an AL East division matchup in MLB action from Yankee Stadium on Tuesday night.
The Tampa Bay Rays will look to build on their 3-1 win over the Yankees in Monday’s matchup. Austin Meadows had a solo home run while Manuel Margot added a double and an RBI and Randy Arozarena added an RBI as well to cap off the scoring for the Rays in the win. Kevin Kiermaier added a pair of hits with a double as well to round out Tampa Bay’s offense as the Rays put up just six hits as a team in the winning effort. Rich Hill got the win to improve to 4-2 on the year after five scoreless innings, allowing just three hits while striking out a pair. J.P. Feyereisen closed out the 9th for his 3rd save of the season. Tyler Glasnow will start here and is 4-2 with a 2.57 ERA and 98 strikeouts this season. In his career, Glasnow is 2-2 with a 3.38 ERA and 43 strikeouts against the Yankees.
The New York Yankees will try to bounce back from their loss to the Rays on Monday. Miguel Andujar went 2 for 4 with a solo home run that was the lone run that the Yankees would plate in the losing effort while Rougned Odor had a double. Aaron judge and Kyle Higashioka each had a base hit as the Yankees had just five hits as a team in the loss. Jameson Taillon took the loss, falling to 1-4 on the year after allowing all three runs on five hits while striking out five over five innings of work. Domingo German will start here and is 4-3 with a 3.06 ERA and 47 strikeouts this season. In his career, German is 3-1 with a 6.23 ERA and 31 strikeouts against Tampa Bay.
Tampa Bay is 4-0 in their last 4 road games against a right-handed starter and 42-18 in their last 60 road games while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 games as a road favorite. New York is 92-41 in their last 133 home games and 1-4 in their last 5 games as an underdog while the under is 11-1 in their last 12 games overall. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams.
This has all the makings of another pitcher’s duel kind of like the one we saw on Monday. Glasnow’s been rock solid for the Rays this year while German is no slouch and the Yanks have gone under in 11 of their last 12 games. I think this one sets up as a low-scoring game all the way, so give me the under.
