The Rays have lost three games in a row.

CC Sabathia takes the rubber for the Yankees, he’s 8-12 this season with a 4.20 ERA and 1.35 WHIP.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays have played pretty good baseball since the All-Star break but have more recently lost three straight.
They are currently up 7-6 in the top of the 8th against the Orioles, so they may end up winning this one but in their three losses, scored just seven runs.
Although they don’t score very much, just 4.2 runs per game on the season, they should be able to produce in Yankee Stadium.
Alex Cobb looked great against the powerful offense of the Jays in his only start since returning from Tommy John surgery.
He also struck out seven so it didn’t take very long for him to find his old tune.
He should give the Yankees some trouble.
The Yankees continue to inch closer and closer into a playoff spot with their youth filled lineup.
The bullpen in particular is not a good one but has somehow held onto games to set up the closer, Dellin Betances.
Somehow the Yankees have scored 17 runs in their last three games, including 12 against the Jays who have one of the best starting rotations in the league and now have a very good bullpen.
Sabathia has looked good in his last three starts but he’s been unreliable in general this season.
It’s a good sign for him and the ball club who are trying to make a late season push. He’s given up just six runs in his last 19.2 innings of work over the last three games.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
Cobb looked really good in his first start so he may give the Yankees some trouble.
Sabathia has looked really good lately as well, so the Rays may have trouble scoring themselves.
Yankees stadium is very hitter friendly and the Yankees have scored 17 in their last three games but I think this one stays under.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Under 8
This game should be a close one but I think the Yankees will come out on top because they are just finding ways to win right now while the Rays are not.
