The Yankees, 22-23, take on the Rays, 21-23, at Tropicana field. The Yankees have been hot, winning 7 of their last 10. The Rays are 5-5 in their last 10.
Pitching for the Yankees is Tanaka who is 2-0 with a 3.24 era and 1.05 whip. Archer goes for the Rays at 3-5 with a 5.16 era and 1.61 whip.
New York Yankees
The Yankees just won 6 games in a row, which was ended by Toronto the other night. During this win streak they put up at least 4 runs, they even got 4 vs the Jays but let the game slip away in the 7th.
They’ve scored a total of 36 runs in their last 7 games, so it looks like the Yankees are about to climb the standings.
Their win streak also consisted of solid pitching, where they gave up 4 and 3 runs just once and the other 4 games limited their opponents to just 4 runs in total.
They are clicking both offensively and defensively at the moment. Tanaka gave up just 1 in his last start, which was against Oakland and lasted 7 innings.
Against the Rays earlier this season, he gave up just 2 in 7 innings.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays have been putting up a ton of runs but have not been getting the pitching they need to close games out. They’ve lost 4 of their last 5 games despite scoring 21 runs.
In their last 11 games, they’ve mustered up 65 runs, that is nearly 6 runs per game. So there is no doubt they can definitely score.
In the last games 6, the Rays have given up a bunch of runs, 33 in total.
Giving up 5.5 runs per game isn’t going to win you many ball games. Archer on the season is not much better with his 5.16 era. In his last start he lasted just 3 innings giving up 6 to the Tigers.
He’s been inconsistent overall but is very capable of pitching a great game. He’s been pretty good at home this season, giving up 8 runs in 23 innings pitched.
