A pretty exciting AL East matchup is coming up this Tuesday, as the New York Yankees will look to take another step towards the postseason taking on the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field.
New York Yankees
The vast majority of baseball fans would have expected a while lot more out of this team if they were asked during this past preseason, but the Bronx Bombers have just not looked very good with their batting lineup being especially disappointing.
Their recent 1-3 run has also not helped things, as they are now 9 games back of the Red Sox and it really does appear as though they are destined to fight it out for a Wild Card spot if they are to make the playoffs.
Jordan Montgomery will head to the hill this Tuesday for New York and he comes into this game with some seriously good stats against the Rays over his career holding Tampa Bay to a .200 average and a whopping 30.3% K rate.
Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa Bay has simply been awesome this year, as they finally have a respectable batting lineup to back up the excellent pitching staff they have and Tampa continues to prove that focusing on playing fundamentally sound baseball is what wins you games.
The Rays will be looking to get back to winning ways, as they have their 5 game winning streak snapped last time out with a loss against the Cleveland Indians which ended with a score of 3-2, as Cleveland came on strong in the bottom of the 8th to pick up the win.
Shane McClanahan gets the call to the hill this Tuesday and although it is a small sample size, he has got crushed by the Yankees over his career allowing New York to hit well over .400 against him, but given what we have seen from him this year it would not surprise me if he bounces back here.

Free New York Yankees vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction:
The New York Yankees offense has not been all that scary this year, and with a guy I believe in starting on the mound for Tampa, and the fact that this game is at Tropicana Field which traditionally does not give up many runs, I think the under is the way to go here.
Jordan Montgomery has not exactly been beat up by the Rays over his career either and it would not surprise me if he comes out and has a nice outing which will certainly help this total stay under the 8.
