New York Yankees
The Yankees lead, 3–1, going into the bottom of the eighth at the Trop on Thursday. JA Happ, Adam Ottavino, and Tommy Kahnle have kept Tampa Bay’s bats quiet through seven and Zach Britton is in there to begin the eighth.
Edwin Encarnación has gone deep for the fourth time as a Yankee and the 25th time this season. Aaron Hicks has an RBI hit and a walk.
Masahiro Tanaka started that first game in London in which neither starter got out of the first inning. He just had nothing and I wonder why. It wasn’t just any other game, of course. There was a long trip, jet lag, and a totally different mound and ballpark.
So after five full days off, he should be rested and ready to bounce back in this one.
Tampa Bay Rays
Yonny Chirinos wasn’t bad on Thursday. In fact, he was pretty good. He got through seven and gave up the three runs on just five hits. He walked one and struck out five.
Brendan McKay made his Major League debut last week against Texas. He went six innings, gave up one hit, walked one, and struck out three.
The fourth overall pick in 2017 out of Louisville throws from the left side. He isn’t overpowering but he can get stuff by Major League hitters already, too. He’s got a nice change and the curve is his best pitch.
He can also hit. He was DH’ing in the minors and was in the lineup last Sunday, the day after he started. He went 0-for-4 but, long-term, this kid looks good. He might even be a better hitter than a pitcher.
