The Yankees won game one of the series but the Rays have now battled back and tied the series heading into game three.
New York Yankees
New York suffered their first loss of the postseason after dropping game two against the Rays. The Yankees pitching staff gave up four home runs and the ball continues to keep flying out of PetCo Park regardless if it’s the Yanks/Rays or A’s/Astros. Altogether there were 11 home runs hit in PetCo on Tuesday and we will see if this trend continues.
Giancarlo Stanton is on another level right now in the postseason. Stanton has hit five home runs in the last four games and had two in the game on Tuesday. He drove in four of the five Yankees runs in the loss and has been a force in this series for New York.
Aaron Boone will send out Masahiro Tanaka to start game three of the series. Tanaka was dominant to start the regular season but struggled down the stretch. He went 3-3 with a 4.33 ERA in 10 starts this season.
Tampa Bay Rays
Tyler Glasnow came out and pitched a great game two. He only made two mistakes in the game and they were both to Giancarlo Stanton. Stanton blasted two home runs off Glasnow to keep the Yanks in the game up until the later innings.
Randy Arozarena has been the spark plug for the Rays offense this postseason. Over the last two games, Arozarena has started the first inning with a home run to kick off the scoring for Tampa. Overall, it was a great team win for Tampa has four different players drove the ball out of the park.
During the regular season, the Rays averaged 4.84 runs per game which ranked 13th in the MLB.
Charlie Morton will take the bump for Tampa to start game three of the series. Morton didn’t look right at the beginning of the season and eventually hit the DL for a little bit but did finish the year strong. He went 2-2 with a 4.74 ERA in the regular season. but went 2-0 in his final two starts.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
I think the Rays take the third game of this series as Masahiro Tanaka has struggled down the stretch. Tanaka hasn’t made it out of the fourth inning over his last two starts and has surrendered at least three runs in his last four starts. In his last three starts against the Rays, he is 1-2 but did win the last matchup against them. Charlie Morton is 3-0 in his last three starts against the Yankees and he knows how to pitch them well at this point. Give me Tampa Bay moneyline (+118) to cover in game three.
