This is the first of a double-header after yesterday’s rainout. There is a lot of buzz from the Jay’s side with the debut of their top-pitching prospect.
Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa Bay got one in the third, one in the fourth, and one in the fifth en route to a 3–1 victory in New York on Monday.
Rich Hill went five scoreless innings at 41 years young and has now given up just five runs in his last 41 innings pitched.
Ryan Thompson closed out Tampa Bay’s fifth win in a row and 16th in its last 17 games. Thompson becomes the seventh different Rays’ reliever with a save this season.
Tampa continues to dominate on the road and get the best of the Yankees (see trends below). It will hand the ball to Tyler Glasnow for the start Tuesday.
Glasnow is the ace. He leads the staff in innings pitched and has racked up a 4–2 record in 11 starts. He’s already got 98 strikeouts to just 23 walks with an ERA+ of 145.
He gave up one run in five innings to get the win against New York in the middle of April. He struck out seven and walked a season-high four.
The Rays have won his last three starts. Then again, they have won just about everybody’s last three starts. They’re simply the hottest team in baseball.
New York Yankees
New York got another good start out of newcomer Jameson Taillon but just couldn’t muster any offense, bar a Miguel Andujar solo home run off of Michael Wacha in the bottom of the seventh inning.
It was New York’s fourth straight loss and sixth in its last seven games.
After a bit of a rough start following his return from injury and a domestic violence case, Tuesday’s starting pitcher Domingo German has thrown much better of late.
He’s 4–1 in his last seven starts and the Yankees have won six of those seven games.
German has gone into the sixth inning in each of the outings and all the way through the sixth five times. He isn’t putting up big strikeout numbers but has walked just eight in those last seven starts.
His only start against Tampa came before his hot run began. He went four innings, gave up eight hits, four runs, and took the loss on April 10th at Tropicana Field.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction: play the hot hand with Tampa Bay.
A team on a winning streak like Tampa Bay ought to be more than a modest -130 favorite, even if its on the road.
This streak isn’t going to slow down with the ace on the hill. Look for Glasnow to give up a solo home run or two but get through at least six innings with eight or nine strikeouts.
And Tampa Bay wins again.
