Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa Bay only had about four pitchers it could have used as it went for the sweep Wednesday evening against Toronto.
That doesn’t sound like such a tough spot but nobody was going to throw more than 50–60 pitches. It only needed three.
Everybody Kevin Cash ran out was on his game. Wilmer Font and Matt Andries combined to throw the first seven innings, giving up four hits and no runs. Diego Castillo finished off the final two, giving up one hit and striking out two.
The Rays shut the Blue Jays out and walked it off in the ninth, Matt Duffy driving in Mallex Smith with a game-winning single to complete the sweep.
With a day off on Thursday and Nathan Eovaldi starting as the long man on regular rest, the Rays’ pitching should be back to just about 100 percent going into this one at Yankee Stadium.
New York Yankees
Tampa Bay’s short and mid-relievers have been so good, though, that four, five, six innings against a guy like Eovaldi might represent New York’s best chance to do big damage.
I doubt Cash will leave Eovaldi out long enough to give up too many runs, though. He went 100 pitches in his last start because he had it going on. If he doesn’t, the Rays will be happy to cut him short and bring him back in two or three days.
The kid the Yankees are trotting out is a rookie making his Major League debut. I don’t know much about him.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction: early runs.
I suspect the Yankees will hit Eovaldi. That leaves Tampa Bay to manage its bullpen from behind, which will mean lesser arms. The Rays’ offense didn’t produce much in the last two games against Toronto but it’s maturing. It’s always tough to hit guys new to the league but Tampa’s bats are so new too that this may not be a bad matchup to get behind them.
