Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays were holding onto a 3–2 lead in the eighth inning last night when New York struck for six in the inning on two siesmic swings, first from Aaron Judge and later from Didi Gregorious.
Judge’s was a 2-run pop fly to right but Gregorious smashed his and it went for a grand slam. All the damage came off of Colin Poche, who got the last two outs of the seventh and retired two of the first three batters in the eighth before Judge.
Questionable, was Kevin Cash’s decision to stick with him through Luke Voit, Gary Sanchez, and Edwin Encarnacion. With the lefty coming up, Cash gave him one more better (sunk cost is a fallacy) and Sir Didi went big fly.
Tampa was missing Ji-Man Choi with CC Sabathia on the mound and it’ll probably leave him out of the lineup again on Thursday against JA Happ.
New York Yankees
Happ has faced Tampa Bay twice in his last four. He got 15 outs the first time and won and 16 the next time and lost. The Rays got him for two runs both times.
The Rays don’t have much for right-handed power and I like Happ’s cutter getting in on Yandy Diaz. The lefty should have a nice night.
Thing is, Charlie Morton is tough. I could see the Yanks hitting him for a cheap home run or two and then eventually getting into the bullpen, where Jose Alvarado is not. Somehow, the Rays are a little light on pitching these days.

I like the Yankees. Tampa could win a pitcher’s duel, if Morton is awesome.
