Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa Bay is trying to make a push at the AL East division crown, and get to the postseason this year.
The Rays are doing so by getting active at the trade deadline. Tampa recently acquired Lucas Duda from the Mets to add depth to the lineup.
The Rays understand how important this road division series is and want wins.
Austin Pruitt is listed to start for the Rays. Pruitt is a relief pitcher making a spot start for Tampa. He faced the Yankees twice in relief this year.
He pitched 1.2 innings, allowing eight hits, five runs (three earned) and one home run. Yankees hitters are averaging .558 against Pruitt on the year.
New York Yankees
The Yankees know how important this four game home series is. New York is currently 1.5 games above the Rays in the AL East, and one game back from division leader Boston.
I expect this series to have a playoff feel to it over the next four games.
Masahiro Tanaka (7-9, 5.37 ERA) will start for the Yankees. Tanaka has made two starts against the Rays this season. He is 0-2 with a 20.65 ERA in 5.2 innings of action against Tampa Bay this season.
He has on pitched 5.2 innings, allowing 17 hits, 13 runs (all earned), five home runs, five walks and seven strikeouts in both starts combined.

I’m looking for Tanaka to pitch well in his third outing of the year against the Rays. Take the Yankees at home in this matchup. New York should take advantage of Austin Pruitt at home.
