A pair of lefties meet on Friday night in the Bronx as the New York Yankees welcome in the Tampa Bay Rays.
LH Matt Moore will oppose LH CC Sabathia as the Yankees look to put an end to their 3 game losing streak while the Rays try to make it back to back wins.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays have been one of the most offensively challenged teams here in the early going of the season, but that wasn’t the case in the series finale in Boston.
Tampa Bay touched up 200 million dollar pitcher David Price for 8 runs while the team put up 12 in a 12-8 win.
Evan Longoria continues to produce as he has been the spark plug to this team early on this year. Longoria has seen plenty of Sabathia, collecting 24 hits against him while hitting .375.
The Rays will send out LH Matt Moore here. The southpaw comes in off a 6.1 inning start that saw him strike out 10. Moore has the ability to really command his breaking stuff, which makes him so dangerous.
The Yankees announcer called the Athletics a bunch of minor leaguers prior to their 3 game series this week. Those minor leaguers went into the Bronx and swept away the Yankees with rather ease, really making New Yorkers uneasy.
The Yankees offense has struggled as a whole, but C Brian McCann has been the main centerpiece to that. McCann has gone 1 for his last 18 as he has stranded a lot of runners during his cold streak.
Trying to play stopper, CC Sabathia takes the hill. The LH comes in off a loss to the Mariners, a start that saw him last just 4.2 innings as he really labored throughout. Sabathia has plenty of experience against the Rays, facing them 38 times in his career. In that span he’s gone 13-14 with a 3.73 ERA.

Free NY Yankees vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction:
The Yankees looked horrific offensively this past week against Oakland.
And even despite their 12 run outburst, the Rays offense is still trying to figure things out.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER the Number
Too much inconsistency to expect a high scoring game here. Look for both pitchers to turn in quality starts here.
