New York Yankees vs. Tampa Bay Rays

New York Yankees

The Yankees used to have the best lineup in baseball, but since the trade deadline on August 3, they have been struggling, batting just .208. In 11 games, the Yankees have only won two and lost nine, scoring only 2.9 runs per game.

Injuries to regulars Giancarlo Stanton, Matt Carpenter, and DJ LeMahieu, as well as starter Luis Severino and relievers Miguel Castro and Michael King, have buried the Yankees, who are only 2-8 in their previous ten games heading into Tuesday night's matchup.

Domingo German will start for the Yankees on Wednesday. German has pitched five times this year and has a 4.18 ERA. In 23.2 innings, he has 11 earned runs, 26 hits, and 8 walks.

Tampa Bay Rays

It was a shutout victory for the Rays in their opener on Monday. Tampa Bay kept the series alive with a two-run victory on Tuesday.

On Monday, the Rays knocked in three runs in the top of the ninth to seal a 4-0 victory. On Tuesday, they won 3-1 after scoring three runs in the top of the first inning. Despite allowing one earned run on two hits and a walk in one inning, starter Jeffrey Springs went the whole five innings.

For Wednesday's series finale, Corey Kluber will start for the Rays. Kluber has a 7-7 record and a 4.40 ERA across 22 starts this season. He has given up 57 runs on 122 hits, 17 walks, and 103 strikeouts in 116.2 innings.
