Tampa Bay Rays vs. New York Yankees

Tampa Bay Rays

The Tampa Bay Rays are currently holding on to the final Wild Card spot in the American League with a 1.5-game lead over the Baltimore Orioles. They'll be facing off against the New York Yankees on Tuesday. On the other hand, left-handed pitcher Jeffrey Springs is currently 4-3 with a 2.56 ERA. In his last five starts, he's 1-1 with a 3.33 ERA against the Yankees. He also faced them this season and allowed two runs in six innings. The team's pitching staff has a 3.45 ERA, which is good enough for fourth in the league.

The Tampa Bay Rays are led by Harold Ramirez, Yu Chang, Yandy Diaz, and Randy Arozarena. On the road, they're batting .240, but since the All-Star break, they're .228. In 10 games against the New York Yankees, they're batting just .177. Brandon Lowe is 2-4 against them, while Yandy Diaz is hitting .278 with 18 ABs. Isaac Paredes is .286, and Francisco Mejia is hitting .333.

The Rays converted their seven hits into four runs on Monday. Even though they had one defensive error, the team managed to shut down New York's batting lineup.

New York Yankees

Despite being on track to having the best league record and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, the New York Yankees have struggled recently. They are two games behind the Houston Astros for the best record in the American League. The offense has also gone cold, as in their last five games, they have scored three runs or fewer each time they have faced off.

The struggling offense will look back on track when they face off against the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday. The team's starting pitcher will be left-hander Nestor Cortes, who is 9-3 with a 2.67 ERA. He has been very effective against the Rays this season, going 2-1 with a 3.06 ERA. On the other hand, the New York offense is hitting .242 as a team and has a .328 on-base percentage, which is tied for third in the league. They also have a .438 batting average.

The Yankees could keep up with the Rays' pitches. The team managed to hit seven times but fell short to Tampa Bay's fielding. Aaron Judge had a batting average of .300 on Monday and was only struck out once.
