Battle in The Bronx: New York Yankees vs Tampa Bay Rays
NY Yankees: In a torrid AL East tussle with Toronto
Feeling they would struggle some in their first season without Derek Jeter, TopBet bookmakers had 14 teams with a better World Series price than the New York Yankees back in the preseason. Additionally, the Yankees projected win total was pegged at 81 games. Playing above expectations, New York is 75-58 and they are in a fierce battle with the Toronto Blue Jays for the top perch in the AL East Division. The Yankees were a mediocre 14-14 in August but they’re riding a 6-1 run including their 5-2 win over Tampa Bay in the series opener last night. New York had four hits last night but three were homeruns.
Tampa Bay Rays: Inconsistent season is crawling to a close in Florida
In or around first place for much of the first half, a 22-23 record since the All-Star break has pushed Tampa Bay out of playoff contention in the AL East. The Rays do have an outside shot at an AL Wild Card berth but even that is doubtful as Tampa Bay is 4.5 games out with three teams ahead of them. The Rays are on an 8-12 recent run and overall only Miami (505) and Atlanta (482) have scored less runs than the 508 the Rays have plated. Tampa Bay trails New York by a 5-9 count in the season series to date and a suspect starting pitcher looms as a major problem for Tampa Bay today.
New York vs Tampa Bay MLB Prediction: The Bronx Bombers have an edge in the pitchers duel here as Yankees RHP Nathan Eovaldi (14-2 ERA 4-17) faces Rays LHP Matt Moore (1-3 ERA 8.78) in the rumble on the rubber. Although Evoaldi has benefited from solid run support in more than a few of his starts, he has also pitched well during his first year in the Big Apple as he has allowed three runs or less in 20 of his 26 starts. Recovering from offseason Tommy John surgery, Moore has been less as he has allowed 26 runs over 26.2 innings pitched during his six starts this season. Back the Yankees in this contest with a 500 unit wager on the money line price posted on the TopBet MLB betting board.
