The New York Yankees will play the Tampa Bay Rays in Game 2 of their series at Tropicana Field on Friday night.
The New York Yankees are 32-13 this season and have won three games in a row. New York defeated Tampa Bay in Game 1 of this series by a score of 7-2 on Thursday. The New York pitching staff has a 2.98 ERA, a 1.10 WHIP, and a .221 opponent batting average this season. The Yankees offense has scored 215 runs with a .240 batting average and a .321 on base percentage. Aaron Judge is batting .313 with 17 home runs and 36 RBI’s for the Yankees this season. The projected starter for New York is Jameson Taillon, who is 4-1 with a 2.95 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP over 42.2 innings pitched this season.
The Tampa Bay Rays are 26-18 this season and have won two of their last three games. Prior to the Game 1 loss, Tampa Bay won both of their games against the Marlins. The Tampa Bay pitching staff has a 3.34 ERA, a 1.11 WHIP, and a .218 opponent batting average. The Rays offense has scored 191 runs with a .240 batting average and a .302 on base percentage this year. Randy Arozarena is batting .257 with four home runs and 18 RBI’s for the Rays this season. The projected starter for Tampa Bay is Jeffrey Springs, who is 2-1 with a 1.32 ERA and a 0.80 WHIP over 27.1 innings pitched this season.
New York is 4-1 in their last 5 Friday games and 5-1 in their last 6 road games. The under is 15-7 in New York’s last 22 Friday games. Tampa Bay is 5-3 in their last 8 games and 15-6 in their last 21 Friday games. The over is 6-2 in Tampa Bay’s last 8 games. New York is 6-2 in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings in Tampa Bay.
This should be a very good matchup between two pitchers that have had success this season. Springs has a very impressive ERA and has only allowed three runs in his last three starts, but does not pitch many innings. Taillon is coming off of a start against the White Sox where he allowed one run over 7 innings pitched. I like the under in this matchup and think the Rays bullpen will finish off another good start from Springs.
