The Tampa Bay Rays will play the New York Yankees in Game 2 of their series at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday night.
The Tampa Bay Rays are 35-26 this season and have lost three of their last four games. Tampa Bay lost Game 1 of this series by a score of 2-0 on Tuesday night. The Tampa Bay pitching staff has a 3.21 ERA, a 1.13 WHIP, and a .225 opponent batting average this season. The Rays offense has scored 255 runs with a .232 batting average and a .296 on base percentage. Randy Arozarena is batting .268 with seven home runs and 31 RBI’s for the Rays this season. The projected starter for Tampa Bay is Shane McClanahan, who is 7-2 with a 1.87 ERA and a 0.86 WHIP over 72.1 innings pitched this season.
The New York Yankees are 45-16 this season and have won five games in a row. Prior to their Game 1 win, New York won all three games against the Cubs. The New York pitching staff has a 2.81 ERA, a 1.06 WHIP, and a .215 opponent batting average. The Yankees offense has scored 309 runs with a .249 batting average and a .327 on base percentage this year. Aaron Judge is batting .313 with 24 home runs and 48 RBI’s for the Yankees this season. The projected starter for New York is Nestor Cortes, who is 5-2 with a 1.96 ERA and a 0.92 WHIP over 64.1 innings pitched this season.
Tampa Bay is 10-1 in their last 11 Wednesday games and 1-4 in their last 5 game two’s of a series. The under is 9-4-1 in Tampa Bay’s last 14 Wednesday games. New York is 41-12 in their last 53 games and 41-20 in their last 61 Wednesday games. The under is 4-1-1 in New York’s last 6 Wednesday games. The under is 5-1 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.
The Yankees were able to win a low scoring game on Tuesday night to begin this series and I think we will see another low scoring game here. Both of these starting pitchers have been very solid so far this season and both have ERA’s that are below 2.00. I am taking the under here once again.
