The New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays face off on Wednesday in an MLB showdown at Tropicana Field. The two teams have split the first two games of this series. 

The Yankees sit with a 50-18 but they have lost two of their last three games. In both the losses they were competitive, but they couldn’t get the third run in the 9th inning on Tuesday to tie it up. The Yankees offense and pitching are both the top in baseball and they have a healthy lead in the American League East. Aaron Judge has hit 25 home runs and driven in 40 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Rays who sit with a 37-31 record overall and the biggest issue for them has been their inconsistency and over the last three games they have scored only eight runs total. The Rays overall is averaging 4.03 runs per game which is 24th in the league. Ji-Man Choi has been having a strong season for the Rays hitting six home runs and driving in 34 RBIs.

On the mound for the Yankees is Jordan Montgomery who sits with a 3-1 record and an ERA of 2.72. In his last start against the Toronto Blue Jays, he went six innings giving up three hits and two runs. 

On the mound for the Rays is Shane Baz who sits with an 0-1 record and an ERA of 5.40. In his last start against the Baltimore Orioles, he went six innings giving up two hits and zero runs. 

The Yankees are 5-0 in Montgomery’s last five starts. The under is 4-0 in the Rays last four games during Game 3 of a series. The under is 9-1 in Montgomery’s last 10 starts during Game 3 of a series. 

Shane Baz is coming off a strong start, but he still sits with an ERA of 5.40 and I expect the Yankees bats are going to tee off on him here. The Yankees are averaging 5.12 runs per game and they will reach at least that in this game. The Rays offense isn’t going to score enough and the Yankees will win this game on the run line.
