The New York Yankees and the Tampa Bay Rays will decide the ALDS on Friday night at Petco Park. Gerrit Cole will take the mound for the Yankees and likewise Tyler Glasnow for the Tampa Bay Rays. Over the last 3 starts for Gerrit Cole against the Rays, 1 win, 1 loss, and 1 no decision. Cole is averaging a 1.59 WHIP over the last 3 starts against Tampa and has 9 earned runs. Cole kept the Tampa bats in check in Game 1 of the ALDS back on Monday 10/5 and will need another performance as such on Friday. On the other side, Tyler Glasnow has won 2 of the last 3 starts against the Yankees. Glasnow picked up the victory on Tuesday in Game 2 of the ALDS, although only going 5 innings. I think the Tampa offense will bounce back against Cole here on Friday night, take the Tampa Bay Rays on the money line.
