At 7:10 pm, our selection is on the New York Yankees over the Tampa Bay Rays.  After getting blown out in Game 1 on Monday, the Rays needed to come back strong on Tuesday against the resurgent New York offense and pitching.  That's exactly what Tampa did, taking Game 2 by a 7-5 final.  Tonight is the Yanks opportunity to grab the lead back in what promises to be a close and tough three-of-five series. Veteran RH Masahiro Tanaka will be on the mound for New York and he'll be looking to atone for a sub-par performance in the Wild Card Series against Cleveland (4 IP; 6 ER).  The poor start against the Tribe notwithstanding, Tanaka has been a beast in the post-season throughout his career.  In nine lifetime playoff starts, the 31-year-old is 5-3 with a 2.70 ERA in 50 innings.  Perhaps more important is that Tanaka has faced the Rays 21 times (all starts) and he is 11-5 with a 3.31 ERA and 0.92 WHIP against them in just over 130 innings.  And Tanaka should enjoy his first career start in pitcher-friendly Petco Park.  Take New York.  As always, good luck...Al McMordie
