The Major League Baseball games will be held on Monday night and two East American AHL teams will face each other as the Tampa Bay Rays battle against the Yankees from New York to the Yankee Bronx Stadium. This is the first game in a series of three games. The Yankees lead season 4-2.
Pitching Matchup: The Rays have not yet announced a start for this one, while the Yankees will send Masahiro Tanaka (4-5, 3.58 ERA).
Rays end Homestand on a high note
The Tampa Bay Rays vie for first place in the American East League with the New York Yankees. They would already have a lead in the division if they played a little better at home this year. The Rays enter this game after seven games at home. They have scored only 3-4 in these games, which now puts their home record at only 20-18 on a year, against 23-10 on the road. The Rays are only half a game in the eastern part of the AL and this makes this series a huge one for both teams. We also note that the two teams must be wary of the Boston Red Sox, who start to take control and who play only 5.5 matches.
The Rays ended their stay on a positive note by beating the Angels by 6 to 5. The Rays had a 6-2 lead to move to the 9th and had to stay alive, the Halos scored two goals to reach the score of 6-5. Diego Castillo allowed both races, but he held out for the save, which was his 7th of the year. Ryne Stanek gave up a goal in 1.1 inning in the first run, while Colin Pouche (1-1, 5.68 ERA) started the scoreless 6th and 7th inning to win. In attack, Yandy Diaz and Brandon Lowe each had two hits and a run scored, while Lowe (15th) and Tommy Pham (10th) both played in the depth. The Rays were led by their pitcher this year, but they have now allowed five or more points in four of their last five games. It is not easier because they are about to face the Yankees who have achieved the best scores.

Yonny Chirinos will be 7-2 with 14.8 points (14 starts) in seven games this year, including a 1-1 record, with a time of 2.79 in his last three starts and 3-1 with a BPM of 3.00 in six games (three starts) on the road. Chirinos is 4-2 with a 2.36 ERA at eight starts. During his career, he made 15 starts in all and 4-5 with a time of 3.29 in these 15 starts. Chirinos is 2-1 with a 2.33 ERA in four games (a start) in his career against the Yankees.
The Rays were below average in attack since they placed 17th in the league scoring, registering 4.73 rpg, while ranking 5th with a .262 and 18th average with their counterparts in the league. 93. They are very strong since they rank first in the ERA championship with 3.06 points while placing 3rd in the WHIP at 1.12 and 3rd in the K with 677. Their pen ranks at 2nd place ERA at 3.41.
Yankees Homer at the 19th consecutive game
For a good part of the year, the New York Yankees have put a whole team of stars on the list of injured, but they still had one of the best offenses in the league this year. The Yankees have always played a big part in the home race and they rank among the top eight in this category this year. It's amazing that Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton have been on the injured list for a good part of the year. Equally impressive is the fact that the Yankees have scored 19 straight games after winning the match against Cameron Maybin in their 10-3 win over the White Sox on Sunday. It was his 3rd of the year. Although the attack was good, she is about to improve because Judge will soon leave the IL, while Stanton is on the list of probable for Tuesday's game. We also note that the Yankees have added Edwin Encarnacion to an exchange with the Mariners and that it has 21 circuits since the year after having thrown at least 32 of them into the atmosphere during each of his last seven seasons. This offense is about to be completely scary.
Back to their 10-3 win against the White Sox. The Yankees scored 12 hits. Brett Gardner and Austin Romine led the attack and got two hits and four RBIs. Five players in total had two hits in the match for the Yankees, who scored 37 points in their last four wins, against just 16 points in their last five defeats. James Paxton was looking to recover from a terrible exit against the Mets. He did so by tuning only two REs on eight hits and one walk, while eliminating seven innings in 6.0. He is now at 4-3 with an average of 3.93 over the year. Something must give in this match, because the Rays are one of the best teams in the league on the road, while Yanks have gone from 22 to 13 here at home.
Gone power streaks.
