Rays @ Yankees Series PreviewPosted: August 12, 2011
After taking two out of three from the Angels, the Yankees will host the Rays in a three game set this weekend. The Rays come to the Bronx 9.5 games out of the American League East and 8.5 behind the Yankees for the Wild Card. They’ve also won seven of their last ten, including their last four straight. Here are the projected pitching match-ups:
David Price (9-10, 3.89 ERA) vs. CC Sabathia (16-6, 2.81 ERA)
Jeremy Hellickson (10-7, 3.05 ERA) vs. Phil Hughes (2-4, 7.11 ERA)
James Shields (11-9, 2.80 ERA) vs. Freddy Garcia (10-7, 3.16 ERA)
Look out for Desmond Jennings who was just called up recently has been on a tear of late and of course Evan Longoria and Casey Kotchman in the lineup.
