Rays @ Yankees Series Preview

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:

Friday

David Price (9-10, 3.89 ERA) vs. CC Sabathia (16-6, 2.81 ERA)

Saturday

Jeremy Hellickson (10-7, 3.05 ERA) vs. Phil Hughes (2-4, 7.11 ERA)

Sunday

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.
