Rays at Yankees 6/17/18 - MLB Picks & Predictions

The Rays and the Yankees have started to have a good division rivalry on the year so far. However, the Rays are the team that has been playing a little bit on the weaker side on the year when compared to the Yankees. This is definitely going to be a major game for the Yankees as they are in a dead heat with the Red Sox and both of those teams are 15 games ahead of the Rays.

The Rays are coming into this game with a team ERA of 3.92 on the season. The Rays have managed to get a total of 276 runs scored this year and are hitting at a clip of .253 on the season.

With the Yankees the team is coming into the game with a total of 354 runs crossing the plate and the Yankees are hitting at a clip of .252 on the season so far. The Yankees do have a team ERA of 3.47 so far this year. Heading to the mound for the Yankees will be CC Sabathia. Sabathia has really started to find his old form of when he was a great pitcher this season. On the year Sabathia has been able to throw a total of 63.1 innings and struck out a total of 47 batters. This has led to Sabathia being able to get a 4-1 record with an ERA that sits at 3.27.

The Rays have not released who they are sending out to counter Sabathia from the mound. However, the Rays pitching staff has really had a challenge on the year of being competitive and it could easily lead to the Rays having to pick the pitcher they think will do the best possible job, but still come up short.

The Yankees are sending out Sabathia to the mound and he has been throwing hard this year and looks like the All-Star he has been in the past. The Rays have not settled on a starter yet, but even if they send out an ace the Rays will struggle on the offensive side of the ball with Sabathia on the mound. Look for the Yankees to completely dominate this game here as the Yankees win. Final Score Prediction, New York Yankees win and cover the run line 7-1.
