Yankees at Rays 9/25/19 - MLB Picks & Predictions

In Wednesday night baseball on ESPN, the New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays will square off from Tropicana Field. Last night, New York put together just a seven-hit attack during a 2-1 road loss in 12 innings. Cameron Maybin homered for the Yankees, who trail Houston by a game for the best record in the majors.

New York manager Aaron Boone has yet to name a starting pitcher for this matchup. The Yankees rank 11th in the majors with a 4.28 team ERA and have logged 53 quality starts.

The Tampa Bay Rays have won 47 of their 80 home games and are locked in a three-team race for the two AL Wild Card spots. On Tuesday, Ji-Man Choi walked it off for Tampa Bay with his 18th home run of the season. Kevin Kiermaier added a solo shot for the Rays, who won despite striking out 17 times on the night.

Thirty-five year old righty Charlie Morton (15-6 3.15 ERA) has been a major addition to the Rays’ rotation this season. Tampa Bay has won each of Morton’s last four starts and he has allowed nine runs over his last 23 plus frames.

New York SS Gleyber Torres (hamstring) got good results from his MRI and is listed as day-to-day. Through 158 games, New York ranks 2nd in OPS and 1st in runs scored. For the season, Tampa Bay ranks 15th in OPS and 14th in runs scored. Take the Rays to inch closer to a playoff berth with a home victory on Wednesday. Final Score Prediction, Tampa Bay Rays win 5-3.
