Tampa Bay Rays vs. New York Yankees AL Division Series Preview

The Tampa Bay Rays (40-20) carried their winning ways into the WIld Card round by sweeping the Toronto Blue Jays last week. Rays’ pitching only allowed three runs in the series, and they’ve had five days off to reset. Starting pitchers Blake Snell (4-2) and Tyler Glasnow (5-1) are set to go again in games one and two of this Division Series. The Rays were 8-2 against the Yankees in the regular season in 2020, so expect them to come into Petco Park confident.

The New York Yankees (32-28) made the most of their Wild Card spot by slugging their way past the Cleveland Indians in two games. Giancarlo Stanton had a home run in each game, and Gary Sanchez had three key runs batted in as part of the crazy game two. Even though game two was intense and crazy long, the Yankees have had the same days of rest as the Rays. With starting pitcher Gerrit Cole ready to go in game one, give these Bronx Bombers more than just a slugger’s chance.
