Preview: New York Yankees @ Tampa Bay Rays 4/19

The New York Yankees and the Tampa Bay Rays will play their third game of this four game series at Tropicana Field this weekend tonight. A night game at the Trop has all the makings of no one showing up, even with the Yankees as a draw for the home crowd. The Yankees will send Ivan Nova to the mound to face off with Chris Archer for the Rays at 7:10 pm ET. The game can be seen on television on the YES network, on the computer with MLB TV, and can be heard on the radio with WFAN.

Nova looks to be super again after holding the Red Sox to two runs and eight hits over 7.1 IP and a victory last time out. Nova is 6-4 with a 2.86 ERA in 13 career games against the Rays but is just 2-1 with an mediocre 4.56 ERA in five career games in Tropicana Field.

Archer is coming off his worst start of the young season after he gave up 12 hits on Monday against the Baltimore Orioles for his first loss. Archer has been a Yankee Killer in his career though with a 3-0 record with a 1.23 ERA against the Yankees last season. This is a much different and improved offense this time around so hopefully the Yankees can plate enough runners to get another victory.

Go Yankees!!
