Game Preview: New York Yankees vs. Tampa Bay Rays 9/27

The New York Yankees and the Tampa Bay Rays will continue their three-game set tonight in the Bronx with the middle game of the series. The Yankees tipped their hand a bit with the pitching matchups tonight and in this series as far as the playoffs go, more on that later, allowing Jordan Montgomery to make the start last night saving Luis Severino tonight for the Rays and Matt Andriese. The Yankees have very little to play for here as the AL East Division crown seems out of reach, although I won’t stop believing until someone a lot better at math than I am tells me that I need to, but that does not mean it’s time to take your foot off the gas.

Severino has been just what the doctor has ordered for the Yankees this season and the right-hander has come through time-and-time again as New York’s go-to pitcher. The Yankees even adjusted their starting rotation last time through to get Severino an extra start as the team attempts to chase down the Boston Red Sox in the AL East division, one of those extra starts comes tonight in the Bronx.

Andriese has three losses in his last four starts and will look to avoid a fourth loss tonight in the Bronx against the Yankees. In those four starts Andriese has posted a 8.47 ERA which has helped the Rays fall out of the AL Wild Card race after being in the thick of the race for much of the 2017 campaign.

The game will be played at 7:05 pm ET inside Yankee Stadium and can be seen on WPIX Channel 11, Fox Sun Sports and MLB TV. You can also follow along in your cars and on the radio by tuning into the WFAN broadcast with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman. Until Game 162 the Yankees will need a win, so get a win so we can start the “need a win, get a win” campaign over again in the postseason. Until then, Go Yankees!!!
