Preview: New York Yankees @ Tampa Bay Rays 4/17

The New York Yankees head out on the road to their home away from home, well one of them anyway, when they take on the Tampa Bay Rays in a four game set at Tropicana Field. Tonight we will see each teams ace on the mound as CC Sabathia takes the rubber for the Yankees and will face off with David Price for the Rays. The game will be played at 7:10 pm ET on the YES Network, on the computer with MLB TV, and on the radio with WFAN.

CC Sabathia proved once again that he was susceptible to the big inning as he took a loss on the chin to the Boston Red Sox last time out. The Yankees could have easily swept that series if CC bends but didn't break in that 6th inning against Boston. CC is the only Yankees pitcher with multiple losses this season and he deserved both of them unfortunately.

David Price held the Reds to one run on four hits and a walk while striking out 10 batters in 8.1 IP in his last start as he flirted with having the first shutout of the season. Price is 2-0 on the young season and once again looking to lead the Rays to the top of the American League East division.

Go Yankees!!
