8/16 Yankees Game Preview vs. Tampa Bay Rays

The New York Yankees and the Tampa Bay Rays will continue their three game set this afternoon as the two teams face off in Tropicana Field. The Yankees will send Shane Greene to the mound looking to continue his stellar rookie season and he will face off with the Rays Drew Smyly. The game will be played at 4:10 pm ET and can be seen on the YES Network, Fox Sports 1, MLB TV, and can be heard on the radio with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman on WFAN.

Greene has made six starts this season and coming off a start in which he allowed just five hits against the Detroit Tigers as he took a shut out into the ninth inning. Greene was not able to finish off the shutout but has some extra rest today which should keep him sharp. 

Smyly was brought to Tampa in the David Price trade with the Seattle Mariners and the Detroit Tigers and makes his first start in a Rays uniform against the New York Yankees. Smyly held down the Texas Rangers in his last start pitching 7.2 innings allowing only three hits and no runs. 

Go Yankees!
