Game Preview: New York Yankees @ Tampa Bay Rays 6/22

Good morning Yankees family and welcome to the weekend, well almost anyway, and welcome to another three-game set between the New York Yankees and the Tampa Bay Rays. In the first of a three-game weekend set inside Tropicana Field the Yankees will send CC Sabathia to the mound to face off with Ryne Stanek for the Rays. This series has all the makings of another two of three victories for New York, so let’s get to it here in Tampa St. Pete.

Sabathia heads into this start fresh off the longest outing of his season when he logged 7.2 innings pitched against the Tampa Bay Rays in a loss on Sunday. Sabathia allowed three runs on 10 hits with 10 strikeouts but the Yankees offense did not support him in the loss. 

Stanek has made six starts in his short MLB career including his last start against the Houston Astros back on Monday night. Stanek faced just five batters on that night retiring them all on 11 pitches extending a streak of eight straight appearances since the beginning of June without allowing a run.

The game will be played at 7:10 pm ET inside Tropicana Field in Tampa Bay and can be seen on WPIX Channel 11 and Fox Sports Sun. You can also follow along with the game on MLB TV, with the MLB At-Bat app and by tuning into the Yankees radio broadcast on WFAN with the legendary duo of John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman.

Enjoy the game, win another series, and go Yankees!!
