Today we take a look at what should be 2 of the best games of the day.
Tampa Bay Rays at New York Yankees
Tampa Bay travels to the Bronx in an unfamiliar role this late in the season, carrying an MLB-best record of 28-11 (+1,014) into this series. To put the current record in perspective, the Rays didn’t win their 28th game of the 2009 season until June 4 (56th game). The Rays are 1-2 against the Yankees in 2010, losing the series at Tropicana Field in April. Overall, the team has dropped 10 of the last 15 meetings, including seven straight at Yankee Stadium. Their fortune may change in New York this time around, carrying an impressive 15-4 road mark (+1,050) into this division battle.
