The Rays will continue their three-city, nine-game road trip through the AL East in the Bronx, where they’ll face the Yankees for a three-game set.
If winning series is the name of the game, the Rays failed miserably. They allowed the Yankees to take two-of-three when they could have swept the Evil Empire — their first home series loss to the Yankees since June 2013. Let me put it this way: The Rays NEEDED to win the series, period. Regardless how inconsistent the Detroit Tigers have been of late, I really don’t see Tampa Bay’s offense pairing well against Detroit’s pitching staff in the upcoming series.
…And so it goes.
