After a 4-3 loss on Tuesday, the Tampa Bay Rays look to bounce back against New York tonight. It was just the seventh loss in their last 30 home games.
The Rays enter the series finale this afternoon, 17 games over .500 for the first time this season, and with a two-game lead over the Boston Red Sox in the AL East. They also boast the best record in baseball.
In spite of the loss of another hurler to the injury bug, the Tampa Bay Rays earned their second series win of the season, defeating the New York Yankees for the second consecutive day, 4-0.
After an abysmal 2-4 start to the 2021 regular season, including three consecutive losses at the hands of the Red Sox, the Tampa Bay Rays return home to the friendly confines of Tropicana Field, where they will play host to the New York Yankees over the next three days.
On Tuesday, the Tampa Bay Rays made the one-year, $6.5-million deal with Chris Archer official via a Zoom press conference with the media.
