Rays Analysis: Looking to push over AL competition

Tampa Bay managed to even the series against the Angels at home by winning a close game in the final matchup last Thursday. The Rays, with an 11-9 record, were sitting in 3rd place in the AL East, trailing the Yankees by 2.5 games. They secured the win by scoring 2 runs in the first inning and maintaining the lead throughout the rest of the game.

In the triumph, Yandy Diaz and Amed Rosario contributed two hits each, resulting in a total of 5 hits for the Rays.


Yankees Analysis: Stabilizing in the East

The Yankees halted a 3 game losing skid by staging a 9th inning rally to secure victory against the Blue Jays in the last game of their series, barely avoiding the sweep. New York, boasting a 13-6 record, maintained a slim lead over the Orioles in the AL East standings.

In the matchup with Toronto, Juan Soto delivered 3 hits while Oswaldo Cabrera chipped in with 2 hits to power the team’s massive 11 hit offensive play.

Clarke Schmidt is set to take the mound for the Yankees, marking his 4th start of the season. With a record of 1-0, he has maintained a 3.68 ERA, a 1.636 WHIP, and has recorded 8th walks and 16 strikeouts in a total of 14.2 innings pitched so far this season.

This will be a closer matchup than expected, however our baseball analysis suggests New York’s depth will be the key while playing at home.
