New York Yankees Vs. Tampa Bay Rays: Tuesday Preview, Game Time And More

The Tampa Bay Rays and New York Yankees continue a three-game series on Tuesday, as the Rays play host to the Bronx Bombers on Tuesday night.

The Rays brought themselves to within two and a half games of the Yankees in the AL East standings with a 4-3 win over New York on Monday, and Alex Cobb will look to bring Tampa Bay even closer.

Cobb draws the start on Tuesday night, as he looks to earn his ninth win of the season. Cobb brings an 8-8 record to go along with a 4.39 ERA and 1.32 WHIP into the contest.

Tampa Bay's offense will have to face off against Freddy Garcia, who has failed to escape the fifth inning in each of his last two starts. On the season, Garcia is 7-5 with a 4.90 ERA and 1.37 WHIP, and has only averaged 86 pitches per start.

Evan Longoria, who exited the game on Monday because of fatigue, expects to play on Tuesday.

First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. ET. Televised coverage can be found both on Sun Sports and ESPN.
