Rays Vs. Yankees: Tampa Bay Opens Up Three Game Set In The Bronx

The Tampa Bay Rays swept the Yankees in their season opening series, can they do the same when they head to the Bronx?


The Tampa Bay Rays currently have one of the best records in Major League Baseball, and that will be put to the test when they head to the Bronx to take on the New York Yankees for a three game set. First pitch of the first game is scheduled for 7:05 pm, and you can find the game on Sun Sports.

The first game might feature the best pitching matchup of the three game set. The Rays will send the undefeated James Shields out to the mound while he will be opposed by Ivan Nova, who himself only has one loss. It's not easy to take three games from the Yankees in any given series, this win would be the fourth straight to start the season.

We'll have plenty more on this series over the next few days here on SB Nation Tampa Bay, so keep it locked to this StoryStream for all the latest news and updates. As always, please head over to DRaysBay for more on this series and all things Tampa Bay Rays baseball. For some perspective from the other dugout, please head over to Pinstripe Alley, SB Nation's New York Yankees blog.
