Rays Vs. Yankees Preview: Tampa Bay Looks To Bounce Back In Game 2 Of Series

The Tampa Bay Rays didn't get out ahead of the New York Yankees in the first game of their three game set, and ultimately lost 5-3. They'll have a chance to right the ship on Wednesday and even their series against those bombers. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 and you can find the game on Sun Sports or the MLB Network.

The pitching matchup for Wednesday's game might not have as much sizzle as Tuesday's pairing did, but it should still be a pretty interesting matchup. Jeff Neimann takes the mound for the Rays, and he will be opposed by the Yankees newest starter, David Phelps. Phelps has come on strong for the Yankees in a limited role of late, and it will be interesting to see how the Rays handle a pitcher they may not be that familiar with.

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.
