The New York Yankees will host the Tampa Bay Rays for the first time this season and hope to get off to a better start then they did with the series against Athletics, losing all three games in the confines of home.
Matt Moore will start for the Rays while the Yankees will counter with CC Sabathia to kick off the series with relievers Andrew Miller and Dellin Betances waiting in the wings.
“They’re really focused on shortening the game,” Rays Manager Kevin Cash said. “This year, they have the potential to be even more dominating. You’re talking about two of the best on one team.”
