MLB FREE PICK: Take New York. According to latest MLB trends, The Rays are 2-6 last 8 following a win and 2-7 last 9 vs. a right-handed starter. The Yankees are 28-9 last 37 Friday games, 75-36 last 111 at home in series and 20-7 last 27 as a favorite of 110 to -150. 

The Rays send out Roberto Hernandez (4-7, 5.02) to the mound. He allowed five runs on six hits on May 24 against the Yankees. Phelps is pitching well for the Yankees, who need a good start. He did allow four runs at the Los Angeles Angels on June 15, but had come off giving up just one run in his previous two starts. Phelps pitched decently in that May 24 start against the Yankees, allowing 4 runs in 7 2/3 innings. Tampa Bay has struggled lately, losing six of their last nine games. They needed a good start from Moore, who had a 13.86 ERA in his last three June starts. The Yankees have won eight straight series at home against the Rays. While the Yankees have struggled offensively, they'll wake up against Hernandez, who has allowed 18 runs in his last three starts against the Yankees. Hernandez has given up 11 runs in his last three starts overall, to the Royals, Tigers and Boston.
