MLB FREE PICK: Take the Tampa Bay Rays. According to latest MLB trends, the Yankees are 4-9 in their last 13 during game 2 of a series, 3-7 in their last 10 games as a road underdog of +110 to +150, 5-12 in their last 17 road games with the total set at 7.0-8.5,  2-6 in their last 8 road games and 1-6 in their last 7 games as an underdog. The Rays are 13-4 in their last 17 games following a win,  6-2 in their last 8 vs. American League East, 10-4 in their last 14 games vs. a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30, are 5-0 in Cobb's last 5 starts with the total set at 7.0-8.5 and are 6-0 in Cobb's last 6 starts. The Yankees continine to struggle with injuries and are starting to lose their grip on the AL East lead. They are just one game up on the Orioles and 2.5 on the Rays, who won the opener. Curtis Granderson (hamstring) pinch hit on Monday, 1B Mark Teixeira is still out and Robinson Cano is questionable with a hip injury. Add that to a mediocre pitcher on the mound in Garcia and the Rays should win this one. Once they get the lead, closer Fernando Rodney shuts the door (41 svs).
