Hicks has three-hit game

New York allowed a home run in the bottom of the ninth inning Saturday evening to drop a 4-3 decision at Tampa Bay. Aaron Hicks paced the Yankees with a home run, a double and two RBIs. Brett Gardner went 1-for-2 with a solo homer plus two walks. Mike Tauchman ended the contest 2-for-3 with a double and a walk. Chad Green took the loss in relief as he gave up one earned run on one hit with one strikeout and no walks over two-thirds of an inning. James Paxton draws the starts today for New York as he enters with a 5-3 record, 4.09 ERA and 1.45 WHIP with 84 strikeouts over 70 1/3 innings.

d'Arnaud wins it with homer

Travis d'Arnaud hit a walk-off solo home run in the bottom of the ninth inning Saturday evening to send Tampa Bay to a 4-3 win over New York. d'Arnaud ended the contest 3-for-4 with the home run, two runs and two RBIs. Nate Lowe finished 1-for-3 with a homer and two RBIs. Michael Brosseau went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored. Colin Poche took the loss in relief as he gave up one earned run on one hit with one strikeout and no walks over one-third of an inning. Charlie Morton gets the start this afternoon for the Rays as he comes in with a 9-2 record, 2.36 ERA and 1.03 WHIP with 132 strikeouts over 107 innings.

MLB Betting Trends

New York

The Yankees are 7-2 in their last nine road games. New York is 8-3 in the last 11 Paxton starts.

Tampa Bay

The Rays are 21-8 in their last 29 Sunday games. Tampa Bay is 1-6 in the last seven meetings.


New York had Tampa Bay's number for a while until the Rays finally figured out a way to carve out a win yesterday. With how Morton has pitched lately plus his high strikeout/groundball rate, I like Tampa Bays' chances to do it again this afternoon. Paxton has had a shakier than expected season and I think he gets outmatched in this one.
