Four-run sixth leads Yankees past Rays

New York scored four runs in the bottom of the sixth to break a tie and send it to a 5-1 home win Thursday over Tampa Bay. Luke Voit helped pace the Yankees offense as he ended the game 1-for-3 with a solo home run plus a walk. Didi Gregorius finished 2-for-4 with a run and two RBIs. Austin Romine went 1-for-3 and scored a run. Luis Cessa earned the win in relief as he gave up two hits with three strikeouts and one walk over 3 1/3 scoreless innings. J.A.

MLB Betting Trends


The Rockies are 1-4 in their last five road games. Colorado is 5-0 in the last five Freeland starts on Fridays.

New York

The Yankees are 16-5 in their last 21 Friday games. New York is 11-4 in the last 15 Happ starts.


Freeland has been brutal all season, a major disappointment for a Colorado team that had playoff hopes. Going up against a power-hitting Yankees team doesn't do a lot to offset getting away from Coors Field. Happ is generally efficient enough and with the run support he's likely to get, I'm taking the Yankees to earn the win here.
