Maybin provides lone offense

Choi socks walk-off homer

Ji-Man Choi hit a walk-off solo home run Tuesday night to lead Tampa Bay to a 2-1 victory over New York. Choi ended the contest 1-for-4 with the solo homer plus a walk.

MLB Betting Trends

New York

The Yankees are 0-4 in the last four Loaisiga starts. New York is 61-29 in its last 90 games overall. 

Tampa Ray

The Rays are 4-0 in the last four Morton starts. Tampa Bay is 35-16 in its last 51 games overall.


Tampa Bay sends the nearly always reliable Morton to the hill today and he should get better run support than Rays' pitcher received yesterday. Loaisiga has shown flashes, but he is still young and prone to mistakes. Look for Tampa Bay to get another big win here in its quest for an AL Wild Card bid.
