For starters: Rays vs. Yankees, playing as "home" team at Mets stadium

For starters: Rays vs. Yankees, playing as

With Hurricane Irma bringing wind and water to Tampa and the entire western coast of Florida, the Rays became a team without a home ahead of a scheduled series at the Trop against the Yankees. The only Ray who struck a positive chord with the crowd was former Met Lucas Duda, who returned to Queens for the first time since the late July trade that sent him to Tampa (and even got to use his old locker in the home clubhouse).

It added up to a 5-1 NY victory over the Tampa Bay Rays in the opener of a three-game series relocated from Tropicana Field to Citi Field because of Hurricane Irma's impact on Florida's Gulf Coast.

The over is 8-1 in New York last 9 road games and New York are 6-2 in their last 8 overall while New York are 6-2 in their last 8 games on grass.

The loss cost the Yankees a game in the standings with the first-place Boston Red Sox winning. Pitching's been there. Hitting's been there. The New York Yankees give Tuesday's start at the Tampa Bay Rays to right hander Sonny Gray.

The Yankees (78-65) have won three straight and lead the Minnesota Twins by four games in the race for the first American League wild card.




"It's what we expected", said Tampa starter Jake Odorizzi after the game.

Aaron Judge walked leading off the fourth for the Yankees, went to third on Gary Sanchez's single - New York's first hit - and scored on Didi Gregorius' sacrifice fly. NY trails the first-place Boston Red Sox by three games in the AL East. Snell will be looking to bounce back from his shortest start in more than a month. He not only pitched six scoreless innings, giving up only one hit, he also provided his own offense, going two-for-three with a pair of RBIs in a win over the Brewers.

If a starting pitcher gives the Yankees seven great innings, he's usually done. Gray earned the win last Thursday when he allowed an unearned run over 5 2/3 innings as the Yankees beat the Baltimore Orioles 9-1. He was 0-for-2 with two hard-hit flyouts before leaving for a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning.

The Rays have a poor implied total (3.68 runs) in a batter-friendly matchup (8.0 over/under, 0.929 park factor), so you might want to look elsewhere for fantasy production. numberFire's models project Miller to score 7.6 FanDuel points at a cost of $2,600 on Tuesday.
