MLB: New York Yankees at Tampa Bay Rays Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports

MLB Network will host Sunday’s matchup between the New York Yankees (62-67) and the Tampa Bay Rays (79-52) with first pitch set for 1:40 p.m. ET. The game will take place at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida, and will also air on Amazon Prime Video in the Yankees market and on Bally Sports Sun in the Rays market. Lefty Carlos Radon (1-4, 6.27 ERA) will start for the Yanks and will go up against right Zack Littell (2-4, 4.27 ERA) for the Rays.

After dropping the series opener on Friday, Tampa Bay struck back with a 3-0 shutout victory over the Yankees yesterday. The Rays were boosted by a quality start from Tyler Glasnow, who went six full innings and gave up just one hit during his time on the mound. At the plate, the Rays jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the second before Josh Lowe tacked onto the lead with an RBI double the following inning. With Baltimore also winning on Saturday, the Rays still trail the Orioles by three games in the AL East standings.

New York came crashing back down to earth in the loss after having a productive night at the plate on Friday. DJ LeMahieu got the only two base hits for the Bronx Bombers in the entire outing and the rest of the lineup could only muster up two walks.

The Rays enter the game as a -135 favorite on the moneyline over at DraftKings Sportsbook, making the Yankees +114 underdogs. The total is set at 8.
