Tampa Bay Rays vs New York Yankees Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview of the match for the MLB Baseball Game on Wednesday October 7th, 2020.

 

Charlie Morton Tampa Bay Rays
ERA 4.74 (2-2)

Charlie Morton received a no-decision in his final regular season start of the year on Friday against the Phillies, striking out eight while allowing four runs (three earned) over five innings pitched.

Morton allowed seven hits and one walk as the Rays eventually won 6-4. It wasn't the season that fantasy managers were hoping for when they used an early-round draft pick on Morton.

One year after registering a 3.05 ERA with 240 strikeouts in 194 2/3 innings, Morton put up a 4.74 mark to go along with 42 strikeouts in 38 frames.

He's in line to start the third game of the Rays' Wild Card round (if necessary).

Masahiro Tanaka New York Yankees
ERA 4.33 (3-3)

Masahiro Tanaka is scheduled to start Game 3 of the ALDS against the Rays.

Tanaka was roughed up by Cleveland in his last start, yielding six runs over four innings. He will follow Gerrit Cole and Deivi Garcia in the ALDS.

Tanaka owned a 3.56 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 44 strikeouts over 48 innings during the regular season.

Tampa Bay Rays

Rays are 7-0 in Morton's last 7 starts vs. a team with a winning record

Rays are 7-1 in their last 8 road games vs. a team with a winning record

Tampa Bay owned the Yankees in the regular season, winning eight of ten games, but they were defeated in the first game of the series.

The Rays hope to get back on track and gain momentum here to avoid being behind the eighth ball. Randy Arozarena had three hits in the game while the rest of the Tampa Bay team had a combined triple for 29.

Ji-Man Choi (his first of the playoffs) and Arozarena (his first) each have Blake Snell (1- 1) assuming the loss on the mound allowing four runs and six hits with two walks and four strikeouts in five innings of work.

Charlie Morton takes the hill and records his first playoff start for the Rays in this contest after making nine starts in the regular season. He finished the regular season 2-2 with a 4.74 ERA, 1,395 WHIP, ten marches and 42 strikeouts in 39 innings of work this season.

New York Yankees

New York rocked their regular-season struggles against the Rays when their power faltered en route to victory in Game 1.

The Yankees are looking to land a fatal blow to Tampa Bay here. Aaron Hicks scored the Yankees with three hits in the victory.

Kyle Higashioka, Clint Frazier, Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge all went to victory. The power play benefited Gérit Cole (2-0), who took the victory on the mound.

He pitched six innings, allowing three runs and six hits with two walks and eight strikeouts before returning the ball to the bullpen.

Masahiro Tanakat takes the ball for his second playoff start in this contest after making ten regular season starts for the Yankees.

He finished the regular season 3-3 with a 3.56 ERA, 1,167 WHIP, eight marches and 44 strikeouts in 48 innings of work during the year.

In his last three starts, Tanaka is 1-1 with a 7.20 ERA, 1.73 WHIP, six walks and 13 strikeouts in 15 innings of work.
