The New York Yankees will take on the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field on St. Petersburg, Florida on Saturday August 8, 2020 5:10 P.M, ET.

This will be the 2nd game as the Yankees and the Rays will have a double header this Saturday. The Yankees were doing good in the early part of the season, but they lost 3 of their last 4 games. The Yankees dropped game one losing at 1-0. The New York Yankees are 3rd in the American League with a 9-4 record, and are 1st in the AL East Division.

They were successful going into the season, but they are now on a 2 game losing streak. They split their series with the Phillies where they lost the final game on Thursday. This was their 1st series that they didn’t win for the year. DJ LeMahieu leads New York with 19 hits and 5 runs batted in. Aaron Judge and Gio Urshela are not far behind making a combination of 25 hits and 27 RBIs. The main reason for their recent slump is their offensive output, which is weak in their recent games. New York produced only 7 runs in their last 3 games, which is just a small fraction of their 65 runs made in 13 games. It won’t be hard to escape this hole they fell in as it is not that deep yet. They are still 4th in the league in terms of batting average at .257, along with 24 bombs, and 4 players with an OPS above 1.000. New York haven’t posted yet who will start for them in game 3.

New York Yankees vs Tampa Bay Rays Predictions 8/8/2020

The Rays should be feeling good entering Saturday with a win over the Yankees. They lost 6 of their last 8 games and are at .462 win percentage. They scored 6 runs in their last 3 games, and are 5-3 when scoring 4 or more runs. Tampa Bay’s number one issue for the season is their offensive output. Even in their win against New York they only managed 1 run. Brandon Lowe is  their best player with 13 hits and 9 RBIs, while Joey Wendele and Willy Adames got 19 hits and 4 RBIs. The Rays are batting at .211 for the season, and have made 10 homers. Lowe leads the team in batting at .302, but has been struck out 13 times which is a team high. The Tampa Bay Rays are tied in the 7th, 8th, 9th spot in the American League with the Orioles, and Astros at 6-7, and are tied with Baltimore in the 2nd and 3rd spot in the AL East Division. The starting pitcher for game 3 has not been announced by Tampa Bay yet.

New York Yankees vs Tampa Bay Rays. MLB’s pick for the 2nd game in the double header will go to the New York Yankees.
