Today’s matchup is between the Tampa Bay Rays (44-21) and the New York Yankees (36-29).

The Rays are starting Ryan Thompson (RHP), who is 1-2 on the season pitching a 4.44 ERA, 4.33 FIP, .319 wOBA, K% of 20.2%, BB% of 7.0%, 87.1 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.41 WHIP in 26.1 innings pitched.

The Yankees are starting Jordan Montgomery (LHP), who is 2-3 on the season with a 5.11 ERA, 3.87 FIP, .316 wOBA, K% of 24.4%, BB% of 4.7%, 84.6 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.30 WHIP in 44.0 innings pitched.

The Rays are the 4th best in the Majors in Relieving Pitching, while the Yankees are 20th.

On the hitting side, the Rays have a .320 wOBA and a .325 OBP. The Yankees have a .335 wOBA and a .340 OBP. The Rays have 80 HRs this season while the Yankees have 94 HRs.

I like the Rays with Ryan Thompson on the mound. The Rays have been able to catch momentum and take control of the series. The Rays also have the 6th highest wOBA against LHP but are 19th in ERA. I still like them to take this game, especially with how strong their bullpen is.
