Take the Rays
The Yankees took the first two games of this series and we cashed in on both of them but today we are on the Rays. The Yankees have their ace Cole pitching today and there is no questioning just how dominant he can be. However, this is a very good Rays team and they have had success against this Yankees team in the past, including Cole. Cole's last outing versus Tampa Bay saw him give up 5 ER in 5 IP. 21 year old Luis Patino will be on the hill for the Rays. In just 5 starts this season Patino doesn't have great numbers with an ERA over 5 but this kid does have good stuff. In 25.2 IP he has 28 strikeouts. With all the buzz about Gallo coming to the Yankees I think this Rays team gets some revenge today.
