The Rays will look to ruin the A-Rod Finale game. Tonight they are backed with a Powerful league wide system that plays on road favorites off a +140 or higher road dog loss vs a team like NY that won a road dog last night scoring 4 or less runs.

Evan Longoria (26-for-67, six homers, 14 RBIs) and Logan Forsythe (8-for-18, two homers) are only two of many Rays with good success against Sabathia. The current Tampa Bay team is batting a combined .329 over 161 at bats versus him, and I think they’ll give Sabathia plenty to work with tonight.

Jimmy Boyd

The Rays send out Chris Archer, who has just not had things go his way in 2016. Archer is just 6-15 with a 4.26 ERA and 1.316 WHIP in 24 starts. The key here is that he’s been throwing like the Cy Young candidate everyone expected to see all year of late. He’s got a 2.21 ERA and 0.836 WHIP in his last 3 starts and has looked sharp going back over his last 5 starts.
