Yankees At Rays Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule, Probable Pitchers

The New York Yankees will try to even their series against the Rays on Tuesday night with Freddy Garcia on the mound. The Yankees began their 10-game road trip with a Labor Day loss in Tampa as the offense continued to struggle. They now turn to Garcia, who is 7-5 with a 4.90 ERA. He went 3-0 in the month of August, but did not make it out of the fifth inning in his last two starts.

The Rays, who are now just 2.5 games back of the Yanks, will counter with young righty Alex Cobb. After a rough start to the season, Cobb settled in during the month of August. He posted a 3.38 ERA in six games, which included a start against the Rangers that led to eight earned runs to his name.

Failing to get the opener with CC Sabathia on the hill was a tough blow for Joe Girardi, but it's the offense that has to come alive as they try to fend off the Rays and Orioles. Baltimore trails by one game. First pitch is set for 7 p.m. at Tropicana Field. YES will have the local broadcast while ESPN will nationally televise the game.
