Yankees (16-14) Vs. Rays (20-11): Game Time, TV Schedule And More

The New York Yankees will play host to the Tampa Bay Rays on Thursday night in the rubber match of their three game set.

The Yankees are seeking to avoid consecutive home losses to the first place Rays, and will turn to their ace C.C. Sabathia to carry the load. Sabathia will be opposed by Tampa's stud young left hander David Price, who is off to a strong 5-1 (2.35 ERA) start this season.

New York received a solid effort from its bullpen last night until new closer (or at least the guy we assume will continue to be the closer) David Robertson allowed four ninth inning runs. He'll need to flex some resolve if another save opportunity presents itself on Thursday night.

Game Time: 7:05 p.m. EST

TV Coverage: YES
