Yankees Facing Garza: A Sure Bet

The New York Yankees defeated the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday, giving the Bronx Bombers wins in each of the last nine games that Matt Garza has started against them. The Rays’ righthander has been handed losses in two of three in which he’s taken the mound against New York in 2010 — all after July 31 — and, in that game, he received a no-decision in the Rays’ 5-4 loss. That’s the Yankees longest winning streak against one starting pitcher since they won 11 consecutive games in which Kenny Rogers started against them, from 1994 to 2004. That streak is a bit exaggerated since Rogers pitched for the Yankees for two seasons during that period. Make sure to watch this one in 2011.

    Great blog you got over here! The Yankees vs. Rays series is one of the biggest of the year with one of the best pitching matchups in the final game of the series. It could be the deciding factor of who wins the AL east, but for me I could care less at this point. The thing is that both teams are going to get into the playoffs no matter what, and I think the MLB has to do something about this. Make things more competitive etc. Also, you think you could check out my blog cuz I really wanna hear what you have to say. http://chrisross91.wordpress.com/2010/09/22/somethings-gotta-give/
