After a wild series at Camden Yards, the Yankees headed home to take on another division rival in the Tampa Bay Rays.

The Rays took the first game of the series 5-1 yesterday, and now they will try to claim the series tonight with Zach Eflin on the bump. The offense has sparked to life, scoring four-plus runs in five of their most recent games. This marks a significant improvement compared to the offensive performance observed in the past month and beyond.

Tampa has been dangerous all season, but their pitching has been propping them up; with a hot offense, this team is unbeatable. They are a game and a half out of the Orioles for the division lead. If they continue to beat up on the Yankees as they did last night, they should be in first place by the end of the week.

Tampa Bay -1.5 (+146)
FD: Race to 3 Runs: Tampa (-103)

Brewers @ Nationals

The Brewers aim to halt their four-game losing streak as they play their second game today in Washington.

In his 21st start of the season, Peralta takes the mound for the Brewers. So far, he has a record of 6-8 with a 4.38 ERA, and he has managed to strike out 131 batters in 109 2/3 innings pitched. The team is hoping for a strong performance from him to turn their luck around and put an end to their skid.

Christian Yelich has been a standout player for Milwaukee this season, leading the team in multiple categories. With an impressive batting average of .290, he has consistently delivered clutch hits, amassing a total of 60 runs batted in. As a critical offensive force, he has played a pivotal role in the team’s success and remains a crucial asset as they continue their campaign for October baseball.

Look for Yelich to open things up and bust Milwaukee out of this slump.

Milwaukee -1.5 (+105)
Christian Yelich 2+ Hits (+175)
