Corey Kluber takes the mound for the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday, and he's hoping to get some run support for a change. It's a rare Friday afternoon game for the Rays, as they take on the Toronto Blue Jays on Canada Day.
Kluber pitched 5.1 innings, giving up two runs on five hits while striking out six in Saturday's win over the Pirates. He did not factor into the decision. Kluber was effective in this one, tossing 47 of his 63 pitches for strikes. Diego Castillo took him deep for a solo shot in the top of the third and Bryan Reynolds singled in another run later in the frame, accounting for all the damage against him. Kluber has now surrendered three or fewer runs in eight straight outings, producing a 2.70 ERA over those contests. The 36-year-old now owns a 3.45 ERA and 1.08 WHIP with 66 strikeouts over 73 frames through 14 starts in 2022.
BALTIMORE — The Rays are looking to put a good finish on a rough road trip this afternoon when they face the Orioles, first pitch at 1:35 p.m. Veteran Corey Kluber will be on the mound for the Rays, having pitched well for most of the season but not here at Camden Yards. On a hot May 22, Kluber lasted just three innings, throwing 73 pitches while allowing two runs with five hits and two walks.
Kluber (3-4) allowed two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out six in six innings to take the loss during Sunday's game against the Orioles. Kluber posted a second consecutive quality start Sunday, but he's been forced to settle for losses in his last two outings. The 36-year-old gave up eight runs during the Rays' loss to the Angels on May 10 but has settled down since then and hasn't allowed more than three runs in any of his last seven outings. Across those seven starts, he's posted a 2.61 ERA and 0.92 WHIP in 38 innings. Kluber tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Pirates on Saturday.
The Yankees started arguably their most difficult stretch yet of the season on Tuesday, with nine straight games against the Rays and Blue Jays. They couldn’t have asked for a much better opener, as Gerrit Cole rebounded from one of the worst starts of his career with a gem and the Yankees took advantage of some mistakes by Tampa Bay in a 2-0 victory in The Bronx. It was the Yankees’ fifth straight win and 11th in their last 12 games, as they improved their MLB-best record to 45-16. Thanks to Toronto’s loss to the Orioles, the Yankees are now a season-high nine...

Later this week, they’re going to head north of the border once again to take on the currently second-place Blue Jays. However before that, they’re hosting the team that’s tormented them in recent years for three games in Yankee Stadium.

Despite being 10 games over .500, the Tampa Bay Rays are still in third place in a very competitive AL East. They are neck and neck with the Toronto Blue Jays for second place but both teams are way behind the New York Yankees in first place. And for good...
The New York Yankees are on the path to doing something special this season. With 44 wins in their first 60 games, the Yanks are currently on pace for an MLB record 119 wins. Of course, it’ll be incredibly difficult to keep this pace as we get to the Dog Days of Summer and then into the stretch run, but there’s nothing flukey about the Bombers’ record right now. According to MLB’s expected Win-Loss record (which is based off runs scored/allowed), the Yankees fully deserve their 44-16 record. The Yanks will turn to Gerrit Cole — fresh off the worst start...

The veteran has had two strong outings against the Yankees this season, allowing just one earned run in 12 innings. Over his last six starts the 36-year-old has a 2.53 ERA and a 27:4 K:BB in 32 innings.
