Tampa Bay Rays vs. New York Yankees

The Rays are looking to extend their latest winning streak and keep the pressure on the fading Yankees in a 7:10 game. RHP Alex Cobb will be on the mound for the Rays, looking to do better than his last start, and the Yankees will counter with Freddy Garcia.

The Rays have won three straight, the last two in Toronto and then Monday's series opener with the Yankees. 3B Evan Longoria left Monday's game after seven innings, but said he will be back in the lineup tonight. The Yankees, who led the AL East by 10 games on July 18, now lead only by one over the Orioles and 2 1/2 over the Rays.
