Having lost to the Yankees on back-to-back nights in extra innings, their last six games and nine of the 11 they’ve played this season, the Rays will turn to Blake Snell this afternoon to try to stop their latest skid.

Snell put his own rough stretch behind him in his last outing, and the Rays are hoping he can lead them to a victory today as they dropped to 8 1/2 games behind the AL East leaders.

The Yankees are starting veteran lefty CC Sabathia, who has had his way, and had his say, about the Rays of late as well.

Here is the Rays lineup:
