LHP CC Sabathia vs. RHP James Shields (his sudden surge in K/9 has hidden the rise in his H/9 and his HR/9, for now)
The Rays are on a hot streak right now, having won 8 of their 10 games since dropping 2 of 3 to the Yankees.
Of course, the Yanks aren't doing too poorly themselves, having gone 9-4 since the All Star Break.
The Rays are hoping some major reinforcement arrives this weekend, while the Yankees are looking to tweak the bench/pen.
August is nearly here, and the pennant race starts in earnest tonight.
