This is an exciting time for the Yankees. They've won six in a row and have a chance to sweep away the division rival Rays. They've walked off twice in the past three games, and they just made another win-now move this morning. It's all happening.
Jordan Montgomery will be tasked with making it seven straight. He'll square off with Jacob Faria, making this a matchup between perhaps the two best rookie starters in the AL. Montgomery owns an 89 ERA- and FIP- across 109 innings this year, leading all AL rookie pitchers with 1.9 fWAR. Faria, a left-hander, ranks second to Montgomery, and has posted a 63 ERA- and 85 FIP- in 59 innings this season.
The game starts at 1:05 EST and can be seen on the YES Network.
