I'm playing on TAMPA. The Yankees grabbed yesterday's opener. With southpaw Springs on the mound, I expect the Rays to return the favor this evening. Springs has been superb, since moving to the starting rotation. Manager Kevin Cash noted this of Springs: "We just like his stuff, like the way it's playing, like the way he's bouncing back. Definitely the changeup is kind of the equalizer to the righties, and being left-handed helps against the lefties." Indeed, Spring has a stellar 2.12 ERA across four starts. He's allowed four runs and 11 hits (.186 batting average) in 17 innings, striking out 16 strikeouts along the way. In two home starts, Springs' ERA dips all the way down to 1.23. TB won those games by scores of 3-0 and 2-1. Note that Springs didn't walk a batter in either start. Taillon has enjoyed success against the Rays, when facing them at home. However, his lone start here at Tampa resulted in a 9-1 loss last May. After giving up four runs in 4 2/3 innings in that game, Taillon commented: "...The hits in big situations tell you that I didn’t make the right pitch at the right time..." I say the Rays bounce back.
