Hey everyone, last night the New York Yankees absolutely brought their A-game with some killer pitching to edge out a win against the Tampa Bay Rays. It all went down in St. Petersburg, Florida, and let me tell you, it was one for the books. They’re revving up for game two of this three-part showdown, and all eyes are on Nestor Cortes to keep that win streak alive.

Game Recap: Yankees’ Pitching On Fire

So, Clarke Schmidt and his squad were on fire Friday, delivering a shutout that kept everyone on the edge of their seats. Schmidt, the man of the hour, tied a major league record with his 33rd consecutive start letting up three runs or fewer. Yankees’ manager Aaron Boone couldn’t stop raving about him, saying, “He wants the ball. He’s all about that confidence and thrives on the thrill of the game.”

At the Plate: Rizzo’s Big Night

On the offensive side, Anthony Rizzo was the hero we needed, knocking in an RBI single and blasting a homer—his seventh this season. His stellar performance bumped the Yanks to a sweet 7-2 record for May, maintaining their dominance in the AL East. Although stars like Juan Soto, Aaron Judge, and Alex Verdugo didn’t shine as bright, going 0-for-10, Rizzo’s prowess made sure it didn’t matter much.


Rays’ Bold Moves Not Enough

The Rays tried to shake things up with some daring base running, but it just wasn’t their night. They stumbled with a couple of failed steal attempts and got picked off once. Rays’ manager Kevin Cash took it all in stride, giving props to Schmidt for his command over the game, noting, “His cutter and curveball were on point, keeping our guys guessing.”

Looking Ahead: Saturday’s Pitching Face-off

Now, turning our attention to Saturday’s game, the Yanks are banking on lefty Nestor Cortes to bring home a win. Despite a rough spell, he’s coming off a solid game against the Tigers where he held them to just two runs over 6 1/3 innings. On the flip side, the Rays have Zack Littell stepping up, hoping to channel his early-season mojo and score another win against the Yanks like last August.

It’s all set to be another intense game as both teams gear up to throw down. Cortes and Littell are ready to dominate the mound and lead their teams in what’s shaping up to be a nail-biting series continuation. Stay tuned, because it’s going to be epic!
