ESPN will host Tuesday’s matchup between the New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays with first pitch set for 7:00 p.m. ET. The game will take place at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida, and will air on YES in the Yankees market and on Bally Sports SUN in the Rays market. The Yankees have Jordan Montgomery (1-1, 4.41 ERA) on the mound while the Rays will start Luis Patino (1-0, 1.17 ERA).
If you aren’t around a TV to check out this primetime MLB matchup, you can stream the game via WatchESPN or the ESPN app. But keep in mind that you need a cable-login subscription. If you don’t have a cable login to access ESPN for a live stream, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the game.
The Yankees enters Tuesday having won five straight series to get back to a respectable 18-16. The bats are coming alive a bit and Giancarlo Stanton is the engine driving that force. In 7 games in May, Stanton is batting .370 with 3 HRs and 9 RBI. With the off-day on Monday, the Yanks were also able to get Aaron Judge a bit of rest after sitting Sunday. He’s dealing with some nagging injuries, which isn’t anything new.
The Rays had won five in a row before dropping two of three in their series over the weekend to the Oakland Athletics. The 21-year-old Patino has pitched well as an opener for Tampa, allowing just one ER (one HR) over 7.2 IP this season. He’ll have a tough time having to deal with Stanton and Judge in the first inning.
