The Yanks have been great all season, but they’ve found another gear in June, losing just one game this month. Not only are they 12-1 in 13 June games, but they’ve also recorded four shutouts, which gives them 10 on the season. The Yankees lead the majors in ERA and are the only team under 3.00 in that category.  

It’s not just their pitching; their offense is also the league’s best in OPS. That’s due in large part to their league-leading home run total, as they became the first team to reach 100 dingers on Wednesday night against these Rays.

Aaron Judge, who hit the 100th home run of the season for the Yanks, has been responsible for a quarter of the team’s round-trippers, sending 25 balls into the seats this season.

The Yankees have four hitters with at least 10 homers this season (Judge, Anthony Rizzo, Giancarlo Stanton and Gleyber Torres) and you can bet any of them to go yard today. Just head over to Caesars Sportsbook and remember to use promo code VIMAXSPORT15 for a $1,500 risk-free bet right now!

Luis Severino, listed as the Yankees 5th starter, will get the ball today. Severino is one of four New York starters who has an ERA under 3.00 (only ace Gerrit Cole is above that mark at 3.33). What a luxury it is to have a fifth starter who enters the day with a 4-1 record, 2.80 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 71 strikeouts in 61 innings pitched.

In two June starts, Severino has thrown 13 innings and allowed only one run. He also struck out 10 batters in each of those outings. The one issue he has faced this season is with the longball; Severino has surrendered eight homers this season in his 11 starts.

Only two players on the Rays roster have homered off Severino, first baseman Ji-Man Choi and shortstop Taylor Walls, who both homered last time the team faced him. Choi has reached base in five of his eight career plate appearances against the New York righty.

Severino has been great against the Rays in his career with an 8-3 record, 3.33 ERA and 94 strikeouts in 73 innings. But one of those losses came a couple weeks ago, as the Rays defeated the Yanks 4-2. Severino allowed just four baserunners, but they all scored – including two allowed by the bullpen after he had left the game in the seventh inning.

That loss came as part of a four-game series split between the two squads in late May. Since then, the Yankees have gone 13-1. The Rays, meanwhile, are 7-8 over the same stretch.
