After losing two out of three from Baltimore, the Yankees find themselves in Tampa to take on the Rays. David Phelps gets the start for New York, and will hope to continue his string of recent success. Against Toronto in his last start, Phelps went seven innings giving up six hits, one run and registering eight strikeouts; seven innings represents the longest outing of his career. Overall in his last three starts – 19.2 innings – Phelps has given up just four earned runs, lowering his ERA from 5.56 to 3.83. Opposing him tonight will be Roberto Hernandez, formerly known as Fausto Carmona.
