The New York Yankees send Gerrit Cole to the mound in search of another win over the Tampa Bay Rays.

The New York Yankees beat the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday behind a great outing from Jordan Montgomery, and timely home runs from Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez helped.

The Bronx Bombers will send ace Gerrit Cole to the mound on Wednesday, and hope to take a series at Tropicana Field for the first time since May 2019. However, they still sit two games back of the Red Sox while also dealing with some COVID-19-related issues.
