The New York Yankees go for a second straight win over the Rays after a gritty win on Tuesday night.

Aaron Judge singled in his return from COVID-19 and the New York Yankees did the rest on Tuesday. The 4-3 victory wasn’t pretty, but Aroldis Chapman shutting the door by striking out Nelson Cruz boosted everyone’s confidence. On Wednesday, the Yankees welcome back another from the COVID-19 list as Nestor Cortes returns to the mound.

The Red Sox and Blue Jays were rained out, but losing meant the Rays dropped to two games behind Boston in the AL East. The Yankees, meanwhile, remain in third place and nine games back.
