EASTERN DIVISION HEATS UP AS RAYS TAKE YANKS
Tue, 03 Aug 2010 09:14 PM EDT

The Eastern Division has seen some fierce competition between the Rays and the Yankees. In their most recent game, the Rays walked away victorious after a 3-0 shutout. While they are enjoying the win, the Yankees are planning their revenge. The injury-depleted team has seen some rough times since the death of their owner in recent weeks. The Rays capitalized on the situation, and took them to the cleaners.

In what has proven to be a sore subject for Yankees fans, Alexander Rodriguez still hasn’t hit his 600th home run. Ever since getting hit in the hand he has been timid at the plate. Perhaps he is waiting for an unannounced injury to heal? On Sunday, it was yet another blown opportunity. None of the Yankees powerful hitters could get a piece of what James Shields was delivering.

Shields outpitched the legendary CC Sabathia, in what many are calling his best game of the season; he had a great time at the mound, leading his team to an efficient, quick victory. The Rays are looking better and better, and if they can continue the trend, with some really hard work, they will be able to overtake the Yankees as the Division leaders.

Shields started strong, and his team picked up right behind him. He allowed four hits, one walk, and struck out 11 of the best hitters in the game in a seven-inning showing. Carl Crawford and Kelly Shoppach supported Shields from the plate. They drove in several runs for the Rays, and they took two of three games during a matchup between the top two teams with the best records in baseball.

The Yankees will look to redeem themselves, not many teams can hold them to a shutout, and if it was going to be anyone it would have been the Rays. Be sure and follow up on all the best sports betting data at www.scoresandodds.com.
