There’s Still a Lot of MLB to Come, but the Action Is Increasing

MLB Thursday features several matchups as teams try to establish a position in their divisions at this early stage of the season. Here are a few of the best matchups on the agenda today.

Yankees Look To End Tampa’s Home Streak

The AL East-leading New York Yankees travel to St. Petersburg this evening to face the second-place Tampa Bay Rays as they try to extend their home winning streak. The Yankees have the best record in baseball and are now 31-13 after taking two of three games in Baltimore, including a 2-0 victory last night. This is the first meeting of the season between these division rivals.

This week, Tampa Bay swept a two-game series against the Marlins after losing two of three games on the road against the Orioles. They have now won four straight and six of their last eight games at home. However, tonight will be a different ballgame.

The Yankees will get the win to end the Rays’ streak.

Brewers and Cardinals Battle for Top of NL Central

The Milwaukee Brewers are in St. Louis tonight to start a four-game series against the Cardinals. The top two teams in the NL Central Division meet for the second time after splitting a four-game series in April. The Brewers lead the Cardinals by 3.5 games and took the final two games of their previous series against the Padres.

St. Louis split a two-game series with the Blue Jays earlier this week and have won four of their last five games overall, including a sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates on the road. Based on the history between these two, the Cards are in a difficult spot.

Milwaukee gets the win as their bullpen will be the difference tonight.

Blue Jays Travel West to Face Angels

Two teams hoping to move up in their division standings will start a four-game series tonight as the Toronto Blue Jays face the Los Angeles Angels tonight in Anaheim. Toronto must start making up ground soon, as they are 7.5 games behind the Yankees in the NL East. They recently split a pair of games in St. Louis after taking two games from the Cincinnati Reds over the weekend.

The Angels are trying to catch the Houston Astros in the AL West and trail them by two games in the standings. They took two of three games from the A’s this past weekend after being swept in three games by the Texas Rangers on the road.

Toronto will win their second straight game in a close matchup tonight.
