Tonight’s pitching matchup will have veteran right hander Freddy Garcia on the hill as he will face lefty starter Matt Moore for the Tampa Bay Rays. Garcia gets a spot start on Monday as he replaces left hander Andy Pettite who will be out for six weeks following a broken ankle suffered on June 27th. After a poor start to the season Freddy Garcia had been demoted to the bullpen where he was able to turn around his performance and keep his job in Major League Baseball. Matt Moore enters play with an ERA of 4.19 in 88 innings pitched in the 2012 season. His last outing on Wednesday Moore gave up four earned runs and ten hits to Kansas City. The Yankees have been hot as the club has won seven of their past nine games. After dropping the first two games to the Chicago White Sox the Yankees rallied to take the final two games. Tampa Bay has played poorly as the club has dropped six of their past seven games. The Rays have struggled at the plate as the club has pushed across just 2.4 runs per game in that span.
