Wednesday night, Jake Odorizzi (10 - 11, 3.84 ERA) takes the hill for the Tampa Bay Rays as they face Chris Capuano (2 -3, 4.46 ERA) and the New York Yankees. Odorizzi will make his 29th start as Capuano makes his 9th start and 37th appearance.
Jake Odorizzi was masterful in his last start but he didn't receive the decision. Odorizzi threw 7.1 innings of scoreless ball and held the opposition to just 3 hits. He struck out 3 batters without issuing a single walk. But without any run support, Odorizzi's start was wasted. Overall, he has given the Rays some quality innings as of late and is 6 -3 in his last 10 outings. Last season, Odorizzi went 0-1-1 with a 3.94 ERA in 4 starts and 3 relief appearances.
Odorizzi got a save in his only appearance against the Yankees in 2013. This season, Odorizzi is 1 - 0 in 2 starts against New York.
Chris Capuano escaped with a no-decision after a rough outing his last time on the hill. Capuano surrendered 4 runs and 6 hits (including 3 home runs) through just 4.1 innings. He walked a batter and struck out 2. Since coming over from the Boston Red Sox, Capuano hasn't produced as much as the Yankees might have hoped for. He is 1 -2 in his 8 appearances as a Yankee. Last season, Capuano started 20 games and made 4 relief appearances for the Los Angeles Dodgers en route to a 4 - 7 record and a 4.26 ERA.
Capuano was lit up in his only start against the Rays in 2013. He didn't get the decision despite allowing 6 runs and 10 hits in 4.1 innings. This season, he is 0 - 0 in 2 appearances against Tampa Bay.
