Series Preview: Tampa Bay Rays at New York Yankees

ST. PETERSBURG, FL - MAY 16: Shortstop Derek Jeter #2 of the New York Yankees applies the tag to Ben Zobrist #18 of the Tampa Bay Rays as he attempts to steal second during the game at Tropicana Field on May 16, 2011 in St. Petersburg, Florida. (Photo by J. Meric/Getty Images)

I don't think any of us need reminders on what is at stake in this series. The Rays are currently four games out of first place in the AL East, and anything less than a split of this four-game series would give the Rays a huge hole to climb out of in the second half of the season.

Oh, and that Derek Jeter guy is getting close to a pretty impressive career accomplishment. Which Rays pitcher is going to enter the history books as a trivia question?

Thursday, 7:05pm: Jeff Niemann (4.36 FIP) vs. Bartolo Colon (3.26 FIP)
Friday, 7:05pm: Jeremy Hellickson (4.30 FIP) vs. Freddy Garcia (3.97 FIP)
Saturday, 1:05pm: David Price (2.74 FIP) vs. A.J. Burnett (4.47 FIP)
Sunday, 1:05pm: James Shields (3.07 FIP) vs. CC Sabathia (2.57 FIP)
