The American League Division Series between the New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays is tied at one game apiece after the Rays' 7-5 win in Game 2 on Tuesday night.
Now, the AL East rivals find themselves in what amounts to a best-of-three with a spot in the AL Championship Series on the line. After the Rays served as the "home" team in the first two games of the series, the two sides switch – with the Yankees playing the role in Games 3 and 4 at Petco Park in San Diego.
Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton hit two home runs in Game 2 and has homered in all four of his team's postseason games. Stanton is now one of only 10 players in history to homer in four consecutive postseason games.

Right-hander Charlie Morton (2-2, 4.74 ERA) takes the mound for the Rays, making his first start of the postseason. Morton has a 1.95 ERA in his last 27⅔ postseason innings, dating back to the five scoreless innings he tossed in Game 7 of the 2017 ALCS against the Yankees, as a member of the Houston Astros.
The Yankees turn to Masahiro Tanaka (3-3, 3.56 ERA), looking to bounce back from a rough outing (six runs in four innings) in Game 2 of the wild-card series against the Indians. Tanaka has a 2.70 ERA in 50 career postseason innings.
