Yankees, Rays to play twin bill in Bronx

Two doubleheaders on one road trip are hardly ideal for any team, but the Tampa Bay Rays are embracing a chance to possibly freshen up some bullpen arms while getting two chances in the same day to inch closer to the New York Yankees in the AL East race.

Instead of attempting to play through rain and projected thunderstorms at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday, the teams opted for a single-admission doubleheader to conclude their four-game series on Thursday.

The Rays will be playing their fourth doubleheader of the season after experiencing rainouts in Boston, Kansas City and Baltimore. The Rays lost their first doubleheader and then split the next two, most recently Saturday when they took a 2-1 loss and followed with a 12-4 win.
