The Yankees will look to carry the momentum from Gio Urshela's walk-off single Friday night as they aim to stay atop the AL East over the Rays on Saturday at 1:05 p.m.
The Yankees are in sole possession of first place in the AL East for the first time since June 26 of last year. ... Urshela's hot bat has him bumped up to the sixth spot after going 3-for-4 with the game-winning hit on Friday. He enters Saturday's game hitting a slash line of .347/.398.500 with two home runs and 16 RBI in 98 plate appearances this season and is hitting .350 with 10 RBI in the month of May. ... Gary Sanchez will get a half-day with the day game after a night game but stays in as a DH with impressive numbers against Snell. Sanchez is 4-for-11 with three of those hits being home runs against the reigning AL Cy Young Award winner.
