NEW YORK
Well there is a blue sky above Yankee Stadium this afternoon as the Rays and Yankees prepare for the final game of this three-game set.

It’s David Price vs. CC Sabathia in a matchup of two top lefties.

At 5-1, Price is tied with teammate James Shields and Jared Weaver of the Angels for the most wins in the American League, while Sabathia is a perfect 4-0.

Price is 3-0 in five career starts against Sabathia and is 5-2 with a 3.96 ERA in 15 career appearances (14 starts) against the Yankees.

Sabathia is 9-7 in 25 career starts against the Rays, including 6-2 at Yankee Stadium.

No word yet on Matt Joyce’s left ankle or the status of Jeff Keppinger and Desmond Jennings.

Keppinger missed Wednesday’s win after being placed on the restricted list to attend to a personal matter.

Joyce, who twisted his left ankle in the ninth Wednesday while hitting the game-winning home run, probably won’t play tonight since Sabathia is left-handed.

Keppinger is 8-for-17 for his career against Sabathia, so if he’s able to rejoin the team today, he will be in the lineup.

Jennings pinch-hit last night, so there is a good chance he will play tonight, especially since he gives the Rays another right-handed bay against Sabathia.

Lineups to come.
