New York Yankees @ Tampa Bay Rays

Scheduled Start Time: 7:10 PM ET

Tropicana Field

(Sports Network) - CC Sabathia will try to win his third straight start on Saturday night when the weekend set between the New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays resumes at Tropicana Field.

Sabathia struggled in his latest outing on Aug. 18 against the Boston Red Sox, allowing seven hits, five walks and six earned runs in just 5 1/3 innings pitched, but he earned the win thanks to ample run support.

Despite the southpaw's two-game winning streak, he is currently in the midst of arguably the worst season of his 13-year career, as he sits with an 11-10 record and an inflated 4.83 ERA.

The Rays have had Sabathia's number so far this season, as the 33-year-old is 1-3 with a 8.31 ERA in four starts against the AL East rivals in 2013.

Tampa Bay will send David Price to the hill. The 2012 AL Cy Young Award winner missed time earlier in the year with a triceps injury, but he's still accumulated a stellar season with a 7-5 record and a 3.29 ERA.

Price was shaky in his last outing, yielding 10 hits and two walks in five innings on Aug. 19 versus the Orioles, but he allowed just two runs and escaped with the victory.

He's now won four straight decisions dating back to July 19.

'David didn't have his best stuff tonight,' Rays outfielder Matt Joyce said of Price following his last start, '(but) he did a great job battling, really giving us a chance to win.'

Despite his strong career ERA at Tropicana Field (2.78), Price is just 1-4 in nine home starts this season.

In the series opener on Friday night, the Rays stopped the Yankees' five-game winning streak with a 7-2 victory thanks in large part to an outstanding performance from their rookie hurler Chris Archer.

Archer (7-5) allowed just four hits, two walks and two earned runs over seven innings of work as he defeated the Yankees for the third time this season.

'He's doing a great job,' Rays manager Joe Maddon said of Archer. 'He's a young man and he's very focused. I want to keep him on this path. He looks good.'

The Rays scored five runs in the first three innings, all of which came via home runs from Jose Lobaton, Evan Longoria and Joyce. Longoria's was his 26th of the season. Ben Zobrist tacked on another long ball in the fifth inning to give the Rays an insurance run.

Hiroki Kuroda (11-9) took the loss. Burdened by the home run ball on the evening, Kuroda surrendered seven earned runs on nine hits over six innings of work.

Brett Gardner collected two hits, scored two runs and stole a base for the away team, while Eduardo Nunez also had two hits.
