May 21 4:14 PM PT5:14 PM MT6:14 PM CT7:14 PM ET19:14 ET23:14 GMT7:14 4:14 PM MST6:14 PM EST6:44 PM VEN3:14 UAE (+1)6:14 PM CT-Chris Archer fell to 3-3, allowing three runs on six hits and two walks in 6.1 innings, as the Tampa Bay Rays lost to the New York Yankees 3-2 on Sunday. Archer struck out a season-high 12, ending the game with a 3.76 ERA and 1.22 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Brett Gardner's two-run homer in the second inning helped keep Archer at one win over his last seven starts, but he recorded 11 or more strikeouts for the third time in four outings. He's worth inserting into fantasy lineups for that reason alone.
