On Saturday night 25 year old Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Chris Archer beat the Yankees for the 4th time in his young career as he was backed by a whole lot of offense as Tampa punished the Yankees last night 16-1. After being called up to the big leagues last season on June 1st Archer led all American League rookies in ERA, opponents average (.226) and a string of other categories. In his brief Major League career he is 4-0 against the Yankees and he is one of the few African-American pitchers in the game, something he is very conscious of and opinionated about. I spoke with him and you can listen to it right here..

Chris Archer is one of the rising stars on the pitching mound in Major League Baseball.
