Prediction:

Although the New York Yankees come into this game with an undefeated record, we predict the Arizona Diamondbacks to emerge victorious. Here's why:

Firstly, the Diamondbacks have shown their strength at home, boasting a 3-1 record with convincing wins. Playing in front of their home crowd at Chase Field, they have the added advantage of familiarity and support.

Secondly, Zac Gallen's exceptional pitching performance in his last outing indicates that he is in top form and capable of shutting down the Yankees' potent lineup. With his command and ability to keep hitters off balance, Gallen can dictate the pace of the game and neutralize the Yankees' offensive threats.

Lastly, the Diamondbacks' batting lineup, led by Lourdes Gurriel Jr., has been red-hot, displaying power and consistency at the plate. Facing Nestor Cortes, who has struggled in his recent start, the Diamondbacks' hitters have an opportunity to capitalize on any weaknesses and generate run support for Gallen.

Considering these factors, we expect the Diamondbacks to continue their strong start to the season and hand the Yankees their first loss of the year.
