The Oakland Athletics will visit the New York Yankees to play a 3-game series at the Yankee Stadium. The Athletics won their last series against the Royals while the Yankees tied 2-2 with the Astros in their weekend series.
New York Yankees
The Yankees get here with a 53-20 record and have won 3 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 5 runs per game and allowing 3 runs. Aaron Judge leads the team and is batting for .294 with 28 home runs and 56 RBI.
Nestor Cortes leads the pitching staff with a 2.51 ERA, 85 strikeouts and 6 wins recorded.
Probable Pitcher: Jordan Montgomery (3-1, 2.97 ERA)
Montgomery will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for the Yankees. On Wednesday against Tampa Bay, Montgomery pitched six innings and gave up four runs on nine hits, two walks, and two strikeouts. He didn't factor in the decision. He faced the A's twice last season and allowed only 1 run across 11.1 innings pitched.
The Athletics get here with a 25-49 record and have lost 4 of their last 6 games. The team is averaging 3.15 runs per game and allowing 4.6 runs. Tony Kemp is batting for .227 AVG. Seth Brown leads with 36 RBI and 10 home runs.
Paul Blackburn leads the team with a 2.97 ERA, 55 strikeouts and 6 wins recorded with the A's.
Probable Pitcher: Paul Blackburn (6-3, 2.97 ERA)
Blackburny will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for the A's. On Wednesday against the Mariners, Blackburn suffered the loss In four and a half innings, he gave up seven runs on ten hits, two walks, and four strikeouts. He has not allowed any runs on 5 hits with 1 walk and a strikeout in 5 innings versus the Yankees in his career.
Oakland are 3-6 SU in their last 9 games against NY Yankees.
Oakland are 4-8 SU in their last 12 games on the road.
The total has gone UNDER in 8 of NY Yankees' last 11 games against Oakland.
NY Yankees are 16-2 SU in their last 18 games at home.
The Athletics finally won a series again since May 25th but they're still one of the worst teams in the league and are going against the best team in the MLB. They'll try to slow down the powerful Yanks offense by sending Paul Blackburn to the mound who dominated them through 5 innings last season. The Yankees offense struggled in their last series against the Astros as they didn't hit for the entire game 3. Montgomery was pounded with 4 runs by the Rays in his last start but dominated the A's last season. With that being said I think this should be a low scoring game and and even though I think the Yankees win, there's no value in that play so I'll take the under.
PICK: Under 8.5 (-110)
