New York Yankees
The Yankees get here with a 77-48 record and have won their last 4 games. The team is averaging 5.03 runs per game. They're batting for .241 AVG, 621 runs scored in 999 hits and 199 home runs, ranking #2 in offense in the league, behind the Los Angeles Dodgers. Aaron Judge leads the team and is batting for .297 with 48 home runs and 105 RBI.
Defensively they are allowing 3.49 runs per game and rank #3 in the league. All-Star Nestor Cortes leads the pitching staff with a 2.68 ERA, 133 strikeouts and 9 wins recorded with the Yanks.
Gerrit Cole (9-6, 3.41 ERA) will be on the mound for the Yankees in the 2nd game of the series. Cole pitched six innings against Toronto on Saturday, giving up four runs on five hits, two walks, and five strikeouts in taking the loss. He has a 5-1 record with an ERA of 2.70 and 74 strikeouts in 9 appearances against the Athletics in his career.
The Athletics get here with a 46-80 record and have lost 3 of their last 4 games. The team is averaging 3.38 runs per game. They're batting for .215 AVG, 420 runs scored in 879 hits and 104 home runs, ranking #29 in offense, the second worst in the MLB behind the Pittsburgh Pirates. Sean Murphy is batting for .253 AVG. Seth Brown leads the team with 49 RBI and 17 home runs.
Defensively are allowing 4.55 runs per game, ranking #23 in the league. Paul Blackburn leads the team with a 4.28 ERA, 89 strikeouts and 7 wins recorded with the A's.
Probable Pitcher: JP Sears (5-0, 1.93 ERA)
Sears will be on the mound in the 2nd game of the series for the Athletics. In a 5-3 victory over the Mariners on Sunday, Sears earned the win after allowing one run over five innings on six hits and one walk. He got three outs. He hasn't pitched against the Yankees in his career.
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of NY Yankees' last 6 games.
NY Yankees are 7-14 SU in their last 21 games.
NY Yankees are 8-2 SU in their last 10 games against Oakland.
Oakland A's are 3-9 SU in their last 12 games at home.
Oakland A's are 11-4 SU in their last 15 games when playing at home against NY Yankees.
Yup, the Yankees are back and they made it clear, destroying the A's 13-4 in the first game of the series. For this game they'll send Gerrit Cole to the mound who struggled in his last start but has dominated the A's in his career. JP Sears will take the mound for the A's who has been insane this season allowing only 3 runs in 26 innings pitched but hasn't faced the Yankees yet. Expect a close game this time as Sears should slow down the Yankees offense. Take the under.
PICK: Under 7 (-110)
