Prediction:

For this matchup, we're predicting a victory for the New York Yankees on the money line (ML). Here's why:

Luis Gil has been a consistent and reliable starter for the Yankees, with a 9-4 record and a 3.41 ERA. His strong pitching performances give the Yankees a significant advantage on the mound, especially against Kutter Crawford, who has shown inconsistency at times.

The Yankees have a powerful lineup led by Aaron Judge, who has been a dominant force at the plate. Judge's ability to hit for power and average makes him a constant threat to opposing pitchers.

Given the Yankees' overall performance and Gil's stability on the mound, we expect the Yankees to secure a win.

Pick: New York Yankees ML
