The Miami Marlins and New York Yankees end their four-game series Thursday night.
The Miami Marlins look for a win after winning five of their last seven games. The Marlins have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Marlins have won four straight games when scoring more than three runs. Dee Gordon leads Miami with 96 hits and 17 RBI while Adeiny Hechavarria and Giancarlo Stanton have combined for 90 RBI. The Miami Marlins have lost four straight road games. Mat Latos gets the nod, and he’s 2-4 with a 5.44 ERA and 47 strikeouts this season. This will be Latos’ first career game against the Yankees.

The New York Yankees need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Yankees have scored five runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 10 games. The Yankees have won five of their last seven games when scoring more than three runs. Chase Headley leads New York with 60 hits and 24 RBI while Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira have combined for 81 RBI. The New York Yankees have won five of their last six home games. CC Sabathia takes the hill, and he’s 3-7 with a 5.38 ERA and 67 strikeouts this season. This will be Sabathia’s second career game against the Marlins.
The Marlins are 5-16 in their last 21 during game 4 of a series and 4-1 in their last 5 vs. a team with a winning record. The Yankees are 52-23 in their last 75 during game 4 of a series and 5-11 in Sabathias last 16 starts. The Marlins are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
Betting against CC has made us a ton of money this season. Latos looked sharp in his last outing coming off the DL, and the Marlins overall have been the better team this series. I like the plus money here.
