The New York Yankees look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Yankees have scored eight runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Yankees have won five straight when scoring more than three runs. Chase Headley leads New York with 142 hits and 61 RBI while Brett Gardner and Didi Gregorius have combined for 117 RBI. The New York Yankees have lost five of their last six home games. Michael Pineda takes the hill, and he’s 11-8 with a 4.10 ERA and 141 strikeouts this season. Pineda is 0-2 with a 2.77 ERA and 11 strikeouts in his career against the White Sox.
The White Sox are 6-2 in their last 8 Thursday games and 0-5 in Sales last 5 starts. The Yankees are 23-10 in their last 33 Thursday games and 1-5 in their last 6 home games. The White Sox are 7-23 in the last 30 meetings in New York and 1-7 in the last 8 meetings overall.
The White Sox haven't had much success with Sale on the mound lately, and the Yankees are in must-win situations if they have any shot of winnin the AL East. I like New York to bounce back at home for the cheap price.
