The San Diego Padres look to sweep the New York Yankees early Sunday afternoon.
The New York Yankees could use a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Yankees have allowed 10 runs in their last three games and seven or more runs in five of their last seven games. The New York Yankees have an ERA of 4.43 and have lost six of their last eight games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Didi Gregorius leads New York with 79 hits, Carlos Beltran has 53 RBI and Starlin Castro has 10 home runs. Chad Green gets the ball, and he’s 0-1 with a 7.20 ERA and six strikeouts this season. This will be Green’s first career game against the Padres.

The San Diego Padres look to keep rolling after winning eight of their last 12 games. The Padres have scored 15 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in 10 of their last 14 games. The San Diego Padres offense has caught fire lately, and they’ve won six of their last eight games when scoring more than three runs. Wil Myers leads San Diego with 87 hits, Matt Kemp has 54 RBI and Melvin Upton Jr. has 13 home runs. Andrew Cashner takes the hill, and he’s 3-5 with a 4.75 ERA and 36 strikeouts this season. This will be Cashner’s second career game against the Yankees.
The Yankees are 0-4 in their last 4 Sunday games and 19-9 in their last 28 vs. a team with a losing record. The Padres are 17-38 in their last 55 Sunday games and 4-1 in Cashners last 5 home starts.
The Padres are playing some of their best ball at the moment and the confidence has to be even higher after winning Saturday night on a walkoff homerun. I have little confidence in the Yankees, as they struggle to put runs on the board. Give me the home team for the sweep and the even money.
