The New York Yankees continue to lead the AL East but they lost on Friday for the second day in a row in Oakland. Brian McCann hit a home run and Alex Rodriguez and Carlos Beltran each had hits as the Yankees scored two runs on six hits. Starting pitcher Chris Capuano allowed six hits and four runs, three earned, while striking out four over 5.1 innings to take the loss and fall to 0-3 for the season. For Saturday’s game the Yankees start Nathan Eovaldi who has allowed 65 hits and 25 earned runs while striking out 40 over 52.2 innings for a 4-1 record and a 4.27 ERA.
Oakland is 18-7 against the AL East, 7-16 in their last 23 games, and 1-4 in Hahn’s last five home starts. New York is 4-12 in their last 16 games, 1-5 as a road underdog, and 5-2 in Eovaldi’s last seven starts. New York is 2-10 in the last 12 meetings of these two.
I don’t like the way the Yankees are playing but two wins doesn’t make Oakland a powerhouse so I see the Yankees getting as win here.
