The Athletics have won five straight when scoring more than three runs. The Oakland Athletics have lost five of their last eight home games.

Jesse Chavez takes the hill, and he’s 1-5 with a 2.44 ERA and 45 strikeouts this season. Chavez is 3-0 with a 2.29 ERA and 17 strikeouts in his career against the Yankees.
The Yankees are 52-22 in their last 74 during game 4 of a series and 6-2 in Warrens last 8 starts. The Athletics are 2-7 in their last 9 during game 4 of a series and 0-4 in Chavezs last 4 starts. The Yankees are 2-11 in the last 13 meetings in Oakland.
I have a hard time reading either of these teams. However, the Yankees are the better team and Warren has been pretty decent this season. I like New York and the plus money.
