The New York Yankees look for a win after winning five of their last eight games. The Yankees have scored 25 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four straight games. The Yankees have won five of their last eight games when scoring more than three runs. Brett Gardner leads New York with 68 hits and 33 RBI while Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira have combined for 89 RBI. The New York Yankees have won four of their last five home games. Michael Pineda takes the hill, and he’s 8-3 with a 3.54 ERA and 87 strikeouts this season. This will be Pineda’s second career game against the Phillies.
The Phillies are 16-45 in their last 61 road games and 0-5 in their last 5 during game 1 of a series. The Yankees are 19-7 in their last 26 home games and 11-4 in Pinedas last 15 starts. The under is 7-2 in the last 9 meetings in New York.
The Phillies have to win a road game eventually, right? Sure, the Yankees should win this game. However, you don't get lines like this very often. I like the shot in the dark with Philly.
