The New York Yankees look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Yankees have scored 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six straight games. The Yankees have split their last six games when scoring more than three runs. Brett Gardner leads New York with 74 hits and 37 RBI while Alex Rodriguez and Brian McCann have combined for 87 RBI. The New York Yankees have split their last eight home games. Ivan Nova takes the hill, and he was 2-2 with a 8.27 ERA and 12 strikeouts last season. This will be Nova’s first career game against the Phillies.
The Phillies are 2-7 in their last 9 during game 3 of a series and 8-2 in Hamels' last 10 starts vs. a team with a winning record. The Yankees are 6-1 in their last 7 during game 3 of a series and 12-5 in Novas last 17 home starts. The over is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.
I've been backing the Phillies a bit during this stretch, and we've made some serious money during this run. I'd be hesistant to continue but Hamels is on the hill. I'm calling the Philly sweep over the Yanks.
