Leading the way for the Marlins coming into this set was Derek Dietrich with 19 hits, seven runs and four RBI. In the Monday game, Dietrich went 0-for-5 while Starlin Castro went 0-for-3.
Over on the Yankees’ side, they’re going with RHP Masahiro Tanaka on Tuesday. In his 17.1 innings and 2-1 record this year, Tanaka has a 5.19 ERA with 18 Ks and two walks.
Coming into this series, Aaron Judge was the Yankees’ top hitter with 18 hits, 13 runs and nine RBI, while Brett Gardner and Didi Gregorious had 14 hits apiece. On Monday, Gregorious crushed two homers and provided three RBI with three runs.
The Marlins are 1-6 in their last seven Tuesday games and 0-4 in their last four in game two of a series. The over is 15-6-2 in Miami’s last 23 Tuesday games and Miami is 5-17 in their last 22 road games.
Meanwhile, the Yankees are 5-1 in their last six Tuesday games and 8-2 in their last 10 in game two of a series. New York is also 4-0 in Tanaka’s last four starts in game two of a series and 10-4 in his last 14 starts.
Tanaka ran into some trouble during his last start against the pesky Red Sox, allowing six earned on seven hits—but he still got the win due to a nice offensive night by his teammates. As for Garcia, he’s looked pretty solid so far and it will be interesting to see how he fares against this Yankees lineup. The Yanks should win this game handily but the under looks somewhat attractive as well.
