For the Sunday game, the Yankees will be sending out RHP Luis Severino. In his 86.0 innings and 9-1 record this year, Severino has a 2.20 ERA with 102 Ks and 21 BBs.
The Yankees’ leading hitter this season is Aaron Judge, who brought 60 hits, 43 runs, 17 homers and 44 RBI into the weekend. On Saturday, Judge hit a solo homer.
Over on the Mets’ side, they’re going with Seth Lugo on Sunday. Over 39.2 innings and a 1-1 mark this season, Lugo has a 2.04 ERA with 39 Ks and nine walks.
Tops in hitting for the Mets entering the weekend was Asdrubal Cabrera with 66 hits, 30 runs, 10 homers and 34 RBI. On Saturday, Cabrera ripped a two-run homer.
The Yankees are 6-0 in their last six Sunday games and 9-2 in their last 11 in game three of a series. New York is also 4-0 in Severino’s last four road starts and 4-0 in his last four Sunday starts.
Meanwhile, the Mets are 19-40 in their last 59 during game three of a series and 1-4 in their last five Sunday games. New York is also 8-3 in Lugo’s last 11 home starts and 0-5 in his last five starts versus a team with a winning record.
Severino has been the Yankees’ ace all season, and he’s allowed just four earned runs over his last three starts. As for Lugo, he’s been primarily a reliever (and has done well at it), but did go 4.0 innings with three hits and zero earned in a start against the Cubs on May 31. This could be an interesting pitching matchup, but I have to give Severino and the Yankees the edge.
