The New York Yankees and the Arizona Diamondbacks meet in game one of a mini two-game interleague set from Chase Field on Tuesday night.
The New York Yankees will look to keep the momentum going after sweeping the San Francisco Giants following an 11-5 win in the series finale on Sunday. Gary Sanchez led the Yankees with a home run and three TBIs while Gleyber Torres, Luke Voit and Tyler Wade each had two RBIS with Voit hitting 3 for 4 at the dish while Torres went 2 for 4 with a double. Cameron Maybin added an RBI of his own while Gio Urshela and Thairo Estrada each had two hits. DJ LeMahieu and Mike Tauchman each had a base hit as well to cap off New York’s offense in the winning effort. Domingo German got the win to improve to 5-1 on the year after allowing four runs on five hits while striking out four over six innings of work. CC Sabathia will start the opener and is 1-0 with a 2.40 ERA and 11 strikeouts this season. In his career, Sabathia is 2-0 with a 2.30 ERA and 11 strikeouts against Arizona.
The Arizona Diamondbacks will look to rebound after losing their series with the Cubs, dropping the finale in 15 innings by a final score of 6-5 on Sunday. Eduardo Escobar led the D-Backs with a pair of home runs and three RBIs while Caleb Joseph had a pair of RBIs to round out Arizona’s scoring in the loss. Ketel Marte went 2 for 6 with a triple while Christian Walker and Carson Kelly each had a double with Walker going 2 for 5 at the dish. David Peralta, Wilmer Flores, Nick Ahmed and Jarrod Dyson each had a base hit as well in the losing effort for Arizona. Luke Weaver went 4.1 innings, allowing three runs on six hits while striking out five, not factoring in the decision. Matt Andriese ended up with the loss to fall to 3-2 this season. Zack Greinke will start game one and is 4-1 with a 3.72 ERA and 39 strikeouts this season. In his career, Greinke is 3-4 with a 5.68 ERA and 41 strikeouts against the Yankees.
New York is 9-1 in their last 10 games overall and 5-1 in Sabathia’s last 6 starts while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 interleague games. Arizona is 5-0 in Greinke’s last 5 starts and 10-4 in their last 14 games overall while the over is 4-0-2 in their last 6 games against a left-handed starter. The over is 4-1-1 in the last 6 meetings between these two teams in Arizona.
Getting New York at plus money is tempting as tempting can be, but the Yankees are still banged up and sweeps of the San Francisco Giants and Kansas City Royals and a series win over the Angels doesn’t do that much for me. Arizona hasn’t had the best run of luck this season, but the offense is keeping them in games and after a rough opening day, the D-Backs have won Greinke’s last 5 starts, which has seen Arizona’s ace go 4-0 with a 2.20 ERA over that span, including 13 straight scoreless innings up to this point. I just think the Diamondbacks with Greinke on the mound at a reasonable price is too good to pass on, so I’ll lay the juice with Arizona in this one.
