The New York Yankees and the San Francisco Giants meet in the finale of their three game set in MLB action from Oracle Park on Sunday afternoon.

The New York Yankees will look to complete the sweep after taking game two on Saturday by a final score of 6-4. Gary Sanchez led the Yanks with four RBIs including a home run while Luke Voit and DJ LeMahieu each had an RBI to round out New York’s scoring in the win. Gio Urshela went 3 for 4 with a pair of doubles while Gleyber Torres had a double and Cameron Maybin and Thairo Estrada each had a base hit as well in the victory. J.A. Happ got the win after throwing seven shutout innings, allowing just five hits to improve to 1-2. Aroldis Chapman closed out the game for his 5th save of the season. Domingo German will start game three and is 4-1 with a 1.75 ERA and 28 strikeouts this season. This will be German’s first career start against San Francisco.

The San Francisco Giants will look to salvage a win and avoid the sweep after their defeat in game two on Saturday. Yangervis Solarte went 2 for 4 with a home run and three RBIs while Erik Kratz added a solo homer of his own in the losing effort. Buster Posey went 2 for 4 while Tyler Austin, Brandon Belt, Brandon Crawford and Gerardo Parra each had base hits as well in the loss. Derek Holland took the loss on the mound, falling to 1-4 after allowing six runs on six hits while walking three and striking out six over five innings of work. Dereck Rodriguez will start the finale and is 3-2 with a 3.54 ERA and 22 strikeouts this season. This will be Rodriguez’s first career start against the Yankees.

New York is 7-1 in their last 8 games overall and 4-1 in German’s last 5 road starts while the over is 10-2 in their last 12 game three matchups. San Francisco is 0-7 in Rodriguez’s last 7 home starts and 5-23 in their last 28 game three matchups while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 Sunday games. New York is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings between these two teams.

I’d like to give the Giants a shot at home, but the issue is that Rodriguez has had literally zero success at home dating back to last year, and if we’re being honest, this low of a line with the Yankees is a gift considering how the Yankees have been the much hotter team lately and been the better team in this series. German is also having a solid year so far this season, so I’ll lay the juice with the Yankees on the road to complete the sweep.
