The MLB is put up for Thursday matches on the plank with a total of twenty five night. One of the matchups on the board will probably be involving the Oakland Athletics and the New York Yankees. Both of these teams are late in the summer, which should raise the seriousness of the game. This game will start on August 22.
New York has put a listing of 83-45 for this stage in the summer, which has them. The Yankees have a nine-game lead about the second-place Tampa Bay Rays. New York has dropped three games in a row, but have won 16 of their last 22. The Yankees will look to end this losing streak that is short with a road victory to close this series.
Second place has been made by the Athletics . Oakland is just seven games. The A’s have won six of their past seven games and will look to earn yet another tough win against the conference-leading Yankees on Thursday night.
The Yankees have earned the top playoff spot in their summit to this stage in the season, while Oakland and Tampa Bay along with the Cleveland Indians are currently fighting it out for a wild card spot. The A’s will look to pull off an unlikely sweep together using another win at home. The Yankees on the other hand, will appear to avoid dropping four consecutive games.
The first game of this show was hosted by Oakland on August 20. New York got started early with a home however Mark Canha and Matt Olson reacted with homers of their own in the bottom of the first. Homer Bailey allowed 1 run on seven hits as the A’s pulled away with a 6-2 triumph to open up the series.
The next game of the series was another one. The Yankees jumped out to another early lead, however, Marcus Semien and Khris Davis equally had two-run homers to give Oakland the back. Stephen Piscotty set the game using a home run at the bottom of the sixth. Mike Fiers completed the match as he allowed two runs to give the A’s a 6-4 win.
Oakland has been in a position to make wins at the first two matches of this series. The A’s have gotten the better of them at the first two matches, although the Yankees are the better team overall this season. I don’t believe that New York can have swept inside this show, which gives a fantastic amount of value on these.
The Yankees are directed by D.J. LeMahieu this season. LeMahieu has earned 157 hits, 21 home runs, 86 RBI’s and an OPS of all .924. Gleyber Torres has put up 122 hits, 29 home runs and 73 RBI’s. Gio Urshela has 18 homers, strikes and 66 RBI’s. Gary Sanchez includes 78 strikes with 28 home runs and 66 RBI’s. Didi, Aaron Judge, Mike Tauchman and brett Gardner Gregorius all have double-digit house runs too.
Oakland has witnessed a excellent season. Chapman has put up 119 hits, 29 homers and 70 RBI’s. Marcus Semien includes 22 home runs 140 hits and 61 RBI’s this year as well. Matt Olson has got 91 hits, 26 home runs and 62 RBI’s. Mark Canha includes 19 homers in the year, although Josh Phegley, Jurickson Profar, Stephen Piscotty, Chad Pinder and Khris Davis also have double-digit homers this year.
Both teams have depth when it comes to batting. New York has been silenced by injuries this year, but continue to have players step up. I believe it needs to help lead, When the Yankees could have players measure back on Thursday night. The A’s have done a great job putting up a good crime against New York and bogged their teammates down and they will seem to keep this up to complete this series out.
Masahiro Tanaka will begin on the mound for New York on Thursday night. Tanaka has made a record of this year. In all those starts, he has an ERA of 4.56 and a WHIP of 1.236. Tanaka’s last start came against the Cleveland Indians, where he allowed two runs and four hits and a third innings pitched to earn his ninth win of this year.
Tanner Roark will make his fourth start. Roark has a 7-8 record over the season along with a record with Oakland. He has put up an ERA of 4.01 and a WHIP of all 1.391 during 25 starts this year. Roark’s last start came from the Houston Astro’s, at which he allowed six hits and two runs through six innings.
Tanaka is currently coming to Thursday night’s tip winning his final 2 games. Roark is getting his feet wet with all the A’s. If he would like to pull off the sweep against the Yankees, roark will have to put up another strong performance. I anticipate because he seems to earn his third win Tanaka to come out strong against Oakland.
New York has dropped three games in a row and I feel they have a chance to bounce back with a win on Thursday night. The Yankees still have powerful depth on the hitting aspect of the match. New York’s pitcher has put back to back wins in his last two starts. I believe that these advantages may help the Yankees rebound straight back from their losses from the first two games of the collection.
BetOnline includes New York listed as a -112 against the money line, which implies that the Yankees will win this game around 52.8 percent of their time. I think this is a fantastic line for this particular match. New York has the best record in the American League, and I don’t like the odds of them dropping their fourth consecutive game. I am taking the Yankees to win on the road.
