Arizona Diamondbacks are in a tight race for a playoff berth in the National League, holding an 81-73 record and currently sitting second in NL Wild Card standings, but competition remains intense. Diamondbacks faltered against the New York Yankees during Game 1, falling 7-1.

Over the last six games, they’ve scored six or more runs in five outings – demonstrating their offensive might and strength.

New York Yankees
The New York Yankees have had an up-and-down season and may soon be eliminated from postseason contention. Even with winning seven of their last 11 games, their hopes rest upon a thread. But in their series opener against the Arizona Diamondbacks, Aaron Judge delivered an impressive victory, hitting three home runs and six RBIs to propel his team’s victory.
On the mound for the Yankees will be talented left-hander Carlos Rodon (3-6, 5.90 ERA). In his last start versus Pittsburgh, he pitched 6.2 innings, allowing three runs while striking out ten batters during a 3-2 loss.
Anthony Rizzo will not return for the remainder of this season due to a concussion he received earlier.
As we prepare for this pivotal showdown, both teams have a lot riding on this matchup. The Diamondbacks hope to build off of winning five of their last six games and keep their playoff hopes alive with Zac Gallen (16-8, 3.60 ERA) at their back as an experienced starter who may give them the edge they need for victory.
The Yankees need a win to remain relevant in the postseason discussion, yet have shown glimpses of potential with recent wins. Carlos Rodon can make life tough on Diamondbacks hitters by creating havoc.
Both teams possess the potential for offense; each can put runs on the board with Corbin Carroll leading the Diamondbacks with a batting average of 284, 25 homers, and 73 RBIs while Gleyber Torres of the Yankees holds a batting average of.271 while posting 25 homers and 66 RBIs.
