New York Yankees
The Yanks enter tonight’s inter-conference matchup flashing a 78-46 record that ranks them 2nd in the AL East. As aforementioned, the race for the lead in the AL East was pretty tight but New York has started to fall behind significantly. But with the momentum provided by their recent 3-game sweep of Toronto, New York is hopeful that they can mount a resurgence. All in all this will be the third time this season these two have crossed paths. So far the score is even at 1-1. Tonight the Yankees have tasked Masahiro Tanaka with getting the best of Miami. Tanaka is 9-4 and wields a 4.03 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Aaron Judge (26 HR, 61 RBI, .285 BA), Giancarlo Stanton (32 HR, 80 RBI, .285 BA), and Didi Gregorius (22 HR, 74 RBI, .270 BA).
The Marlins swim into this Tuesday night pairing sporting a 50-76 record that ranks them dead last in the NL East. Although it’s pretty clear Miami is having a rough season, the Marlins recently snapped a 6-game losing streak by picking up back-to-back wins over the Washington Nationals. Nevertheless, it’s doubtful that momentum will be enough to upset New York, even despite the fact that the Marlins will be playing at home. Pablo Lopez is charged with defending the homeland this evening. Lopez is 2-3 this season and has a 4.79 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP to his name.
Players to Watch: JT Realmuto (16 HR, 61 RBI, .293 BA), Derek Dietrich (15 HR, 39 RBI, .269 BA), and Justin Bour (19 HR, 54 RBI, .227 BA).
