New York Yankees
The Yankees slide into this evening’s contest sporting a 28-12 record that ranks them 1st in the AL East. The Boston Red Sox and Yankees have been battling it out all season long for the lead in the division. By the looks of it, New York just got done retaking the lead with their 2-win series versus the Oakland Athletics. New York was looking to build on that lead last night when they were gaining momentum towards the end of the match. In the end the rain helped the Nationals out more than New York, since it kept the Yankees from getting the lead. To help get the win regardless of the rain delay, New York will be sending CC Sabathia to the mound this evening. Sabathia is 2-0 on the season with a 2.23 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Aaron Judge (11 HR, 35 RBI, .307 BA), Didi Gregorius (10 HR, 31 RBI, .255 BA), and Giancarlo Stanton (10 HR, 26 RBI, .255 BA).
The Nats slide into this matchup sporting a 24-18 record that ranks them 3rd in the NL East. However, Washington’s recent 4-game winning streak has put them just 1 ½ games behind the division leading Atlanta Braves. With a winning performance in their series against the Yanks, Washington could land the top spot in the NL East. To help get the win this evening, Washington will be starting Max Scherzer. Scherzer is 7-1 on the year with a brilliant 1.69 ERA and an eye-catching 0.82 WHIP. Tonight’s matchup between Scherzer and Sabathia should make for some highly entertaining competition.
Players to Watch: Matt Adams (10 HR, 25 RBI, .268 BA), Bryce Harper (13 HR, 30 RBI, .232 BA), and Howie Kendrick (4 HR, 12 RBI, .302 BA).
