The Yankees are the best team in baseball and come into this game playing well. Pittsburgh is one of the bottom teams in all of baseball, but have one of their better pitchers starting on Tuesday. Jose Quintana has allowed three runs or fewer in each of his last three starts for the Pirates. For the Yankees, Jameson Taillon has allowed nine runs in his last 10.2 innings of work. I like the under in this game.
