The New York Yankees will play the Texas Rangers in a double header on Tuesday at Globe Life Field.

The New York Yankees are 98-61 this season and have alternated wins and losses over their last five games. New York won Game 1 of this series by a score of 3-1 on Monday night. The New York pitching staff has a 3.29 ERA, a 1.12 WHIP, and a .218 opponent batting average this season. The Yankees offense has scored 798 runs with a .242 batting average and a .326 on base percentage. Aaron Judge is batting .311 with 61 home runs and 130 RBI’s for the Yankees this season. The projected starter for New York in Game 1 is Jameson Taillon, who is 14-5 with a 3.83 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP over 171.1 innings pitched this season. The projected starter for New York in Game 2 is Gerrit Cole, who is 13-7 with a 3.51 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP over 194.2 innings pitched this season.

The Texas Rangers are 66-93 this season and have lost six games in a row. Prior to losing Game 1 of this series, Texas lost all three of their games played against the Angels. The Texas pitching staff has a 4.24 ERA, a 1.35 WHIP, and a .248 opponent batting average. The Rangers offense has scored 696 runs with a .238 batting average and a .301 on base percentage this year. Corey Seager is batting .243 with 33 home runs and 83 RBI’s for the Rangers this season. The projected starter for Texas in Game 1 is Spencer Howard, who is 2-4 with a 7.41 ERA and a 1.73 WHIP over 37.2 innings pitched this season. The projected starter for Texas in Game 2 is Jon Gray, who is 7-7 with a 3.93 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP over 121.1 innings pitched this season.

New York is looking to win two out of their last three games in order to hit 100 wins, while Texas is looking forward to next year. New York has the pitching advantage in both of these games and I expect them to win both games. I will take the Yankees to win both games by at least two runs. 

David’s Pick Game 1: Yankees -1.5 Game 2: Yankees -1.5
