The New York Yankees and the Milwaukee Brewers will conclude their interleague series this Sunday from Yankee Stadium. Milwaukee outgunned New York again in game two to win, 9-2.
Brewers Preview & Projected Starter
Milwaukee moved to 79-62 after defeating New York. The Brewers’ weekend in New York has gone well, and they’ll look to complete the sweep this Sunday. The Milwaukee offense is 4.56 scoring runs per game, while batting .231, with a .307 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.95 ERA, with a 1.31 WHIP.
Corbin Burnes (9-7, 3.55 ERA, 167 Ks) will take the mound for Milwaukee. The sixth-year righty pitched well at Wrigley last week despite the final result, striking out seven over seven innings of work, while holding the Cubs to just one run. Burnes has been pretty steady since the start of July, holding clubs to two runs or less in nine of his last eleven starts.
Brewers Player Trends & Props
Christian Yelich produced a run in the game two win, and he leads the Brewers in hits (141) and RBI (69), with seventeen homers.
Willy Adames provided a three-run shot in the game one victory, and he leads Milwaukee in home runs (22), with 65 RBI.
William Contreras brings a thirteen-game hit streak into this contest, and after producing a run in seven of the last ten games, he leads the team in batting (.282), with 14 homers and 65 runs batted in.
Carlos Santana has collected a hit in twelve straight games, and he’s totaled eighteen homers and 68 RBI between time in Pittsburgh and Milwaukee this season.
Yankees Preview & Projected Starter
New York moved to 70-72 after defeating Detroit. The Yankees have now dropped three straight, and put a halt on their playoff hopes. The New York offense is scoring 3.87 runs per game, while batting .230, with a .300 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.87 ERA, with a 1.25 WHIP.
Gerrit Cole (12-4, 2.95 ERA, 149 Ks) will take the hill for New York. The tenth-year ace pitched well in Detroit last week, striking out seven through six innings, while holding the Tigers to two runs to earn his twelfth victory. Cole has been the most reliable player in the organization this season, and even with the Yankees struggling throughout the season, he finds himself in the mix for the AL Cy Young Award. The UCLA product has held clubs to two runs or less in seven of his nine post-All Star break starts, and he’ll look to deliver here again versus Detroit.
Yankees Player Trends & Props
Gleyber Torres is leading NYY in hits (138), while posting splits of .272/24/58.
Aaron Judge homered in two of three matchups in Houston, and he’s leading the Yanks in homers (31), with 58 RBI.
Giancarlo Stanton has recorded a hit in seven of the last nine games, and he’s tallied 21 home runs and 53 runs batted in for the season.
Anthony Volpe has totaled multiple bases in six of the last nine games, and he’s posting similar totals of 20 home runs and 53 RBI.
Corey’s Free Pick
If there’s ever a pitcher’s duel to buy into, it may just be this one. Gerrit Cole and Corbin Burnes have been two of the best pitchers in the league for over three seasons now, and I believe they’ll control this contest. The Yanks need a win, but the Under may end up bringing more security here.
