Oakland Athletics vs New York Yankees Prediction

Oakland is coming off of a shocking shutout win against the Yankees in game one on Monday afternoon, and they will look to make it two in a row here. The Athletics pitching staff has been very solid to start the year, but their offense is second to last in the MLB. New York is 15-8 on the season, but they are just 6-4 at home. The Yankees have a team ERA under three, which is third in all of baseball. New York is starting Marcus Stroman, who has allowed six earned runs and 10 hits over 10.1 innings in his last two starts, but he did throw 12.0 shutout innings in his first two starts. The A’s are going with Paul Blackburn, who has allowed 0 earned runs in three out of four starts, but did allow three earned runs last time out. Both of these pitchers have been very good this season and I think we are in for another lower scoring game. Take the under here.
