New York Yankees vs San Diego Padres prediction

Stroman has been strong this season and in his last start he was dominant. He went 7.1 innings giving up three hits and one run and he’s going to step up again here. The Padres offense has been good overall this season, but they are going to really struggle to get any sort of offense going here. The Braves are going to get to Cease here early, and that is going to be the difference here as the Yankees are going to cruise to the victory. Back the Yankees on the run line.
