NYY star starter Gerrit Cole will pitch on short rest for the first time in his big league career, telling manager Aaron Boone, "Give me the ball." The ace fired 97 pitches in his Game 1 victory, permitting three runs on six hits over six innings. He walked two and struck out eight. Im betting he goes long and strong and for the Yankees to get the win here.
Yankees are 4-1 in their last 5 games as a favorite.Yankees are 11-4 in their last 15 games following a win.Yankees are 46-18 in their last 64 after allowing 2 runs or less in their previous game.Yankees are 5-2 in their last 7 Divisional Playoff games.Yankees are 36-16 in their last 52 playoff games as a favorite.
