BIG AL's RED-HOT MLB 3-GAME CARD (24-10 RUN)!
Miami Marlins (30-28) at New York Yankees (32-26)
Saturday, September 26, 2020 at 1:05 pm
At 1:05 pm, our selection is on the New York Yankees over the Miami Marlins. The Yankees are no strangers to finding a kid somewhere down south and signing him as a 16-year-old before anyone else can grab him. A case in point is now-21-year-old Deivi Garcia. The Yanks signed Garcia out of the Dominican Republic five years ago and this season the RHP is making his debut in pinstripes. For the most part, it's been a successful coming-out party as Garcia is 2-2 in five starts so far. The 4.88 ERA may seem a bit high, but Garcia also has a K:BB ratio above 5:1 as he has punched out 26 hitters and walked just 5 in 27 1/3 innings of work. Garcia had back-to-back strong seven-inning outings against a very good Blue Jays lineup but then threw in a bit of a clunker against the Red Sox in his last. But that was Garcia's first start at Fenway Park, and Fenway can be difficult for pitchers who have never thrown there. The Marlins just punched their post-season ticket with their win over this Yankee club yesterday, so a letdown could be in order this afternoon. Take the Yanks.
