The New York Yankees are in Oakland today for the final game of their four game series with the Athletics. Oakland won the first two games but the Yankees came from behind in yesterdays game to win 5-3. The Yankees have had a hard time winning against the Athletics over the past few seasons especially in Oakland where they have won just 2 of the last 13 games.
Head to Head Trends
Yankees are 2-11 in the last 13 meetings in Oakland.
Yankees are 6-1 in their last 7 games with Nauert behind home plate.
The Oakland Athletics are last in the American League West with a 19-33 record which is also good for last place in the entire American League. This has obviously been a bad season for the Athletics but so far the writing was on the wall of what kind of season it would be when they traded Josh Donaldson to the Blue Jays for Brett Lawrie in the off-season.
Starting for the Athletics in this one is Jesse Chavez who is 1-5 with a 2.44 ERA on the season. Chavez has pitched great this season it’s just he hasn’t been getting any run support, the Athletics offense are averaging just 1.90 runs in his starts.
Oakland Athletics Trends
Athletics are 7-17 in their last 24 overall.
Athletics are 1-6 in Chavezs last 7 starts with 4 days of rest.
New York Yankees (+120)
The New York Yankees are 1st in the American League East but that don’t really mean a whole lot as the whole AL East is pretty bad. The Yankees got off to a hot start this season but they hit a rough patch that saw them win just 1 of 11 games although they have been playing better again of late winning 4 of their last 6 games.
On the hill for the Yankees today is Adam Warren who is 3-3 with a 3.91 ERA on the season. Warren had a little bit of a rough start making the conversion to starter this season but he seems to be settling into his new role nicely with three quality starts in row.
New York Yankees Trends
Yankees are 6-2 in Warrens last 8 starts.
Yankees are 52-22 in their last 74 during game 4 of a series.
I’m going to go with the new York Yankees over the Athletics in this one. I don’t really think the Yankees are all that good a team but they are still far better then the Athletics.
