Philadelphia Phillies vs New York Yankees
Citizens Bank Park will host the final game between the Phillies and the Yankees.
Philadelphia Phillies are on good form, registering their third straight walk-off win on Saturday. They are also 5-1 in their last 6 games, and 4-1 in their last 5 home games. Aaron Nola is scheduled to take the mound for the Phillies. He comes into this game with a 4-4 record and a 4.06 ERA, but he has given up 3 earned runs or fewer in 9 games. Nola’s only career appearance against the Yankees was great: 6 innings, one run, 12 strikeouts and no walks.
The Yankees have not been good lately and they are now 2-5 in their last 7 overall, and 1-5 in their last 6 on the road. They will hand the ball to Domingo German. He has been performing well allowing 3 runs or less in his previous 9 outings. He has an ERA of 3.12. However he is striking out batters at the lowest rate of his career, he has a high HR rate (1.78HR/9) and a high strand rate (88.7 %).
German is trending in the wrong direction and with Nola giving the Phillies a chance to win every time he steps on the mound, we are going to back the Phillies in this one.
