New York vs Philadelphia: Consistent Yankees Host Faltering Phillies
NY Yankees: Hanging tough in a suddenly competitive AL East
Sitting in first place with a 27-25 record, back on June 1, 2015, New York was the only AL East squad with a winning record. Fast forward three weeks and every team, except Boston, is now above .500 and three games separate the top four squads. Playing somewhat above preseason expectations, the Yankees are 38-31 and trail Tampa Bay by one game. Following a one run on one hit 2-1 win over Miami, RHP Michael Pineda (8-3 ERA 3.54) gets the call to the hill for New York.
Philadelphia Phillies: MLB cellar dwellers enter tonight’s action fresh off a rare win
While we still haven’t reached the halfway point of the 2015 MLB season, Philadelphia is already looking towards next year as the Phillies are 24-47 and sit 13.5 games out of first place in the NL East division. Philadelphia is floundering in many areas but the Phillies are particularly pathetic on the road as they are 7-28 as visitors this season. Playing in his 13th MLB season, journeyman RHP Kevin Correia (0-1 ERA 1.69) is making his third start of the year for the Phillies tonight.
New York vs Philadelphia MLB Prediction: Although the Yankees are far from a juggernaut, the Phillies flat out stink. Pineda is a sparkling 4-1 with a 2.36 ERA at home and that gives New York an advantage here. Back the Yankees with a 500 unit wager on the UWIN sportsbook run line.
