New York Yankees - Yankees will have to be strong
During Friday's victory, right fielder Aaron Judge had a spectacular game for the New York Yankees, which helped them pull away. The victory was largely attributable to Judge's three home runs, four hits, and six RBI. In game two, New York was defeated after receiving shaky pitching efforts from Carlos Rodon (6.1 innings; three earned runs) and Randy Vasquez (2.1 innings; two earned runs). Additionally, the offense was unable to contribute much to the game other than a late RBI from Judge. After not having a chance to make the playoffs for the first time since 2016, the New York Yankees have now been formally eliminated from the race. Clarke Schmidt is going to take the mound for the New York Yankees on Monday as the team's starting pitcher. Schmidt has a record of 9-9 through 31 games played (30 starts), with a 4.65 ERA, 143 strikeouts, and 151.0 innings pitched. In his previous seven starts, Schmidt has a record of 1-3 with an earned run average of 6.00.
Arizona Diamondbacks - expected to round the series with a win
In the first game of this series, which took place on Friday, the Arizona Diamondbacks were defeated 7-1 despite collecting only five hits as a team. Christian Walker's home run in the ninth inning scored the lone run for the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Arizona Diamondbacks jumped out to an early lead in their game on Sunday, scoring twice in the opening inning and never looking back en route to a 7-1 triumph. Both Christian Walker (who scored a run) and Evan Longoria contributed two runs batted in apiece to the team's victory. Merrill Kelly will take the mound for the Arizona Diamondbacks in their game on Monday as the team's starting pitcher. Kelly has a record of 12-7 after 28 starts this year, with a 3.37 earned run average, 177 strikeouts, and 165.2 innings pitched. In his previous seven starts, Kelly has a record of 3-2 with a 4.32 earned run average.
Expert Betting Tips
After a solid performance in game three, the Arizona Diamondbacks are a team that I'm considering taking a chance on here. In his most recent three starts, Kelly has had one poor start and two strong ones. Kelly was responsible for a loss to the Mets after pitching 5.0 innings in which he allowed seven earned runs. Kelly has a cumulative score of 1-0 in the other pair despite having a total of 12.1 innings, two earned runs, seven hits, and eight walks. The Arizona Diamondbacks will be in good shape as long as he is able to provide a good start here. During the game on Sunday, the Arizona Diamondbacks made the most of their eight hits as a team and really came on strong in the late innings against the bullpen used by the New York Yankees. With the Arizona Diamondbacks having scored six or more runs in each of the last seven games they've played, I think they'll be able to keep it up and win the rubber match to take the series.
