Yankees Look to Take Two of Three from Giants With Win Sunday

On Sunday, the American League East New York Yankees host the National League West leading San Francisco Giants in the third and final game of a three-game interleague series. The current line has New York favored at -134, San Francisco at +124 and the over/under run total on 9.5.

Entering this showdown San Francisco has a record of 58-39 overall and 29-22 on the road. The Giants are 4-6 over their past 10 games played. New York entering this game is 49-48 overall and 28-22 at home. The Yankees are 6-4 over their past 10 games played.

San Francisco will send Jeff Samardzija to the mound on Sunday. The Giants right-hander is 9-5 with an ERA of 4.05. New York will counter with Nathan Eovaldi. The New York right-hander is 8-6 with an ERA of 4.93.

Samardzija had a no-decision in his last outing even though he gave up four earns runs or more for the fourth time in his past five starts. He has given up 17 home runs this season, but 12 in his past eight starts.

Eovaldi was moved to the Yankees bullpen after a losing streak of four starts. He made three appearances in relief prior to returning to the starting rotation where he limited the Orioles to a single run and scattered four hits on Tuesday.

San Francisco snapped its skid of six straight games with a 2-1 win on Saturday but it took them 12 innings to do so. This was the first win for the Giants since returning from the All-Star break. The Giants end a road trip of 8 games with his game Sunday in New York.

Mac Williamson has three home runs over his past six games for the Giants and knocked in the winning run for San Francisco on Saturday. The Giants bullpen pitched scoreless ball over the final six innings of the game in relief of starter Johnny Cueto.

The loss for New York was a rare one when its three top relievers Andrew Miller, Dellin Betances and Aroldis Chapman all appear in the same contest. In those situations, the Yankees are now 19-2 after Saturday’s loss.

Giants catcher Trevor Brown has 5 hits in 9 at bats over his past three games.

New York left fielder Brett Gardner has at least one hit in each of his past eight games.

Prediction: The Yankees are playing well of late and the Giants are not. Giants on yesterday, lean on the Yankees today.
