The New York Yankees are playing some of their best baseball this season as they are on a 7-game winning streak and they have done it with their bats as they have scored 33 runs over their last 2 games. The Yankees will be throwing the better pitcher with Tanaka on the mound as he is posting a 3.16 ERA, but the Bronx Bombers have received back the services of Stanton, Judge, and Urshela which makes this team very dangerous again. Luke Voit is putting up MVP numbers right now as he has 19 HRs and 45 RBIs, but LeMahieu has been doing a number on the ball himself with a .363 batting average. New York is looking like the New York we expected this season, and they will close out the series on a high note. Final Score Prediction, New York Yankees win 8-3.
