ATS Matchup Insight | CappersPicks Insider Preview

Getting the first win wasn’t easy, it took New York (27-23) 12 innings after an hour rain delay to start the game, to finally scratch across the winning run — an RBI single to left field by Brian Roberts that resulted in a 6-4 victory on Monday.

The win was the Yankees third straight win and eighth in the past 12 games.

With the loss, the Cardinals (28-23) meanwhile, dropped to 14-8 at home to begin their nine-game homestand. It was only the third defeat in 12 games for St. Louis.

The extra innings seem to be becoming a habit for New York as it was the third time in six days the Yankees needed the extra frames to secure a win.

They beat the Chicago Cubs in 13 innings on Wednesday of last week and then turned around and torpedoed the Chicago White in 10 over the weekend.

In order to avoid another long outing, the Bronx Bombers will hope they get a solid start from David Phelps (1-1, 3.18 ERA), who is making his fifth start of the season.

The right-hander went a season-long seven innings in his last outing, striking out eight and giving up just only two runs and six hits while losing to the White Sox.

The Cardinals will counter with Lance Lynn (R) (5-2, 3.60) who has just one victory over his last six starts.


The right-hander will look to get back to the form that saw him start the 2014 campaign with four straight wins.

His last outing was a no-decision against Arizona, as he gave up two runs and seven hits in six innings.

Good news for the Yankees in this one, as they expect to return first baseman Mark Teixeira to the lineup after being scratched on Monday.

The Cardinals in the meantime will hope third baseman Matt Carpenter, who went 1-for-6 on Monday, which included a game-tying triple n the first, can get back some of his mojo during an eight-game hitting streak.


  • NYY are 2-7 in their last 9 Tue. games.
  • Under is 9-3 in NYY last 12 on grass.
  • Under is 9-3 in NYY last 12 overall.
  • STL are 9-2 in their last 11 Tue. games.
  • STL are 9-3 in their last 12 overall.
  • STL are 9-3 in their last 12 games on grass.


1. Houston is attempting to win three straight series for the first time since 2010.
2. Angels CF Mike Trout left Tuesday’s game in the fifth inning with a tight left hamstring, but he hopes to play Wednesday.
3. The Astros are 2-18 in games when they don’t hit a home run.

Matt’s Free Prediction: UNDER

New York is 1-5 in Phelps’ last six road while the Cardinals are 18-8 in Lynn’s last 26 home starts.

With Phelps and Lynn on the mound, scoring won’t be easy, so I am going with the under.
