The Yankees look to stay hot this Tuesday, as they take on an equally hot Atlanta Braves team at Truist Park in Atlanta Georgia in a game that has plenty of playoff implications for both sides.
New York Yankees
The New York Yankees have managed to get back in the AL East divisional race off the back of 9 straight wins, as it looks like their trade deadline acquisitions are paying off. They are now only 4.5 games back of the Tampa Bay Rays and it really seems like they could make a run to win this division which is a position not many people saw them in just a couple months ago, as it looked like they would struggle mightily just to get close to a Wild Card spot.
This batting lineup was not nearly as good as advertised given the offseason hype of them being one of the best in the league, but it looks like the acquisitions of Joey Gallo and Anthony Rizzo have really bolstered things and it looks like they could very well become one of the best offenses in the league.
One of the trade deadline pick ups that has not worked out so well so far is that of Andrew Heaney, who heads to the hill here off the back of his first good start for the Yankees which came against the Boston Red Sox and he will have an equally tough matchup here on Tuesday.
Crazy enough, the Atlanta Braves also come into this game after winning 9 straight, so one seriously long streak is about to come to an end in this one. This Braves batting lineup has been explosive over this past run, scoring over 10 runs 3 times over that 9 game stretch, which is pretty amazing given the fact that Ronald Acuna Jr. is on the injured list.
Charlie Morton will be on the mound here and he will likely give his team a great chance to win here coming into this game with a 3.47 ERA and an equally impressive 12-3 record, so it will be interesting to see how he handles the Bronx Bombers here.

Free New York Yankees vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction:
These are two evenly matched teams at this point, but I still do not trust Heaney here, as he has a habit of giving up fly balls and given the weather I could see more of those flying out of the park then usual. Charlie Morton has also been really great this year, and having Morton on the mound makes me give the edge to the home team in this one.
