New York Yankees
The Yankees win on Friday night was last-ditch and unexpected. The 11-6 victory on Saturday wasn’t quite so close.
Jordan Montgomery was fantastic over 6.2 innings and New York’s bats came to play, jumping out to an 8-0 lead in the fourth inning.
Starlin Castro homered against his former team and Gary Sanchez got his first two hits following a return from the Disabled List on Friday. Sanchez was hitting behind Aaron Judge for the first time this season.
The Yankees are now 19-9, 10 games over .500 and are only slight underdogs against Jon Lester on Sunday Night Baseball tonight.
The Bombers are young and playing extremely well but don’t get too comfortable on the hype train. New York very well may contend this season but brace yourself for some struggles because they will come.
For now though, why not?
Jon Lester has struggled in one way, or another, in three straight starts.
He gave up nine hits and five earned runs against Cincinnati in a game that he couldn’t get through six. He got 17 outs again in the start after that against Pittsburgh, this time giving up 10 hits and another five runs.
He was more effective at limiting hard contact in his most recent outing against Philadelphia but Lester walked five in five innings.
This isn’t the time to be going up against the Yankees. Then again, Lester never quits and I think it would be foolish to fade the Cubs because of his struggles that are bound to come to an end soon.

Free New York Yankees vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction: Lester battles to get through seven innings, get the win.
The Yankees provide some resistance early but Lester pushes back and gets through his seven innings to put his team in position to go short out of the ‘pen. Severino, meanwhile, only goes five and the Cubs take the game from the Yankee ‘pen.
