New York Yankees
As I write, the Yankees are in the bottom of the 11th at Wrigley Field after blowing a 4-1 lead in the ninth. Adam Warren is on the mound for New York after seven innings from Luis Severino gave the Yanks their chance to sweep.
A loss would deflate a team that will certainly be tired after getting on the road following an extra inning game on Sunday Night Baseball.
The only person it might not affect would be Masahiro Tanaka.
The Yankees’ ace from Japan is on a roll, winner of a four straight starts. Tanaka’s ERA is still in the 4s but he hasn’t walked a batter in his last two outings and is giving up just a hit per inning on the year. If there’s one thing I feel good about on Monday, it’s that he’s going to pitch well against the Reds.
Cincy got on a scoring spree in its weekend series against the Giants and then got a shutout in the finale to complete the sweep, Scott Feldman going the distance to give his bullpen a Sunday off.
That’s the right way to start the week with the Yanks coming to town.
Everyone is talking about Aaron Judge and with the return of Gary Sanchez New York’s lineup looks a lot longer and more potent than I ever would have imagined it would when the season started.
It’s up to Rookie Davis to hold it in check. Davis brought his ERA back down to the 7s after five shutout innings against the Pirates.

Free New York Yankees vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction: Tanaka pitches well but Yankees can’t give him enough run support for fifth straight.
This is a scheduling loss for New York, on the road after Sunday Night Baseball. It didn’t help at all that it went to extra innings (it’s in the 12th now).
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Under 9.0 (-120)
Rather than take the Reds, I’ll play the under because of Tanaka’s potential to shut it down.
