New York Yankees
The Yankees are 7-3 in their last 10 and will look to keep pace with the Dodgers for best record in the league who they are currently tied with. New York has been awesome the last couple months and that can mostly be put down to their batting performances which have been outstanding. This will, however, be a different type of game as the Athletics pitch well and the stadium has historically been a lower scoring one.
In an effort to keep pace with the Dodgers, the Yankees will send Masahiro Tanaka (9-6,4.56 ERA) to the hill. Tanaka is now coming off two awesome starts against the Indians and Blue Jays. In those games he pitched a total of 14 1/3 innings and only gave up 7 hits surrendering only 2 runs good for a 1.26 overall ERA in those two starts.
The Athletics are now tied for a spot in their Wild Card race after an excellent 7-3 run over the last 10. Oakland will look to improve on their excellent 41-24 home record when they welcome in the Yankees this Thursday night. Looking to defend home turf and take down one of the best teams in baseball the A’s will send Tanner Roark (7-8, 4.01 ERA) to the mound.
Roark has been great in his 3 starts for the Athletics since being acquired in a trade and has a 2.55 ERA in his 3 starts for them. The A’s righty is also coming off an outstanding effort against the Astros on Friday where he went 6 strong innings and only gave up 2 runs.

Free New York Yankees vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction:
This park does not give up many runs and, both of these pitchers have been outstanding as of late. The A’s also don’t have a potent offense and I think we could get a very good number in this spot.
