Triggs pitched a gem in his last outing as he put in a quality start and picked up the win against the Baltimore Orioles. He went seven scoreless-innings giving up one earned off of a solo home run while he struck out nine while issuing zero walks.
He has done well with the strikeouts (9.35 K/9) while he has kept the walks (3.12 BB/9) and home runs (1.04 HR/9) low. His 4.41 ERA is a tad high, but his 3.89 FIP indicates his defense has hurt him some.
Oakland has been barely getting by in the last week winning three of their seven contests. In that span their lineup has been struggling as they are slashing .199/.250/.312 to go with 18 extra-base hits and just 15 RBI.
New York Yankees
German was fantastic in his first start of the season putting in a quality start against the Cleveland Indians. He pitched six scoreless-innings of no-hit baseball while he fanned nine batters while issuing two walks.
It was an encouraging start for this young pitcher who currently owns a stellar 11.95 K/9 to go with a 3.98 BB/9 and 0.89 HR/9. It is a very small sample size, but you have got to like his swing-and-miss capabilities. He’ll try to improve upon his already low 2.66 ERA in his second start of the season.
New York has been streaking in the last week winning all six of their contests. In that span their lineup is slashing .247/.347/.432 to go with 20 extra-base hits and 36 RBI.

Free Oakland Athletics vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction: German, New York breezes by Oakland
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Yankees -1.5 & UNDER 9
I expect German to have another strong outing against a struggling Oakland lineup, while Triggs should hang in there a while before New York breaks through. New York’s lineup should be able to create separation as the innings dwindle down. Oakland has gone just 6-11 ATS on the road. Back the home team and the run line.
