The Oakland Athletics have been a bit better than expected so far. They will likely settle for an AL Wild Card spot as they trail the Houston Astros by 8.5 games in the AL West. Oakland has relied on stellar pitching. The team ranks fourth in least runs allowed (575) in the AL. Guys like Mike Fiers (3.11 ERA), Chris Bassitt (3.67 ERA), and Frankie Montas (2.70 ERA) have been strong.
The offense is led by Matt Chapman and Marcus Semien. Chapman leads the Athletics with 30 homers and 74 RBIs. Semien is hitting .275 with 25 homers and 72 RBIs.
On the mound for the Athletics is Mike Fiers. Fiers is 13-3 with a 3.11 ERA this season. The righty veteran has won 11 straight decisions and hasn’t lost a game since May 1st. In his lone outing against the Yankees he allowed two runs in 5.1 innings.
New York Yankees
New York has been rolling this season with an 88-48 record. The Yankees will certainly win the AL East as they hold a 10 game lead on the Rays with less than a month to play. The team ranks 1st in baseball in runs (793) and rank second in homers.
Unfortunately rising star Gio Urshela is expected to be out for about two weeks with a groin injury. Urshela was hitting .330 with 18 homers and 67 RBIs.
The team is led by sluggers Gleyber Torres, Aaron Judge, D.J. LeMahieu, and Gary Sanchez. Torres has a team-high 33 homers, while LeMaheiu leads them in average (.335) and RBIs (89).
Sanchez (30 homers) and Judge (18 homers) have provided pop.
The Yankees will have struggling pitcher J.A. Happ on the mound for Sunday’s game. Happ is 11-8 but has a brutal 5.57 ERA. In his only start against Oakland he was roughed up for five runs in four innings.
Free Oakland Athletics vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
I expect the Yankees to get a few early runs against a hot Mike Fiers. Happ will have a short leash but the Yankees bullpen will get it done.
