The New York Yankees and Oakland Athletics begin a four-game set starting today at RingCentral Coliseum. These clubs are at opposite ends in their divisions, as the New York Yankees hold the top record in the American League East, 8 games ahead of the Tampa Bay Rays. On the opposite end, the Oakland Athletics are at the bottom of the AL West, 34 games behind the Houston Astros.
The Athletics dropped the first two games of their series with the Miami Marlins. Fortunately for them, they managed to turn things around and ended up closing the series with a 3-2 victory over Miami. That outcome got Oakland to 7-13 through the last 20 games as they are battling against the Washington Nationals to avoid the worst record in MLB. This has been a disappointing season for Oakland on every level. The club is 29th in runs per game with 3.44 and 23rd in runs allowed per contest with 4.64.
The Yankees were in a terrible tailspin coming out of the All-Star break, going 9-20 through their first 29 games, giving both Tampa Bay and Toronto hopes that they could catch New York for the top record in the division while also allowing Houston to pass them for the top record in the American League. However, the Bombers dispatched the New York Mets earlier this week, taking both games of the series, and have won three straight games by identical 4-2 scores.
James Kaprielian will try to turn things around for the Athletics. Kaprielian holds a 3-7 record with a 4.29 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP over 100.2 innings pitched. The Yankees have not named their starter for this contest as Luis Severino and Stephen Ridings are both out until mid-September with arm injuries. New York may be forced to lean on their bullpen, which is not a bad thing as they have the top group in baseball with a 2.97 ERA.
