Analysis
My selection is on New York over St. Louis at 8:15 pm et on Friday. We’ll give the Yankees the considerable advantage in terms of both the starting pitching and the bullpen matchup in this one and the price is reasonable to back them. Nestor Cortes Jr. will take the ball for New York. He’s obviously enjoying a breakout season having posted a 3.35 FIP and 1.02 WHIP while giving up only 2.62 runs per nine innings. In comparison with his counterpart on Friday, Dakota Hudson, Cortes has given up 1.1 fewer hits and 1.9 fewer walks per nine innings this season. The Yankees bullpen has been outstanding all season and that has certainly been the case lately as they’ve recorded a collective 2.39 ERA and 1.03 WHIP over the last seven games. Hudson checks in with a 4.62 FIP and 1.36 WHIP this season, yielding just shy of 4.2 runs per nine innings. Behind Hudson is a Cardinals bullpen that entered yesterday’s double-header against the Cubs having posted a collective 6.11 ERA and 1.13 WHIP over the last seven contests. Take New York (8*).
