The San Diego Padres travel to New York to face the Yankees On Memorial Day in the first game of a three-game series. The Padres come in with a record of 28-25 while the Yankees are 34-18 and lead the AL East. Left-hander Matt Strahm (2-3) gets the start for San Diego while The Yankees have not yet named a starter. Game time is 1:05 p.m. Eastern at  Yankee Stadium.

Padres take 2 of 3 from Blue Jays

The San Diego Padres took the first two games of their series against the Blue Jays but then got blasted in the finale 10-1 to fall to 28-25. Starter Robbie Erlin took the loss in his first start of the season. Chris Paddack was slated to start but he got scratched at the last minute for a stiff neck. Erlin, a reliever was pressed into action and only pitched 2 innings. He only gave up 1 run but the bullpen got hammered. Luis Perdomo gave up 4 runs in relief. Will Myers accounted for the only run with a home run while Hunter Renfroe, Ty France, and Eric Hosmer had 2 hits each. The Padres are now 7 games behind the Dodgers in second place in the NL West.

The Padres only average 3.8 runs per game, which ranks 28th in the majors. They have a team batting average of .228, which ranks 24th in the league, and a slugging percentage of .406, which is 21st. They are 13th in home runs. Franmil Reyes leads the Padres batting .253 with 15 HRs and 27 RBIs, but has missed the last few games with a sore shoulder, But he should be ready to go for the Yankees series. Eric Hosmer is hitting .284 with 8 HRs and 30 RBIs, while Manny Machado is hitting .269 with 9 HRs and 26 RBIs. Will Myers is hitting .232 with 9 HRs and 19 RBIs, while Hunter Renfroe is batting .248 with 14 HRs and 29 RBIs.

Aside from this past game, the Padres pitching has been very good, They have a team ERA to 3.83, which is 9th in the majors. They have a team WHIP of 1.17, which is 4th, and one of the most effective bullpens in the NL. Left-hander Matt Strahm takes the mound Monday for the Padres. Strahm is 2-3 with a 3.06 ERA.

Yankees winning streak halted at 7

The New York Yankees have been decimated by injuries to some of their biggest stars, Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton, but they have not skipped a beat. They had won 7 straight games coming into Sunday’s match up with the Royals, which they lost 8-7 in 10 innings. But they still lead the AL East by 2 games over Tampa at 34-18. In Sunday’s loss, reliever Jonathan Holder  (3-1) gave up an RBI single to Whit Merrifield in the 10th to lose it. The Yankees had rallied from a 7-1 deficit in the 6th inning to take it to extra innings, Gleyber Torres, who went 2 for 5, had a 3-run homer in the 6th, while DJ LaMahieu and Aaron Hicks had RBI singles in the 9th to tie it. Clint Frazier added 3 hits while Gio Urshela had 2 hits. Doming German had a bad start, allowing 7 runs in 5 innings.

Even without their two superstars, the Yankees are among the best hitting teams in the league. They average 5.3 runs per game, which is 5th in the league. They have a team batting average of .258, which is 5th in the league, and they have a slugging percentage of .448, which is 9th in the league. They are 5th in home runs.  DJ LaMahieu leads the Yankees with a batting average of .320 with 4 HRs and 26 RBIs. Gary Sanchez is batting .265 with 15 HRs and 31 RBIs, while Clint Frazier is batting .262 with 9 HRs and 26 RBIs. Luke Voit is hitting .261 with 13 HRs and 37 RBIs, while Gleyber Torres is hitting .290 with 12 HRs and 26 RBIs. Also, Gio Urshela is batting .336.

The Yankees have gotten some solid pitching this year, particularly from their bullpen. They have a team ERA is 3.75, which is 7th in the MLB. Also, the have a team WHIP of 1.21 which is 5th. They have not yet named a starter for Monday’s game vs San Diego. Be sure to check back Monday for the Yankees starter.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Take the Padres here. This would normally be CC Sabathia’s start, but Sabathia went on the 10 day injured list last week with knee inflammation. They could move up Masahiro Tanaka’s start, or look down the depth chart or into the bullpen for a spot start. Whatever the solution, it’s not optimal. This gives the advantage to the Padres and Strahm, who is 2-3 but has been very solid. He was excellent in his last start, allowing 2 runs on 4 hits in 6 innings in a win over Arizona. The Padres are 4-1 in Strahms last 5 starts with 5 days of rest. Be sure to check the Yankee starter tomorrow.

Prediction: San Diego

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Go with the over. The Yankees pitching staff has been torn apart by injuries and now with Sabathia out for a few starts, the ranks are getting very thin. Fortunately, the bullpen has held them together, but I don’t like the Yankees in this spot, having to travel from KC after a game that ended at about 7 ET on Sunday to play Monday afternoon at 1 pm. The over is 4-0 in Yankees last 4 interleague home games vs. a left-handed starter. Also, the over is 5-1 in Padres last 6 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600.

Prediction: Over
