Edwin Encarnacion was 1-for-4 and scored a run, while Gleyber Torres went 1-for-4 with an RBI. Adam Ottavino took the loss in relief as he surrendered three runs (two earned) on two hits with one strikeout and one walk over one-third of an inning.

MLB Betting Trends
New York Yankees
The Yankees are 6-1 in their last seven Wednesday games. The Yankees are 6-2 in the last eight German road starts.
New York Mets
The Mets are 2-7 in their last nine games overall. The Mets are 6-2 in the last eight Vargas home starts.
German back in the rotation will be a nice boost to the Yankees and I simply can't trust the Mets to get it done two days in a row. I still don't trust Vargas even though he's been pretty good the last couple months. Look for the Yankees to solve him enough to ride German plus the bullpen to a win.
