Yankees avoid four-game sweep
New York won its series finale 9-6 at Boston Sunday night to keep from being swept in the four-game series. Austin Romine helped pace the offensive effort as he went 1-for-4 with a home run and two RBIs. Didi Gregorius finished 1-for-4 with a home run, a walk and two RBIs. Cameron Maybin completed the contest 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, two runs and an RBI.

MLB Betting Trends
The Diamondbacks are 8-1 in their last nine interleague games. Arizona is 1-10 in its last 11 Tuesday games.
The Yankees are 37-15 in their last 52 home games. New York is 23-9 in the last 32 Happ starts.
Happ isn't exactly a pitcher you have a lot of confidence in, but it's almost certain he will get plenty of run support here and the Yankees win more often than not when he takes the mound. Expect New York's array of power hitters to frustrate the rookie Clarke and send the hosts to a victory. I'm actually going with the runline here as I think the Yankees ease to the win.
