The New York Yankees (53-20, 31-9 home) are running away with the American League East, while the Oakland Athletics (25-49, 17-21 away) are getting run over by just about every team they face.

Oakland arrived at Yankee Stadium for a three-game series with the AL East-leading Yankees showing a 6-18 record over the past 24 games. Four of those six victories were earned at the expense of the equally-hapless Kansas City Royals.

To no one’s surprise, New York is set as the -190 home favorite in the second game of this set. The Athletics are 17-21 straight up as a road underdog this season.

First pitch at Yankee Stadium is set for 7:05pm ET on Tuesday, June 28. Clear skies are in the forecast, with 6 mph wind and a temperature of 81 degrees.

Oakland vs New York Probable Pitchers

Sixth in AL Cy Young Award voting a year ago, the woes of the A’s are impacting the work of right-hander Frankie Montas. On paper, his numbers are actually better in a lot of intances than in 2021, when he went 13-9.

Montas led the AL in games started (32) last season and is leading again this season (15). His ERA (3.37-3.21) and WHIP (1.18-1.08) are lower than last season and his strikeouts/walks ratio (3.63-4.18) is higher. Yet he’s just 3-7.

Montas is 1-6 in his last seven decisions. In his last start he went eight shutout innings against the Seattle Mariners, allowing two hits. He didn’t figure in the decision, a 2-1 Oakland loss.

Against the Yankees, Montas is 1-0 in two  appearances, including one start, with a 0.00 ERA. His pitched one scoreless inning in relief at Yankee Stadium.

Montas vs Sears

Frankie Montas
JP Sears
3-7 Record 2-0
3.21 ERA 0.00
3.22 xERA 2.14
1.08 WHIP 1.14
4.18 SO/W Ratio 2.33

In three MLB appearances, including one start, rookie left-hander JP Sears has yet to allow a single run. Over seven innings pitched he’s struck out seven and allowed five hits. Sears rates among the top 5% among MLB pitchers in max EV (101.4).

Sears made two relief appearances in April and got his first big-league win in relief against Baltimore in a 5-2 road victory on April 16.

Recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Sears made his first MLB start May 25 at home against the Orioles. Working five innings, he allowed three hits and struck out five in a 2-0 victory. He’s being recalled again to make another spot start on Tuesday.

Batting Average vs Starting Pitchers

Yankees Batters Batting Average vs Montas Athletics Batters Batting Average vs Sears
Matt Carpenter .000 Nick Allen .000
Josh Donaldson .571 Elvis Andrus .000
Joey Gallo .182 Christian Bethancourt .000
Marwin Gonzalez .286 Jonah Bride .000
Aaron Hicks .000 Seth Brown .000
Kyle Higashioka .000 Tony Kemp .000
Aaron Judge .500 Ramon Laureano .000
Isiah Kiner-Falefa .273 Jed Lowrie .000
DJ Lemahieu .000 Sean Murphy .000
Anthony Rizzo .000 Sheldon Neuse .000
Giancarlo Stanton .000 Christian Pache .000
Gleyber Torres .000 Chad Pinder .000
Jose Trevino .667 Stephen Vogt .000

Yankees third baseman Josh Donaldson absolutely crushes Montas. He’s 4-for-7 (.571) with three home runs and five RBI. Aaron Judge is 2-for-4 (.550). Jose Trevino is 2-for-3 (.667) with a homer and three RBI.

No Oakland batter has ever faced Sears in an MLB game.

Athletics vs Yankees Prediction

Montas is certainly deserving of a better fate this season than his record is indicating. He’s been solid in his career when facing the Yankees and was sensational in his last start against the Mariners.

How many times can New York go to the well with Sears before he gets roughed up?

Pick: Oakland Athletics ML (+160)
