Yankees vs. Diamondbacks Prediction

I’m on the Diamondbacks here, although it’s not a game I’m rushing to the window to bet. I liked the spot for the Yankees on Monday against Ryne Nelson, but Gallen is Arizona’s ace. These are the kinds of games where you need your best pitcher to come in and be your stopper and I think that’s exactly what Gallen provides for Arizona here. Gallen was at his best at home last year by a wide margin and still managed to take down some tough teams at home along the way. I’m still not all that sold on Nestor Cortes, and think if there’s a spot where the Diamondbacks take down New York, it’s here. Give me Arizona in this one.
