Why you should back the Yankees
Outfielder Aaron Judge continues his dominant campaign. Judge owns serious home-run and run-producing qualities. He is able to smack the ball out of any park with ease. The three-time All-Star moves well for his size and has a strong throwing arm. Judge is first in the MLB in home runs (28) and tied for fourth in RBIs (56). In his last outing, he drilled a three-run walk-off-homer.
First baseman Anthony Rizzo is another big-time bat in the lineup for New York. Rizzo creates plenty of power and speed in his swing. His approach to the plate is solid overall with good patience and pitch recognition. Rizzo is tied for sixth in the majors in homers (19) and tied for 10th in RBIs (49).
Why you should back the Athletics
Left fielder Seth Brown has produced offensively for the Athletics. Brown owns a smooth swing with serious home-run power. The 29-year-old currently leads the team in home runs (10) and RBIs (36). Brown is currently on a six-game hitting streak, including three straight games with 2-plus hits.
Sean Murphy is a great defensive catcher with superb instincts and a solid throwing arm. Murphy has been an effective batter with quality plate coverage and patience. The 2021 Gold Glove Winner has recorded eight home runs and 30 RBIs. In his last contest, Murphy went 2-for-5 with two singles and two RBIs.
