San Francisco Giants vs New York Yankees Score Prediction 07-22-16
Making a Yankees MLB prediction isn’t easy. They have been inconsistent this year because the pitching staff has had numerous injuries and a few of the old stars are just looking old. It won’t get easier for the Yankees today as the San Francisco Giants will send ace Madison Bumgarner (10-5, 2.12 ERA) to the mound trying to stop the skid the Giants have been on after the All Star break. He will be opposed by New York’s Masahiro Tanaka (7-2, 3.15). Bumgarner looked brilliant to close out the first half with a complete-game victory versus Arizona before losing last time out. The San Francisco Giants owned the best record in the majors at the All-Star break, but they have stumbled out of the gate with five consecutive losses to open the second half will be trying to keep the Yankees playoff hopes alive.
While Bumgarner will make his debut at Yankee Stadium and first start versus New York, one bit of drama was removed when San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy decided to use the designated hitter instead of having his star left-hander bat for himself (no Babe Ruth impression this time out). Right-hander Masahiro Tanaka, who has not lost since June 11.

Giants vs Yankees MLB Prediction
We have two top pitchers going at it at Yankee stadium. If you like baseball then you don’t have to have money on this game to enjoy it. Bumgarner is the big draw today, to bad he won’t be hitting to. One thing to remember when looking at Bumgarner’s stats. He is a big game pitcher. When the season is on the line or the team needs a big performance he gets the job done. Anytime I can get him pitching for the Giants at less than -120 I will take the bet. Only bet on this game is on the San Francisco Giants money line.
