ANALYSIS

New York Yankees vs. San Diego Padres Prediction: Can Manny Machado, Padres Avoid the Sweep?

The New York Yankees have stolen the first two games of their West Coast series against the San Diego Padres. Typically, these two teams facing-off wouldn’t mean anything, but with Juan Soto leading the way for New York offensively after leaving the Padres, you know those guys are going to want to salvage the series against their former teammate on Sunday…

YANKEES VS. PADRES DATE, TIME, AND WHERE TO WATCH

  • Date: May 26, 2024
  • Start Time: 4:10 p.m. ET
  • Where to Watch: YESN, MLB Extra Innings

NEW YORK YANKEES VS. SAN DIEGO PADRES PREDICTION

Joe Musgrove, the leader and former “ace" of the Padres, has dealt with injuries all season. He has yet to put it all together, but his two outings in May have resulting in a 3.00 ERA for the month. In a game where the Padres need their leader most, I’m expecting Musgrove to exceed expectations against the Yankees on Sunday.

Clark Schmidt has been solid for the Yankees this season, but the Padres offense matches up nicely against the right-hander. After getting outscored 12-1 in the first two games of the series, I’m predicting the Padres bats that hit over .270 against RHP to wake up in the final game of this series. On a Sunday afternoon in the last game of the series, let’s see how motivated the Yankees will be when they show up after dominating in the first two games.

Juan Soto left the Padres and has shined in New York since his arrival. You don’t think that pisses off Manny Machado and the rest of this Padres team? Besides this series, the Padres have played inspired baseball this season when nobody’s expected it after losing their best player. Expect a highly-motivated San Diego squad to show up and salvage this series against Cork Schmidt and the Yankees; this game simply means more for the Padres, and that’s the team I want my money on.
