Verdict

This is the rubber match of the series. The Yankees got a huge pitching advantage.

Morgan has been better this year on the road (3.31 ERA) and during day games. However, the 25-year-old has been a little wild over his last five outings and has give up five dingers in his last three outings – which doesn’t bode well against a Yankees team that has hit 31 home runs over the last 15 contests.
 
Cole, the Yankees ace, is in excellent form and has been very good at Yankees Stadium this year. While the 31-year-old has been below average during day games, he was outstanding against the Indians earlier this year – limiting Cleveland to three hits and one run over 7 innings while striking out 11. Cole also has been extremely effective against current members of the Tribe, holding them to a slash line of .074/.082/.157.
 
New York, which may not have Joey Gallo (neck) in the lineup, has won four of Cole’s last five starts. Cole also has been nearly unbeaten against teams with a losing record this season. Meanwhile, Cleveland has lost 7 of Morgan’s last 11 starts.
