Anderson is coming off his worst start of the season, allowing seven runs in 3.1 innings against the San Diego Padres. He has lost his last four starts and has a 1.78 WHIP in his last five outings.

Cole is one of the best pitchers in baseball this season, and he is coming off a dominant performance against the Tampa Bay Rays, where he allowed one run in seven innings. He has a 1.09 WHIP and 12.0 strikeouts per nine innings this season.

The Yankees are the clear favorites in this game, but the Rockies have been playing better recently. They have won three of their last four games, and they are 5-2 at Coors Field in their last seven home games.

The weather for the game is expected to be clear and warm, with a high of 82 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Gerrit Cole vs. Trevor Story: Story is one of the best hitters in baseball against right-handed pitching, and he will be looking to get the best of Cole in this matchup.
  • Aaron Judge vs. Chase Anderson: Judge is one of the best power hitters in baseball, and he will be looking to take Anderson deep.
  • DJ LeMahieu vs. Chase Anderson: LeMahieu is a patient hitter who can hit for both power and average, and he will be a tough out for Anderson.
