The new-look New York Yankees unveiled a brand new lineup that includes Joey Gallo in the outfield and Anthony Rizzo at first base. Rizzo has already assimilated into the Yankees’ culture, smashing two home runs in his first two games against Derek Jeter, Don Mattingly, and the Miami Marlins.
While GM Kim Ng and the Marlins were able to get some desirable assets like Jesus Luzardo in exchange for a rental in Starling Marte, the Marlins are clearly in a selling mood, and the Yankees are ready to take advantage.
The Yankees are looking for the sweep in Miami, as some timely Rizzo jacks and clutch pitching from a bullpen that has been under fire over the last few weeks have helped save New York.
Will the Yankees put their foot down and end up sweeping the Marlins, or will they flounder once again and leave Miami on the wrong foot following some more substandard performances?

Yankees vs Marlins Prediction Today
The Yankees have had a problem keeping momentum this year, as two close wins have traditionally been followed by a blowout loss that completely sucks all of the positivity out of proceedings.
However, this team has received a big shot in the arm with the acquisition of Rizzo, and despite the fact that the Yankees are still leaning on that all-or-nothing approach at the plate, they should be able to come out on top, especially with Miami’s pitching woes.
Yankees 5, Marlins 2.
