The New York Yankees were quite literally unbeatable during their August win streak, but the terms “regressing to the mean” or “crashing back down to earth” don’t even begin to describe how pathetic they have looked over the last few weeks.
Not only did the Yankees struggle at home against two division rivals in the Orioles and Blue Jays, but the latter actually ended up sweeping them, as they have planted themselves firmly in the Wild Card race at the expense of the mighty Yankees.
The Yankees will try to get back on the right track against the rival New York Mets, who themselves are struggling to stay afloat in the NL East chase due to poor hitting and some bullpen collapses. Sound familiar?
One of these trainwrecks has to come to a standstill in the Subway Series, and the Yankees will try everything in their power to once again get one over on their crosstown rivals.

Yankees Pitcher Today
One of the few bright spots of late for the Yankees has been Jordan Montgomery, who is sporting a 3.47 ERA and 122 ERA+ in 25 starts this year. Look for him to saw through a Mets lineup that has had difficulties getting consistent hard contact against left-handed pitching this season.
Aaron Boone shouldn’t be fooled by Tylor Megill’s lack of star power or brand recognition, as his 4.20 ERA in 14 starts has helped keep the Mets afloat despite some serious injuries in their rotation.

Yankees vs Mets Prediction Today
The squad might be in the middle of one of their worst stretches of the season, but something has got to give, and what better team to pick up some easy wins against than the crosstown rival Mets, who aren’t exactly steamrolling everyone in their path at the moment.
While this should be another low-scoring affair given how the offense is completely out of sync right now, a strong start by Montgomery should be enough to put his team in front and give them the win.
