The Yankees have just ended their three-game losing streak with an 8-3 win in Game 2. Before that, they had too many issues on defense. In these last three games, they have allowed 32 runs in total.

They will hopefully put that to rest with Nestor Cortes (4-5) on the mound, who gets an ERA of 3.36 and a WHIP of 1.10. As a team, they get 3.22 and have a shot at success if they can keep it that way.

Aaron Judge continues to impress at the plate, having 28 home runs and 70 RBIs. Juan Soto is another example of a top-quality offensive player who averages .305 at the plate. Together, they pose the biggest threat to the Braves defense.

The Yankees typically put a batting average of .251 while allowing .221 at the plate for their opponents. If they can keep their foot on the gas at the plate, they should have the best opportunity for success.
