On an Easter edition of Sunday Night Baseball, the red-hot New York Yankees (7-4) will try to sweep the St. Louis Cardinals (3-8) in the finale of their three-game series. New York took the first two games by scores of 4-3 and 3-2, and the Bronx Bombers have now won six straight since an ugly 1-4 start to the season.
Taking the ball for the Yankees tonight will be Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde himself Michael Pineda. In Pineda’s first start, he was saddled with the loss after getting shelled by the Rays in Tampa. He gave up four earned runs on eight hits and no walks while striking out six batters over 3.2 innings. But in his very next start, Pineda was absolutely dazzling. He picked up the win after holding Tampa to one earned run on two hits and no walks while striking out 11 batters over 7.2 innings. Go figure with this dude.
Adam Wainwright will be toeing the bump for the Cardinals, and the 35-year-old veteran’s hardships have continued in 2017. After missing virtually all of the 2015 season due to injury and having a brutal 2016 campaign, Wainwright hasn’t exactly hit the ground running this year. He’s gone 0-2 in his first two starts with a 7.00 ERA and 2.00 WHIP while striking out nine batters over nine innings.
Now that we’ve looked at the pitching matchup, let’s breakdown all of the different ways you can watch tonight’s game.
