The New York Yankees aim for their first three-game winning streak in nearly a month when they host the New York Mets on MLB on TBS for the final game of the 2022 Subway Series on Tuesday. The Yankees (75-48) have gone 11-20 since the All-Star break, posting consecutive victories just once during that span -- a three-game run from July 28-30. The Mets (79-45) won both games at home last month in the first installment of this year's Subway Series, but the Yankees recorded a 4-2 triumph in the opener of this two-game set on Monday.

Why you should back the Yankees

The Yankees will finish with a losing record on their nine-game homestand, but ending it with three consecutive victories will be a huge boost to their confidence heading into a 10-game road trip that begins against two of the worst teams in the American League in Oakland and the Los Angeles Angels. The top of the lineup was instrumental in Monday's triumph as Andrew Benintendi and Aaron Judge combined to go 4-for-7 with a homer and three RBI. The 28-year-old Benintendi, who was acquired from Kansas City on July 27, has gone 4-for-6 with two doubles, a homer, four RBI and three runs scored over his last two contests.

Judge went deep on Monday for the first time in 10 games, ending his longest drought of the season. The 30-year-old leads the major league with 47 blasts and also is first with 103 RBI, one more than Mets star Pete Alonso. Judge is 3-for-9 lifetime against Taijuan Walker, with all three hits being home runs, while Marwin Gonzalez has homered twice and driven in five runs versus the right-hander over his career.

Why you should back the Mets

Manager Buck Showalter originally had Jacob deGrom slated to start the series finale but switched to Walker, and for good reason. The 30-year-old has made three starts in the Subway Series since joining the Mets last year and won two of them, including one on July 26. Walker served up back-to-back one-out homers in the first inning of that outing but settled down nicely, allowing one run and five hits over his final 5 ⅔ frames.

The Mets were limited to just four hits on Monday but figure to improve on that number against Frankie Montas, who is winless with a 9.00 ERA in three starts for the Yankees since being acquired from Oakland on Aug. 1. Alonso has reached the 30-homer mark for the third time in his four major-league seasons and leads the NL with 102 RBI while Francisco Lindor ranks third with 84. The 28-year-old Lindor has enjoyed facing Montas during his career, going 4-for-9 with a pair of doubles and two walks.
