The Toronto Blue Jays look for a win after winning six of their last eight games. The Blue Jays have scored eight runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 10 games. The Blue Jays have won eight straight games when scoring more than three runs. Josh Donaldson leads Toronto with 133 hits and 86 RBI while Kevin Pillar and Edwin Encarnacion have combined for 105 RBI. The Toronto Blue Jays have won six of their last eight home games. Drew Hutchison takes the hill, and he’s 11-2 with a 5.26 ERA and 110 strikeouts this season. Hutchison is 4-4 with a 4.15 ERA and 43 strikeouts in his career against the Yankees.
The Yankees are 17-4 in their last 21 during game 3 of a series and 1-5 in their last 6 games vs. a right-handed starter. The Blue Jays are 14-5 in their last 19 during game 3 of a series and 5-0 in Hutchisons last 5 starts. The under is 4-1 in Hutchisons last 5 starts vs. Yankees.
Hutchison has lost just once since June and has picked up the win in both of his starts in August. Hard to see the Blue Jays getting swept after the insane streak they were just on. Give me the Blue Jays.
