The New York Yankees host the Toronto Blue Jays in the final day of the MLB regular season.
The Toronto Blue Jays are looking to end the regular season on an up note after dropping three straight following a 2-1 loss at the New York Yankees Saturday. The Blue Jays offense stalled and that cost a solid performance on the mound. Jays starter Marcus Stroman allowed both runs on six hits and a walk over four frames to absorb the loss despite five relievers putting up zeros. Toronto mustered six hits and a pair of base on balls with Josh Donaldson cracking a sacrifice fly that scored Ezquiel Carrera. The Toronto Blue Jays end the regular season at the New York Yankees with Brett Anderson on the hill on Sunday. Anderson has gone 2-2 in six starts with the Blue Jays with a 6.04 ERA and 1.59 WHIP.

The New York Yankees were hoping to sweep the Toronto Blue Jays and force a playoff with the Red Sox for the American League East crown. The Yankees will have to settle for their 5th win in six contests after Saturday’s win and Boston clinching the division with their win versus the Astros. Veteran CC Sabathia tossed 5.2 innings of shutout baseball to improve to 14-5. The Yanks did their damage on seven hits and four free passes with Aaron Judge clubbing his 52nd homer while Starlin Castro singled in Didi Gregorius. The New York Yankees are sending Jordan Montgomery to the bump in the final game of the year against the Toronto Blue Jays. Overall, Montgomery has logged a 9-7 record with a 3.96 ERA.
The over is 12-3 in Toronto last 15 Sunday games and Toronto are 4-9 in their last 13 Sunday games. New York are 13-3 in their last 16 home games and New York are 19-7 in their last 26 overall while New York are 19-7 in their last 26 games on grass. Toronto are 3-7 in the last 10 meetings in New York.
I’d be very careful backing either squad in a meaningless game to end the season for obvious reasons…
