The Toronto Blue Jays and the New York Yankees will meet up on the MLB diamond to finish their series Sunday.
In the Friday opener, the Jays eked out a 4-3 victory. On Saturday, the Yankees evened it up with a 7-2 win.
For the Sunday game, the Blue Jays will go with Trent Thornton to start. Across his 144.1 innings and 5-9 record this year, Thornton has a 4.93 ERA with 138 Ks and 57 BBs.
Over on the Yankees’ side, they will send out Luis Severino. Severino looked solid in his first start of the year, going four scoreless innings against the Angels Tuesday.
The Blue Jays are 1-9 in their last 10 Sunday games and 4-1 in Thornton’s last five Sunday starts. Toronto is 0-6 in Thornton’s last six starts and 0-5 in his last five road starts versus a team with a winning record.
Meanwhile, the Yankees are 20-6 in their last 26 in game three of a series and 6-2 in their last eight Sunday games. The over is 19-7-1 in New York’s last 27 Sunday games and 31-15-1 in their last 47 in game three of a series.
Thornton has posted some pretty nice numbers over his last three appearances. In two relief outings and one start, He’s given up just two earned across seven hits in 14.2 innings of work. He’s just 1-2 over his last eight games though.
All things considered, with the thick line on the Yanks I think it’s worth taking the Jays here with Thornton on the mound.
