The Line: Toronto Blue Jays +130 / New York Yankees -140 --- Over/Under: 9.5
The New York Yankees and Toronto Blue Jays meet Wednesday in MLB action at Rogers Centre.
The New York Yankees look to stay hot after winning seven of their last nine games. The Yankees have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The New York Yankees have won seven straight games when scoring more than two runs. Aaron Judge leads the Yankees with 59 hits and 41 RBI while Miguel Andujar and Giancarlo Stanton have combined for 110 hits and 54 RBI. Sonny Gray gets the ball, and he is 4-4 with a 5.50 ERA and 50 strikeouts this season. Gray is 4-3 with a 3.09 ERA and 49 strikeouts in his career against the Blue Jays.
The Toronto Blue Jays are getting desperate for a win after losing six of their last seven games. The Blue Jays have allowed 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 12 games. The Toronto Blue Jays have lost 19 of their last 21 games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Kevin Pillar leads the Blue Jays with 57 hits and 21 RBI while Yangervis Solarte and Justin Smoak have combined for 105 hits and 69 RBI. Sam Gaviglio gets the ball, and he is 2-1 with a 3.32 ERA and 22 strikeouts this season. This will be Gaviglio’s first career game against the Yankees.
The Yankees are 9-3 in their last 12 during game 2 of a series, 13-5 in their last 18 road games and 2-6 in Grays last 8 starts with 4 days of rest. The Blue Jays are 1-8 in their last 9 home games, 0-5 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series and 8-20 in their last 28 overall. The Yankees are 7-16 in the last 23 meetings in Toronto and the under is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings.
The Toronto Blue Jays are simply unbackable in their current form, as the losses are piling up quickly and they're giving up crooked numbers daily. Gaviglio has been OK in limited action, but he's also allowed 10 hits and seven runs in his last 12 innings. Gray has given up two or less runs in four of his last six starts and has an explosive offense consistently giving him run support. The New York Yankees and the cheap price has to be the play here against a Blue Jays club that's falling apart rather quickly.
