The New York Yankees look for a win after winning 10 of their last 12 games. The Yankees have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last seven games. The Yankees have won eight of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs. DJ LeMahieu leads the Yankees with 62 hits and 24 RBI while Luke Voit and Gio Urshela have combined for 90 hits and 76 RBI. Gerrit Cole gets the ball, and he is 6-3 with a 3.00 ERA and 87 strikeouts this season. Cole is 2-0 with a 3.50 ERA and 24 strikeouts in his career against the Blue Jays.
The Toronto Blue Jays need a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Blue Jays have scored 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Blue Jays have split their last six games when scoring four or more runs. Lourdes Gurriel Jr. leads the Blue Jays with 56 hits and 30 RBI while Teoscar Hernandez and Randal Grichuk have combined for 104 hits and 62 RBI. Tanner Roark gets the ball, and he is 2-2 with a 6.41 ERA and 35 strikeouts this season. Roark is 1-2 with a 5.75 ERA and 19 strikeouts in his career against the Yankees.
The Yankees are 31-15 in their last 46 during game 2 of a series, 5-12 in their last 17 road games and 10-1 in their last 11 overall. The Blue Jays are 6-2 in their last 8 during game 2 of a series, 0-4 in their last 4 games as an underdog and 1-6 in their last 7 overall. The over is 5-1 in Yankees last 6 overall. The over is 5-2 in Blue Jays last 7 Tuesday games. The over is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.
Gerrit Cole has allowed two earned runs and nine hits in his last 20 innings while Tanner Roark has allowed 12 runs and 15 hits in his last 12.1 innings. Cole is looking more and more like the pitcher we're used to seeing, as he has an ERA of 0.90 this month. Roark has been batting practice for much of the season. Only one way to go here. Give me the Yankees and the RL to shave down the ML price.
