Toronto won on Wednesday thanks to a solid start from Ryu. He went 6.2 innings, allowing just 1 unearned run with 7 strikeouts. From the plate they had 10 hits, and were 3-11 with runners in scoring position. Marcus Semien and Rowdy Tellez both hit solo home runs in the game. To start the year, the Blue Jays have a .224 team batting average with 13 home runs. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. leads the team with a .364 batting average.

The Blue Jays will start righty Ross Stripling in Wednesday’s contest. He has been hit hard in two starts, giving up 7 runs in 8.1 innings with 10 strikeouts. In his career against this Yankees lineup he has allowed a .287 batting average, with 2 home runs in 57 at bats.

The Yankees are 5-5 in their last 10 games, 5-5 on the run line, and the over is 4-6.

The Blue Jays are 4-6 in their last 10 games, 4-6 on the run line, and the under is 6-4.

The Yankees and Blue Jays have both had an up and down start to the season. One constant has been the bullpens, with both boasting ERA’s that rank in the top three in the majors. The run line is high because both starters have had rough starts to the season. However, I expect both to be on short leashes in the final game of this series. With both bullpens at full strength, we should see less runs than the line indicates. Give me the under.
