Blue Jays Preview
The Toronto Blue Jays are 12-9 this season and they have lost four of their last six games. Toronto won Game 1 of this series by a score of 6-1 on Friday. The Toronto pitching staff has a 4.65 ERA, a 1.31 WHIP, and a .247 opponent batting average this year. The Blue Jays offense has scored 95 runs with a .259 batting average and a .332 on base percentage. Matt Chapman is batting .360 with five home runs and 17 RBI’s for the Blue Jays. The projected starting pitcher for Toronto is Kevin Gausman, who is 1-2 with a 3.65 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP over 24.2 innings pitched this season.
The New York Yankees are 13-8 this season and they have won five of their last seven games. New York won Game 2 of this series by a score of 3-2 on Saturday afternoon. The New York pitching staff has a 3.11 ERA, a 1.12 WHIP, and a .214 opponent batting average. The Yankees offense has scored 92 runs with a .229 batting average and a .313 on base percentage this season. Aaron Judge is batting .257 with six home runs and 11 RBI’s for the Yankees. The projected starting pitcher for New York is Clarke Schmidt, who is 0-1 with an 8.79 ERA and a 1.88 WHIP over 14.1 innings pitched this year.
Toronto is 5-1 in their last 6 games following a loss and 7-3 in their last 10 road games. The over is 6-0 in Toronto’s last 6 Sunday games. New York is 6-0 in their last 6 game three’s of a series and 8-2 in their last 10 Sunday games. The under is 16-5 in New York’s last 21 home games. The under is 7-1 in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings.
Both of these teams have won one game in the series and will be looking for the series win here. New York has played well recently, but will be starting Clarke Schmidt, who has not been very good this year. The Blue Jays will start Kevin Gausman, who allowed seven earned runs over 4.2 innings against Houston in his last start. Gausman pitched well in his first three starts of the season, but it will be interesting to see how he responds after his last performance. I think we are going to see a higher scoring game, but I like the Yankees to get the win.
