AL East Showdown on Tap as NY Yankees visit Toronto
The New York Yankees will attempt to maintain their winning allure and will look to land back-to-back victories as they get ready to resume hostilities with the Toronto Blue Jays. The two AL East Division rivals are scheduled to compete in the final instalment of an abbreviated two-game series with the contest set to be broadcasted by the MLB network Wednesday night at 7:07 p.m. ET and live from the Rogers Centre in Toronto, ON.
Game Time: 7:07 PM ET
Location: Rogers Centre, Toronto, Ontario
Moneyline: NY Yankees -145
Total: 9.5 Under -115
The two AL East foes have already met twice in a four-game series back in late March north of the border and in the Bronx back in mid-April. The two split the first set and the Yankees took three of four in the second in the Bronx. The Yankees, who saw their five-game winning streak snapped by Detroit on Sunday, rebounded with a 7-2 win in the opener of their series against Toronto. Aaron Hicks and Miguel Andujar accounted for all 7 runs in the win.
The Yankees, who are in the midst of an eleven-game road trip, enter this affair as a -145/ road favorite, according to Bovada Sportsbook, with the total sitting on 9.5 runs. RH Sonny Gray (4-4, 5.50 ERA) will attempt to notch back-to-back victories as he takes the hill for the Yankees while Sam Gaviglio (2-1, 3.32 ERA) will look to recover from latest loss as he gets the call in the finale for the Blue Jays.
After suffering from one of his worst losses of the season back on May 26, Gray rebounded with an impressive outing last Friday. The 28-year old allowed a run across four hits with no walks and seven strikeouts in six innings in a 4-1 win against Baltimore. Gray didn’t factor in the decision in his lone start against the Blue Jays on April 20. The Tennessee native is 4-3 with a 3.09 ERA in 10-career starts against Toronto.
Gaviglio, who made his debut as a starter for the Blue Jays back on May 19 in which he threw six scoreless innings, lost for the first time of this season in his last trip to the mound. The 28-year old, who will make his fourth start of the season, allowed 4 runs (two earned) across 7 hits with no walks and 4 strikeouts in 6 innings in a 6-4 loss to Boston last Wednesday. The Oregon native will face the Yankees for the time in his career.
