Vladimir Guerrero Jr. socked a pair of home runs as the Blue Jays fell to the Rays in extra innings on Monday. Guerrero slugged an absolute bomb to center field in the fourth inning which was measured at a whopping 461 feet and 117.4 mph off the bat. The other dinger wasn't as Statcast-sexy but came at a bigger time in the game, as he popped a game-tying, two-run shot in the eighth inning off of reliever Ryan Thompson. Vlad Jr. is now up to 15 long balls on the season, which ties him with Ronald Acuna Jr. for the major league lead.

Aaron Judge drew a game-winning, bases-loaded walk on Sunday as the Yankees completed a three-game sweep against the White Sox with a 5-4 victory in the series finale. Judge wasted no time, extending his on-base streak to 15 games with a first-inning single, and also came through with a bases-loaded walk against righty Liam Hendriks in the bottom of the ninth inning, sending the New York crowd home in walk-off fashion. The 29-year-old slugger has been at the epicenter of the Yankees' recent hot streak as they've won six consecutive games and 17 of their last 22 overall since April 30. He's hitting .308/.407/.571 with 24 runs scored, 12 homers and 26 RBI across 182 plate appearances.

The under is 6-1 in the last seven meetings between these two teams and is 5-0 in New York’s last five games overall because the pitching staff has been lights out. The under is also 5-0 in the Yankees’ last five home games, is 5-0-1 in their last six games when facing an opponent with a winning record and is 11-4-1 in their last 16 games after scoring five runs or more in their previous game.
