Andujar hits first career grand slam
The Yankees trailed 1-0 through six innings, but after loading the bases in the seventh rookie Miguel Andujar connected on his first career grand slam to put the visitors up 4-1. New York went on to win by a count of 7-2. Andujar finished the contest 2-for-3 with the four RBIs. Giancarlo Stanton went 2-for-5 with a double. Aaron Hicks was 1-for 3 with a home run, two runs and three RBIs. Didi Gregorious scored two runs. CC Sabathia recorded the win on the mound as he gave up two earned runs on three hits with six strikeouts and a walk over seven innings.
Blue Jays hit two solo home runs in defeat
Teoscar Hernandez and Kevin Pillar both hit a solo home run to account for the only runs by the Blue Jays in the series-opening loss. It was the ninth home run for Hernandez, while Pillar now has five. The only other hit by Toronto on the day was a single by Yangervis Solarte. Seunghwan Oh took the loss in relief as he gave up the grand slam, surrendering three runs while also allowing an inherited runner of starting pitching Marco Estrada to score.
MLB Betting Trends
The Yankees are 37-16 in their last 53 games overall. New York is 36-16 in its last 52 Wednesday games.
The Blue Jays are 1-9 in their last 10 home games. The under is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings in Toronto.
Gray seems to be getting a better feel for his pitches and has developed a repoire with Yankees backup catcher Austin Romine, seeming to be more confident throwing down in the zone as opposed to when Gary Sanchez is catching him. Sanchez could possibly DH tonight, but even if he is out of the lineup Romine has provided a fantastic bat as a backup catcher thus far this season to go with a solid skill set behind the dish. Anyway, Gaviglio has been good but the Blue Jays aren't very good. I'm going to take New York to win a second day in a row.
