Blue Jays’ Borucki struggles vs. Royals

Ryan Borucki struggled through four innings against the Royals on Tuesday, giving up four runs and walked four. He struck out just one and allowed six hits in addition to the walks, so it could have been even uglier. It's the first time that Borucki has had a rough outing against a team other than the juggernaut Red Sox. Given that he's struck out just five and walked seven in three starts this month, the bloom is off the rose.

Yankees’ Happ allows one hit over seven scoreless innings

J.A. Happ walked four but gave up just one single over seven shutout innings Tuesday in the Yankees’ 4-1 victory over the Rays. The four free passes Happ handed out were more than he issued over his last four starts combined, but a C.J. Cron single with one out in the fourth inning was the only base knock he permitted. Over his first 19 innings in pinstripes across three starts, Happ has given up just eight hits and four runs, boasting a 1.89 ERA and 0.74 WHIP. He’ll take on his former team, the Blue Jays, on Sunday at Yankee Stadium.

MLB Betting Trends

Toronto

The Blue Jays are 4-0 in Borucki’s last four road starts and 4-0 in his last four outings overall.

New York

The Yankees have won nine of 13 overall but they’re still just 3-7 in their last 10 games versus the division.

Prediction:

I love the under with Hunter Wendlestedt behind home plate today. In the 23 games he’s been behind the dish this season, the under is 14-7 (66.7%). The under is also 5—0 in Wendelstedt’s last five games behind home plate in games involving Toronto and is 18-6-2 in his last 26 games behind the dish on Sunday.

 

The Pick: Blue Jays/Yankees under 8.5
