Drawing the start for New York will be Sonny Gray (9-11, 3.38 ERA), while the Blue Jays turn to Joe Biagini (3-11, 5.33). Gray boasts a 1.17 WHIP with 147 strikeouts in 151 1/3 innings. He allowed five earned runs on six hits with four strikeouts and two walks over four innings in a 6-4 home loss to the Orioles his last start. Gray has a 3.26 ERA in 66 1/3 road innings. Biagini has a 1.40 WHIP with 91 strikeouts over 109 2/3 innings. He gave up six runs (four earned) on five hits with no strikeouts and one walk in 1 1/3 innings during a 13-7 loss at the Twins his last start. Biagini has a 5.04 hone ERA in 55 1/3 innings.

The Yankees are 85-68 overall and 39-38 on the road, while the Blue Jays come in at 72-82 and 41-38 at home. Toronto has won seven of the last 10 meetings and the over-under is 4-5-1.

On Friday night, the Blue Jays rolled to an 8-1 victory as Ryan Goins hit a grand slam and also executed a hidden-ball trick in the infield to record an out. Teoscar Hernandez went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored. Jose Bautista walked twice, scored two runs and drove in one. Russell Martin added a two-run homer. Marco Estrada threw seven innings of one-run ball to get the win. Aaron Judge was 2-for-2 with a home run and two walks to pace the Yankees. Masahiro Tanaka surrendered eight runs (seven earned) in 5 2/3 innings to take the loss.

Bet on Yankees vs. Blue Jays

Biagini has struggled on the mound this year aside from a couple random stretches of excellence. Don't expect him to shut down the Yankees lineup. Conversely, Gray is typically a very solid pitcher with his last blip out of the ordinary. Expect New York to bounce back with a victory.
