New York Yankees's Latest Performance :
The Yankees have now won four games in a row as they are now 20 games above .500. The Yankees now have a record of 37-17 securing its 6th win in 8 games. As they get ready to play the Blue Jay on the road, the Yankees are 15-8 on the road this season. The Yankees are starting to like the best batting team that we saw at the start of the season, during this winning streak the Yankees put up 22 runs. The Yankees have one of the best batting lineups in the Major: Judge, Garder, and Stanton leading the way.
Giancarlo Stanton went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run. He has finally put an end to his 2 for 23 slump and hopes to carry over his batting performance on the road when they visit the Blue Jays. He’s hitting .248/.324/.476 with 12 home runs and 31 RBI in 54 games. I expect to play well against the Blue Jays. Miguel Andujar went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and an RBI double. He is an extra-base machine, has now collected 26 hits 18 of them doubles in 46 games played. He and Gleyber Torres have been instrumental to the Yankees’ success this season, pulling their weight at the bottom of the lineup to help complement the big hitter in the Yankees line up, the talent on this Yankees team is very high.
Pitching for the Yankees will be CC Sabathia. He took a no-decision his last time out, permitting five runs (three earned) and eight hits over five innings in the Yankees’ 6-5, 10-inning win over the Astros. He has a 3.73 ERA with a 1.26 WHIP on the season.
Toronto Blue Jays 's Latest Performance :
The Blue Jays are coming off a series loss against the Tigers as they will return home for a 6 game homestand and starting the homestand off by playing the Yankees in a short 2 games series. The Blue Jays are 13-16 when playing at home this season. The Blue Jays are currently on a 5 game losing streak they have lost for the 15th time over the last 19 games. The Blues are now a season-high eight games below .500 and they have just one series win since the start of May. Things won’t get any easier for them when the division leader the Yankees come to visit.
Yangervis Solarte went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored. He scored an RBI-double in the third frame and followed that up with a solo homer in the fifth. He has played almost every day this year at first base, second base, third base, shortstop, and outfield. He’s hit well, slashing .256/.316/.479 with 12 homers and 35 RBI in 237 plate appearances. He is the complete player for this Blue Jays team as he hoping that the Blues Jays will turn things around in a hurry for this not to become a lost year.
Pitching for the Blue Jays will be Marco Estrada. He is coming off a really rough month in the rotation. He wasn’t able to complete five innings in either of his past two starts, and he has not won a game since April 20. Estrada has lost each of his four starts with a 6.53 ERA over that span.
