Yankees Accustomed to Losing When They Cross the Border

The Jays and Yankees will play a makeup game tonight as Toronto goes for the four-game sweep after their comeback, walk-off win yesterday afternoon on the conclusion of fan appreciation weekend. With just seven games left, the Jays are 5.5 games back of the Red Sox in the AL East and the Yankees are 5.5 games back of a wild-card spot – this is as much of a must-win game as you can get.

SHARK BITES
  • The Yankees are 0-8 SU and 1-7 ATS in their last eight games on the road against the Blue Jays.
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Yankees' last four games against the Blue Jays.
  • The Yankees are 2-9 SU in their last 11 games against their division.

J.A. Happ will get the rock for the Blue Jays as he goes for his 21st win. The Jays have won four straight games in Happ starts as the lefty is 3-0 with a 3.66 ERA in the month of September. J.A. has had an incredible season in his second stint with the Blue Jays and is one of two or three AL Cy Young candidates.

Luis Severino will start opposite Happ as he takes the hill as a starter for the first time since August 14, when he gave up seven earned runs to the Tampa Bay Rays. As a starter this year, Severino has given up a .340 batting average and a .976 OPS to opposing lineups. He has also been crushed by righties, which could spell trouble against the murderers row of righties possessed by the Jays.
