Blue Jays Continue to Strikeout at Impressive Pace

The Blue Jays will take on Michael Pineda and the New York Yankees tonight, a day after they had the bats taken out of their hands by rookie Chad Green. If the Bronx Bombers continue to beat up on teams in their division, they have a shot to make it to the postseason.

SHARK BITES
  • Every batter in Toronto’s lineup struck out at least once Monday night.
  • The Yankees are 5-1 on the runline in their last six games.
  • The Blue Jays are 9-3 in their last 12 games at Yankee Stadium.

Pineda has been incredibly streaky this year and seems to be in a funk. He has given up four or more runs in four of his last seven games and has an ERA this season of 5.07. The big righty has only pitched once against the Jays this year and hurled 6.0 innings of three-run baseball but has an opportunity to take advantage of a Toronto team that has become hack-happy.

Marco Estrada gets the rock for the Jays tonight as he continues to be one of the most consistent starters in the majors. He has not given up more than three runs since mid-May and owns an ERA under three. In his two starts against the Yanks this year, Estrada is 2-0 with an ERA of 1.80.

The Jays have been striking out at an alarming rate and Pineda is one of the premier strikeout specialists in the league. The Dominican hurler makes for a strong play in big DFS tournaments tonight.
