7* Saturday MLB NYY/TOR
Toronto vs. NY Yankees,
04/27/2013 16:05 EDT,
Score: 4 - 5
Total: -115/+8½ Under
New York & Toronto under 8.5
The New York Yankees host the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday afternoon in game three of a four-game set. New York won game two in the series on Friday, 6-4.
We cashed a ticket on the under in game one of this series, and we’ll go right back to that well in this one.
The Yankees have struggled versus left-handed starts this season, hitting just .209 in games started by a left-handed starter, and scoring only 3.6 runs per game against them.
Expect the Yankees to have some trouble with J.A. Happ on this day. Happ pitched so well in spring training that he earned himself a spot in the rotation and relegated last year’s opening day starter, Ricky Romero, to the minor leagues.
Happ limited Baltimore to one run on four hits over six solid innings in his last outing.
The Yankees counter with ace C.C. Sabathia. He’s had little trouble with the Blue Jays in his career, posting a 2.98 ERA against them.
Sabathia has dominated the Jays’ two biggest bats, with Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion a combined 9-for-51 against him.
In two starts versus Toronto in 2012, Sabathia posted a 1.38 ERA.
The under is 7-1-1 in New York’s last nine home games. Take the UNDER.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
