After tying or defeating their opponents in four of their last five series, it appeared as though the Blue Jays were beginning to turn their season around. However, they lost the final two games against a beatable Tigers team and the first of two against the equally lowly New York Mets. They’ll be in tough against the Yankees, who have dominated Toronto of late, and will send second-year starter Sam Gaviglio to the mound to face New York.
The Yankees will counter with Sonny Gray, who has struggled to a 5.44 ERA through 16 starts this season. Gray has walked 36 batters in 82 1/3 innings over those 16 starts, which puts him on pace to have the worst walk stats in a season of his career. Despite Gray’s inconsistency, the Yankees’ offense will no doubt be in full swing. Don’t miss Friday’s offensive output. Game time is 7:07 PM ET.
