The Blue Jays (65-79) are the last team the Yankees (93-52) will face at home until the Boston series next weekend. It’s only a two-game series, and it will be the last meeting between these two teams this season.
The Yanks are 11-5 against Toronto this season, and are 5-2 against them at home. They most recently split a four-game series two weekends ago.
|Date:||Blue Jays starters||Yankees starters|
|Tues., 7:05 p.m.||Roy Halladay (14-9, 3.03)||Sergio Mitre (3-2, 7.02)|
|Wed., 7:05 p.m.||TBA||Chad Gaudin (1-0, 3.42)|
Andy Pettitte is missing his start tomorrow due to shoulder fatigue, so Gaudin will get the nod. Hopefully Gaudin can build off his last start.
The Yankees just got embarrassed against Baltimore, but won yesterday against the Angels in classic 2009 form. Let’s see if the two ejections yesterday really were the spark that this team needs heading into October.
Remaining opponents weighted winning percentage: 51.4 percent
