Yankees-Blue Jays series preview

The Blue Jays and Yankees kick off a three-game series in the Rogers Centre tonight. Ivan Nova will make his first major league start for the Yankees tonight, his third major league appearance.

Head to Head:
The Blue Jays lead the season series 5-4, and after this series these two teams face each other six more times in September.

Pitching Matchups:

Date: Yankees starters Blue Jays starters
Mon., 7:07 p.m. Ivan Nova (0-0, 0.00) B. Morrow (9-6, 4.45)
Tues., 7:07 p.m. D. Moseley (3-2, 4.76) M. Rzepczynski (1-1, 4.76)
Wed., 7:07 p.m. Phil Hughes (15-5, 3.90) Brett Cecil (10-6, 3.90)

Lineup Notes: The Yankees have benched Derek Jeter for the series opener, resulting in a weak bottom of the lineup.

This will be an interesting series. Nova makes an important start tonight, as he needs to get the Yankees going on the right foot to start this road trip. I think tonight will dictate whether the Yankees win or lose two out of three. Because I like the guy’s stuff, I say the win.
