On Saturday, the New York Yankees will continue a three-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays. On Friday night the Yankees endured a 5-3 loss against the Blue Jays, which should motivate New York to win their next game of the series even more so. This was the first game in this three game series, and it brought the Blue Jays within 2.5 games of the Yankees for the American League East.
Although the Blue Jays are looking to close that gap even more on Saturday, the Yankees are hoping that former Blue Jay, A.J. Burnett can lead their pitching rotation and put an end to their temporary success. Burnett is coming off of his best start of the year, but it was also his first loss of the season.
Since becoming a Yankee, A.J. Burnett has never had an easy time when pitching against the Toronto Blue Jays. He has an especially hard time against them since Toronto’s, Jose Bautista is the leading American League hitter. As of now Burnett is 1-4 with a 6.50 ERA in eight starts.
The New York Yankees will continue this series by hosting their next game at Yankee Stadium against the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday, April 20.
