New York Can Clinch in Yankees vs Blue Jays Tuesday Matchup
New York missed out on clinching the AL East, falling 3-2 in 10 innings to Toronto on Monday night. They’ll give it another shot in the Yankees vs Blue Jays Tuesday night meeting, currently holding a 7.5 game over Toronto with 9 to play.
Aaron Judge will also get another chance to tie former Yankee Roger Maris for the most HRs in American League history. Judge is still stuck on 60 after going 1-3 with 2 walks in the series opener. Judge isn’t seeing a ton of pitches right now, as evidenced by the fact that he still has a .500 OBP over the past week. Judge has now gone 6 games without hitting a long ball.
Vlad Guerrero, Jr. hit the game-winning single in the 10th inning to pick up the victory. The Blue Jays’ AL East title hopes are still alive at least temporarily, but Monday’s victory also kept them atop the wild card race.
Jameson Taillon (13-5, 3.90 ERA) takes on Jose Berrios (11-6, 5.27) in a game two in which the offshore sportsbooks are calling a coin flip moneyline game. The Yankees have won five of Taillon’s last six starts although the Blue Jays have won six of Berrios’ last seven.
