Scoring runs hasn’t been a problem for the Yankees getting to the Jays for 16 runs in the 3 game series sweep. The pitching matchup may appear to have the back numbers to support an under play, but Orioles starter Ubaldo Jiminez has struggled versus the Yankees in his last 2 giving up 11 runs over 9 innings. New York starter Hiroki Kuroda has had some success against the Orioles especially at home, but he has struggled at times in Yankee Stadium this season with an ERA approaching 5 runs per game. Laying the money on the Yankees is probably a solid bet, but the price is too high to make it a play for me so we’ll go with the value in the total line. Take Over 8.5 +100.
