The Jays downward spiral continued last night with a 3-1 loss against the Yankees which was the 7th loss in the last 10 games. The offense has been the issue with all 7 losses coming when they scored 2 or fewer runs. They’ve relied on the long ball for most of the season and the power numbers have dropped significantly in June. They’ll face rookie Chase Whitley tonight and he’s been a pleasant surprise with a 2.41 ERA in 6 starts over 33 2/3 innings allowing only one home run. Toronto will go with Mark Buehrle who wasn’t as sharp in his latest with Orioles getting to him for 4 runs in 6 1/3 innings. He has been exceptional on the road with a 2.01 ERA in 7 starts. Buehrle faced the Yankees 4 times last season with mixed results registering 2 quality starts. However the Jays did lose all 4 games and the wily veteran is 1-10 in 16 starts against New York with a 6.02 ERA in his career. Take NY Yankees -109.
