The Blue Jays and Yankees will meet on Wednesday night in the second of their 3 game set at Yankee Stadium. On Tuesday night in the series opener the Blue Jays will have knuckleballer R.A. Dickey match up against Yankee hard-thrower Nathan Eovaldi.
In mid-April the Blue Jays took two of three games from the Yankees at Rogers Centre.
Toronto Blue Jays
Toronto has the bats to compete with the best teams in baseball. Despite this the Blue Jays are 15th in total runs (186) and they are hitting .236 as a team which ranks 22nd.
While the trio of Josh Donaldson, Jose Bautista, and Edwin Encarnacion have combined for 30 home runs none of them are batting above .250. Troy Tulowitzki, a career .293 hitter is only batting .205.
It’s only a matter of time before the big bats wake up. Michael Saunders has been a bright spot hitting .322.
Marco Estrada is 1-2 with a 2.61 ERA in eight starts. Estrada has been a victim of low run-support.
The Blue Jays are only 3-5 when Estrada starts despite his good start.
Estrada is 0-1 on the road, with an ERA that sits at 3.60.
New York Yankees
Jacoby Ellsbury has been one of the hottest Yankee over the last few games. Ellsbury is hitting .355 over the last eight games. Carlos Beltran has been burning hot over the last week.
The 39-year-old is 9-of-18 over the last four games. On the season, Beltran is hitting .274 with nine home runs and 27 RBI’s.
Ivan Nova is looking to make his fourth straight good start. In three starts Nova has given up one run in each start. In the last start Nova was magnificent going six innings and allowing only four hits and no walks.
Joe Girardi decided to take him out despite Nova having only thrown 62 pitches to go to his big arms in relief. The Yankees hung on to win the game 4-1 and Nova got the win.
Nova has only walked three batters in 30.1 innings this season.

4* Free MLB Betting Prediction: New York ML
The goal for Yankees starter is to go six innings and that’s what Nova will do.
MLB Baseball Free Score Prediction: New York 5 – Toronto 4
The Blue Jays have an edge with the bats but Nova has been terrific in three short starts for New York. I expect him to give the Yankees 5-6 innings of three earned runs.
The dynamic trio of Betances, Miller, and Chapman will shut Toronto down.
