Today's starting pitchers have combined to allow only 5 home runs in more than 120 innings of work. Does that make 5 home runs in today's game the reverse lock of the week? Actually, Greg, is it too late to make that my prediction?

The Yankees send exciting rookie Chase Whitley to the mound with a chance to pull within a single (loss column) game of the 1st place Blue Jays.

The Blue Jays counter with team ace Mark Buehrle. The veteran lefty is enjoying another great season at 35. He's well on his way to a 14th consecutive year of 200 IP, 30+ starts. His WHIP, K/9, LD% and GB% are all within spitting distance of his career averages. His ERA and FIP are outperforming all expectations because he's basically decided not to give up any homeruns this season, allowing only 4 in 94IP.

Obviously, the Yankee hitters will have their work cut out for them.
