New York Yankees at Toronto Blue Jays: Luis Severino vs. Marcus Stroman

The Yankees aim for the series win with Luis Severino on the mound.

Yesterday's win against the Blue Jays was quite fun. The Yankees seemed to have everything working. There was good pitching, solid defense, and a whole lot of home runs. How about we do that again today? Leaving Toronto with a series victory would be pretty great.

In order to do that, the Yankees are sending Luis Severino to the mound. He's been their best pitcher all season, with a 2.93 ERA (3.06 FIP) to prove it. He squares off against another young starter, Marcus Stroman. The Jays right-hander owns a 3.28 ERA (3.65 FIP) over 68.2 innings pitched. The Bombers tagged Stroman for five runs last month. I, for one, would sign up for a repeat performance.

First pitch is scheduled for 1:07 PM. You can follow along locally on YES or MLB Network.
