Yankees vs. Blue Jays preview: Looking for four in a row

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

The Yankees are in the midst of a rough stretch that sees them play away from Yankee Stadium much more often than not. Heading to Fenway and sweeping the Red Sox was a great beginning, but now they'll need to shift their focus to the Blue Jays north of the border. Can they keep up their streak of series wins?

Chase Whitley gets the first start of the three-game series. R.A. Dickey starts tonight's game for the Blue Jays, coming off a rough game against the Red Sox and two straight losses. Dickey got the best of the Yankees in their first meeting this year, so hopefully the offense that has been clicking so well the last few weeks can find a way to flip those results in their favor.

The lineup tonight is...something. Chase Headley must have done something terrible to make Joe Girardi mad, being forced to bat after Carlos Beltran and Stephen Drew. By the way, Beltran is batting cleanup and Drew is batting fifth. Mark Teixeira gets the night off and Chris Young is forced to ride the bench while we are treated to the sweet stylings of Beltran defense. I know you can't wait.
