Nestor Cortes did a great job in his first appearence allowing 3 hits and no runs in 4.1 innings pitched and striking out 5, the bullpen took it from there and hold the Blue Jays to zero.

Probable Pitcher: Gerrit Cole (0-0, 5.59 ERA)

Cole will be on the mound in the 2nd game of the series for the Pirates.

BETTING TRENDS

The total has gone UNDER in 8 of NY Yankees' last 9 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of NY Yankees' last 5 games on the road.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Detroit's last 5 games against NY Yankees.

Detroit are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games at home.

Prediction

Gerrit Cole was solid during his second outing of the season, but he couldn't get Vladimir Guerrero Jr. out, as the youngster racked up three hits off the ace. He has dominated the Tigers allowing only one run in his last 3 games against them and striking out 29. The Tigers have struggled at home losing 4 of their last 5 games. Take the Yankees.
