The Yankees have now won 11 straight games and 5 of their last 5 games on the road. They're the hottest offense right now and one of the best defenses as well. The Blue Jays have scored an average of only 2 runs per game in their last 4 games and will send Kikuchi to the mound who has been shaky this season. Take the Yankees to win.
