Tonight we have the Yankees taking on the Blue Jays in Toronto. The Yankees enter this game on a bit of a roll of late, going 8-2 in their last 10 and winning 7 straight. They currently sit atop in the AL wildcard and will look to further secure that lead tonight. The Blue Jays enter this game needing to win as they currently sit 1 game back for the second wildcard spot. They'll look to pick up a couple wins in this series before they take on a weak Orioles team to end their season.
Gerrit Cole (16-8, 3.08 ERA) will be on the mound for the Yankees when they take on the Blue Jays. Cole enters this game with a 1.04 WHIP and 3.08 XFIP. This season he carries a 35.1% strikeout rate along with a 6.1% walk rate. Cole as been great this year for the Yankees, he's been a top pitcher all year with his elite strikeout stuff and his ability to keep the walks down. He's been vulnerbale to some left handed power but other than that he has been able to induce poor and soft contact and miss barrels. Over the season he has handled this Blue Jays lineup fairly well, he will look to continue that trend tonight.
Jose Berrios (12-9, 3.48 ERA) will toe the rubber for the Blue Jays when they take on the Yankees. Berrios enters this game with a 1.08 WHIP and 3.83 XFIP. This season he carries a 26.2% strikeout rate along with a 6.1% walk rate. Berrios has been good this season although his numbers have dipped since being traded to Toronto. Berrios has been very vulnerable to left handed hitters this season, giving up some premium contact and power in the split, he has handled right handed hitters very well, inducing soft and poor contact in the split. He will look to slow down this Yankees team and get his team back in the win column.
I'll once again be going with the Yankees in this one. Both these pitchers should be able to handle each respected lineup. I'll be riding with the better bullpen as the Yankees have the upper hand in that matchup.
