8/31 Yankees Game Preview vs. Toronto Blue Jays

The New York Yankees and the Toronto Blue Jays will play in the finale of their three game set in Rogers Centre this week on the final day of August Baseball. The Yankees have played well against the Blue Jays this series and have played well in the past few weeks as the team continues its run towards the postseason. Today the Yankees will send Brandon McCarthy to the mound to face off with the Blue Jays JA Happ. The game will be played at 1:07 pm ET and can be seen on the YES Network, MLB TV, and can be heard on the radio with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman on WFAN.

McCarthy has maybe his worst start in a Yankees uniform last time out but still kept the team in the game against the Detroit Tigers. McCarthy allowed five runs and nine hits in 6.1 innings as he took his third loss in a Yankees uniform. McCarthy is now 5-3 with a 2.47 ERA with the Yankees since being acquired from the Arizona Diamondbacks on July 8.

Happ is coming off a start in which he allowed three runs over six innings against the Boston Red Sox last time out. All three runs came in the fifth inning and came off home runs by Dustin Pedroia and rookie Mookie Betts.

The Yankees return home on Tuesday to host the Boston Red Sox at Yankee Stadium so act now and get your Yankees tickets right here on the blog. Also we are less than a week away from Derek Jeter Day at Yankee Stadium so be sure to grab some tickets to that as well if you possibly can. BUY NOW. 

Go Yankees!!
