Game Thread: Yankees @ Blue Jays 8/26

The New York Yankees and the Toronto Blue Jays start their three game set this week at Rogers Centre tonight at 7:05 pm ET. The pitching match up is Phil Hughes for the Yankees and RA Dickey for the Blue Jays and it can be seen on the YES network and MLB TV. No one is happier right now about traveling to our neighbor to the north more than the Yankees right now. We have only lost one game against Toronto all season long, albeit that loss came in Rogers Centre with Phil Hughes on the mound, and have beat the Jays all 10 times they traveled to New York this season. Phil Hughes has now gone eight straight starts without any kind of a decision and looks to improve on his 4-12 record for 2013.  RA Dickey looked solid his last time out until he surrendered that game winning home run to Alfonso Soriano so maybe we can get to him early and often tonight.

Here is the Yankees lineup

Brett Gardner CF
Derek Jeter SS
Robinson Cano 2B
Alfonso Soriano LF
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Curtis Granderson DH
Lyle Overbay 1B
Ichiro Suzuki RF
Austin Romine C
