Game Preview: New York Yankees @ Toronto Blue Jays 5/6

The New York Yankees have one more game out on the road inside the Rogers Centre before returning home to the Bronx and Yankee Stadium, that game is tonight. Tonight the Yankees face off with the Toronto Blue Jays one more time with a familiar face on the mound in Mark Buehrle. Buehrle has nightmares about pitching against the Yankees, and for good reason, and the starter for New York, CC Sabathia, hopes to make this more like a recurring nightmare tonight in Toronto. The game will be played at 7:07 pm ET and can be seen on the YES Network and MLB TV.

  • Sabathia is still winless this season despite pitching well enough to win in more than one of his starts including his last against the Boston Red Sox. Sabathia pitched six innings giving up two runs and seven hits in Fenway Park but walked away with a no decision in a game that the Yankees eventually won 3-2.

  • Buehrle has had two straight bad starts this season not making it out of the sixth inning in either of them. Buehrle has a 3-2 record with a 6.75 ERA and has the demons in the back of his head that he named New York lining things up for a great night for the Yankees offense.

As long as Buehrle is on the mound the Yankees have a chance to win no matter what the score so you really have to feel good about getting a victory tonight. Buehrle is due to beat the Yankees, don’t get me wrong, but I just can’t see him collecting tonight after the season he has had to date. It seems like Toronto placed Buehrle in the 4th spot of their rotation simply to miss the Yankees in the first series of the season but he could not miss the Bronx Bombers this time around, make him pay. Go Yankees!
