On Deck: Yankees at Blue Jays

According to oddsmakers from online sports book, the Yankees are -143 money line favorites versus the Blue Jays, who have odds of +120 to pull off the upset in Toronto.

Among the songs on the playlist was Eye of the Tiger, the Survivor ditty made famous by the Rocky III movie in which Sylvester Stallone once again picks himself up off the canvas to battle his way to boxing glory. It was his third consecutive start completing seven innings. "This is who we have and we have to get the job done". He allowed five hits and three walks, while striking out six against the Yankees and has posted a 1.71 ERA in his last 21 innings. "Really his last three starts".

Estrada was dominant and his trademark changeup was precise.

NY (59-52) meanwhile has dropped five of its last seven games.

"I was trying to put together a good at-bat", said Pillar. "I was locating the fastball early on and some decent changeups in there".

"I thought we had a chance to win but they just blew it open there", said Gibbons.

Forced from Tuesday's loss to Toronto after three innings, Sabathia returned to NY for an MRI on Wednesday.

Smith, who last pitched for Toronto on July 28, makes his return to the majors after making three appearances at Buffalo this month. He was lying motionless on one of the clubhouse couches. The big switch hitting DH was scratched due to illness, joining outfielder Nori Aoki in that sick bay With Morales out, Bautista moved to DH and Carrera had the starting call in right The Jays have a 7-6 record versus the Yankees this season and improved to 32-19 against the Bronx Bombers dating back to 2015.

With Gray set to face Marco Estrada in the pitching matchup, the over/under now sits at 8.5 runs.

Carrera was off and running when the next batter, Ryan Goins, beat one into the dirt and the ball rolled just a few feet from home plate.

Ezequiel Carrera scores ahead of the tag by catcher Gary Sanchez during the second inning. When the Jays veteran hit a solo shot in the seventh to up the lead to 4-0, it was his third in the past four games and two in a row against the Yankees.

0-4 with 2 walks and a K in a 4-0 loss to Toronto. The first play of Gray's Yankees career was a fielding error by Chase Headley.

Going 3-4 on the trip was not an ideal way to head into a crucial three-game home series against the AL East-leading Red Sox, who were off. Earlier in the season, Sabathia sat out three weeks because of a strained left hamstring.

The Blue Jays went up 2-0 in the third on a walk and stolen base by Bautista, and a single by Josh Donaldson.

Estrada gathered himself to get Brett Gardner to fly out lazily to left and then Aaron Hicks on a pop up to first.

After Estrada worked around a two-out double by rookie Garrett Cooper in the second, Gray allowed an unearned run in the bottom half.
