Masahiro Tanaka and the New York Yankees are making a late run at one of the AL Wild Card spots! Tanaka is 8-1 with a 2.34 ERA in 15 career starts on five days' rest! The Yankees have won 5 straight with Tanaka while the Bluejays will have an inconsistent R.A. Dickey on the mound. 41 year old R.A Dickey (9-13 4.43 ERA) will have Thole catching for him instead of Russell Martin and I feel it will play as an advantage for the Yankees today. Dickey is 0-2 versus the Yankees in his last two previous starts this season.
The Yankees will have the edge in the pitching matchup and I look for them to improve to 12-1 in Tanaka's last 13 starts at Yankee Stadium. My simulations are giving the Yankees a 70% chance of winning today.
Best of luck!
