Bettors can also wager on the game's spread with the current runline odds standing at -160 for the Blue Jays +1.5 runs and +140 for the Yankees -1.5 runs.

Livestream the Toronto Blue Jays, including Blue Jays Central pre-game. He's now 4-for-38 this season at the Stadium. The Yankees, on the other hand, are 9-9 SU and 8-9 ATS.

Aaron Sanchez, Thursday's starter for the Blue Jays, has held right-handed hitters to a.212 batting average over his five-year career, including a.128 clip this season. Stroman is 0-1 with a 7.98 ERA and 16 strikeouts. Russell Martin and Kendrys Morales started the fourth with doubles that made it 4-3.

Yankees: LHP Jordan Montgomery (1-0, 4.70) is unbeaten in his last eight starts and has lost once in his previous 12 starts dating back to August 5, 2017.

Leading 3-2 in the seventh, NY slugger Aaron Judge went deep to left off Toronto reliever Tyler Clippard to extend the Yanks' lead to 4-2.

The New York starter retired the side in the first inning. The bullpen has a 4.34 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 13.4 K/9. Entering the Boston-Oakland game late Friday night, the Yankees already were seven games behind the Red Sox, off to the best start in franchise history.

TESS is an Earth-orbiting instrument meant to spot faraway planets circling some 200,000 stars within 300 light-years of Earth. But if TESS doesn't launch by April 26, it may be bumped for 45 days for the launch of NASA's InSight Mars Mission.

Prince death investigation criminal charging decision to be announced
He gave Johnson 15 percocets, Metz said, which were all "because Prince wanted to protect his privacy". The synthetic opioid , for which Prince had no prescription, is 50 times more powerful than heroin.

Teoscar Hernandez, another promising player in the Toronto organization, homered and drove in three runs, and Yangervis Solarte also connected for the Blue Jays, who have won nine of their last 11 games. Former Yankee Tyler Clippard hung a 3-2 splitter over the heart of the plate, and Judge blasted a 394-foot moon shot dinger into the left-field seats.

But while Spector thinks that a Judge-Stanton swap would work, Randy Miller of NJ Advance Media believes that the Yankees should drop the four-time All-Star to the No. 5 spot.

Gray allowed five runs on five hits and four walks in 3 1/3 innings after talking about adjustments to his delivery earlier this week. Two timely groundouts later, a 90 miles per hour fastball would trickle away off the glove of Gary Sanchez for a passed ball, scoring Maile, trimming the Yankee lead to 2-1.

Blue Jays hitters have slashed.244/.335/.431 on their way to 6.0 runs scored per game in 2018, including 4.2 runs per game against divisional foes and 8.4 per game over the team's last five contests (4-1 SU). With manager John Gibbons giving the struggling Randal Grichuk the night off, he opted to keep the strong-armed Hernandez in spacious left field and send Curtis Granderson over to right field.

SEATTLE - Charlie Morton pitched seven innings of three-hit ball, Jose Altuve hit a three-run double and the Houston Astros beat the Seattle Mariners 9-2 on Thursday.
