The Yankees are playing well right now but they have to face one of the best pitchers in the AL, Roy Halladay. Halladay has a mediocore ERA this year but if you look at his periphereals you can tell he's still the same pitcher. This is a big start for Pettitte. He hasn't been doing that well and his ERA has jumped all the way up to 4.27 because of it.
- Andy Pettitte- Pettitte has had a couple bad starts recently and needs to pull it together. Unfortunately, the Blue Jays hit very well against lefties so Pettitte could be in trouble.
- Roy Halladay- Halladay has outperformed his periphereals by far and is one of the best pitchers in the league. The Yankees hit well against righties though and could score some runs off of him.
- Bobby Abreu- Abreu has been insanely inconsistent this season but he`s played fairly well lately and he`s batting .279/.368/.434 against right handed pitchers so look for him to have a good game
- Alex Rodriguez- A-Rod is only four HR's away from #500. Its shocking that with all the publicity he`s gotten this season I`ve heard so little about him hitting #500.
Yankees win 5-3. The Yankees will score a few runs off of Halladay but he will get knocked out after six innings because of his pitch count. Pettitte will pitch well going seven innings allowing two runs. We will also finally see Edwar pitch.
