Ryley's Daily Baseball Pick: May 2nd
The New York Yankees are visiting Toronto to take on the Blue Jays in game one of a three game series.
These divisional foes are two of the top teams in the American League. The Yankees will have left-hander Jordan Montgomery taking the mound. Montgomery has an ERA of 2.70 this season, through 20 innings pitched. In two games last season against Toronto, Montgomery gave up eight runs in ten innings. The Blue Jays had an on-base percentage of .339 against left handed pitching last season.
Ross Stripling takes the mound for Toronto with an ERA of 3.60 this season. Stripling also struggled against the Yankees last season, giving up six runs on ten hits through ten innings against the Yankees last season.
The Yankees offense has scored over five runs in four out of their last five games. Both these teams can score runs at any moment, I expect a high scoring game, especially with the previous success each of these teams has against their opposing pitcher. My Pick Over 8.5
