Game #18 Preview: Sanchez vs Sabathia

Blue Jays (12-5) vs Yankees (8-8) After finalizing the sweep against the Royals yesterday, the Blue Jays head to New York to open up a 4 game series in the Bronx. Tonight’s first pitch is at 6:35 ET. Blue Jays’ Starter After firing 8 innings of 1 run ball against the Orioles (including carrying a no-hitter into that 8th inning), Sanchez will look to carry his strong start to the season into New York. That start against the O’s was April 10, so he’s had a pretty good rest between starts. The first time Sanchez faced the Yankees this year, he allowed 4 runs over his 5.2 innings,...
