Getting the start tonight for the New York Yankees will be Phil Hughes. It has been a rough go for the Yankees right hander this season as he sits with an ERA of 5.50 and a WHIP of 1.36 in seven starts this season. Hughes has three road starts and his ERA in those games is approaching six runs. Toronto has hit Hughes as the Yankees hurler in his past three starts against the Blue Jays has allowed 13 earned runs in just 15 2/3rds innings of work and four home runs. Look for the Yankees bats to wake up here as they face a pitcher from Toronto in poor form and should exploit a terrible Blue Jays bullpen that has a current seasonal ERA Of 5.63 in 46 1/3rd innings pitched at home this season.
The Blue Jays start Drew Hutchison on Thursday night. In five games in 2012 the Toronto right hander has an ERA of 5.53 and WHIP of 1.51 in his 27 2/3rds innings of work. Hutchison has struggled with control with 10 walks. He is a fastball pitcher because he has trouble throwing his other pitches for strikes and could get lit up against a hungry Yankees lineup. Hutchison has a home ERA of 7.50 on the year. Looks like a short night for Hutchison as he may not go further than five innings today. Two starters in bad form and a bad Blue Jays bullpen leads us to the over tonight at best online sportsbooks.
