Things continue to look good for the Baltimore Orioles as well, who last night belted 7 home runs en route to their win over the Blue Jays. Baltimore has an off day today and tomorrow they open up a series against the Red Sox at Camden Yards.
With Baltimore's off-day today the Yankees' division lead will either go up to 2 games or down to 1 game, depending on what they do in their series opener in Toronto tonight. Inconsistent Ivan Nova will pitch against Brandon Morrow, a matchup that favors the Jays. But, keep in mind that Nova had a full seven days rest between his last two starts. He'll be on regular rest tonight, which might mean something. Or it could mean absolutely nothing.
Seven games left. Go Yankees!
