MLB : Blue Jays Visit Yankees in Series Finale

The Toronto Blue Jays are back in the thick of the AL East pennant race. It's a three-team race at the moment, but the New York Yankees are trying to make it four. They'll host the Jays Wednesday afternoon (1:05 PM ET, SNET) in the third game of a three-game set; the Yankees won the opener 1-0 Monday night as +105 underdogs, down from +120 at the open.

With the loss, the Jays (67-52, –0.61 betting units) fell into a tie with the Baltimore Orioles for first place in the division, with the Boston Red Sox trailing by one and the Yankees (61-57, –0.73 units) 5.5 games behind. Toronto will send JA Happ (3.75 FIP) to the mound on Wednesday; he's led the team to 11 straight wins over the past two months, vaulting into third place among pitchers on the MLB money list at +11.79 units.

New York responds with veteran lefty CC Sabathia (4.42 FIP), who has the Yankees in the black at +1.85 units on a team record of 11-10, including three wins in his last four games. Both teams are missing outfielders for Wednesday's matchup: Brett Gardner for New York and Jose Bautista for Toronto.
