(MLB) Toronto vs. NY Yankees, 09/09/2021 7:05 PM, Score: 6 - 4
Money Line: 105.00 Toronto (Away)
Result: Win
Remember when the Yankees moved to the top of the wild-card race by putting together a 13-game win streak last month?

You can forget it now. Those aren't the same Yankees. New York has dropped nine of its last 11 games, including the past five. During their last 11 games, the Yankees have been held to four or fewer runs nine times.

Toronto now is the hot team. The Blue Jays have won seven in a row and 10 of their last 11 games. The Blue Jays are 7-2 playing at Yankee Stadium this season and going for a four-game sweep in this matchup.

Yet the Blue Jays are an underdog. Huh?

It's not the pitching matchup either. The Blue Jays have Jose Berrios, a solid No. 2 type starter going. He's 2-0 with a 2.64 ERA in his past two starts.

New York is pitching Nestor Cortes, who is largely untested as a starter. He has a 6.17 ERA in six career relief appearances against the Blue Jays.
