The Toronto Blue Jays welcomed the New York Yankees to the Great White North with an 8-1 drubbing on Wednesday night. New York will try and get split in the two-game series on Thursday night, hoping that starter Phil Hughes continues his recent hot streak.
Hughes won both of his last two starts, allowing a total of four earned runs during that span. He struck out 11 batters and walked only 2 in more than 14 innings of work. If Hughes can give the Yankees another quality start, it would be the team's first in its last four games.
Right-hander Drew Hutchinson is on the bump for the Blue Jays. This is just the sixth start for the rookie and his first ever against the Yankees. In Hutchinson's last outing, he went six innings, allowing just one run for a win over the Minnesota Twins. He is 2-1 with a 5.53 ERA on the season.
The game starts at 7:07 p.m. Fans can watch it live on the YES Network as well as the MLB Network.
