Seriously. Though this team has been completely allergic to sweeps this year, they have another crack at one that could vault them back into the division and Wild Card races.
Don’t get your hopes up, though. It’s simply impossible to do so.
The pros? Gary Sánchez, who smacked an exceedingly clutch homer on Wednesday night to swipe a 3-2 lead and ignite the team, won’t be sitting in this one. Sorry, Kyle Higashioka, but you’re probably not the starter anymore.

Yankees vs Blue Jays Odds Today
For the third time in as many games — you guessed it! — the Blue Jays are favored over the Yankees, checking in at -165 with a 1.5-point spread. You predict it three times, you’re gonna be right once, right?
Yankees vs Blue Jays Pitching Matchup
Get ready…drumroll please…the Blue Jays are starting potentially the only pitcher we’d feel confident in picking Michael King over: TBD! In all seriousness, midway through the day, this became TJ Zeuch, who’s handled the Yankees in the recent past.
King will toe the rubber for the Yanks, and ideally he’ll be able to complete 4-5 innings — though every key member of the bullpen, Aroldis Chapman aside, should be available.
Yankees Starting Lineup
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome Tyler Wade to the starting lineup! As odd as it sounds to say, he’s earned it. Clint Frazier is still not back.
Aaron Judge Injury
Judge played again without restrictions on Wednesday; he also socked the only hit of the game through six innings as the second batter of the first. We’re feeling better about this situation today.
Yankees vs Blue Jays Prediction Today
It’s very difficult to pick a Yankees sweep, especially with King on the mound on getaway day. Not sure this one will ever completely get away from the Yankees, but we’ll say the Blue Jays hold on 7-5 with their backs against the wall.
