GameThread Game #54: Yankees at Blue Jays

MLB: Baltimore Orioles at Toronto Blue Jays Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Sports

The Blue Jays are welcoming hosting the Yankees for a four game series. I’m extremely thankful these four are happening in Buffalo and not Yankee Stadium. Will the Sith be less Sith-like away from home? We shall see!

Matt Shoemaker will start tonight, and Julian Merryweather has been placed on the 10-day IL, retro’d back to Sept 18, so he will be eligible to be reinstated in time for the playoffs.

Here are tonight’s lineups. Biggio gets another start at 3rd, Villar will play 2nd, Kirk will catch this one, and Davis gets a start in left field.

Today's Lineups

DJ LeMahieu - 2B Cavan Biggio - 3B
Aaron Judge - RF Bo Bichette - SS
Giancarlo Stanton - DH Teoscar Hernandez - RF
Luke Voit - 1B Lourdes Gurriel - DH
Gleyber Torres - SS Randal Grichuk - CF
Aaron Hicks - CF Vladimir Guerrero - 1B
Gio Urshela - 3B Jonathan Villar - 2B
Gary Sanchez - C Alejandro Kirk - C
Brett Gardner - LF Jonathan Davis - LF
Michael King - RHP Matt Shoemaker - RHP
