Where the game will be won or lost
The visiting Toronto Blue Jays will send left-handed pitcher Clayton Richard to the mound.
Richard has a 1-5 record with a 6.23 ERA so far this season. He is winless in three career starts against the Yankees.
New York, on the other hand, will roll with southpaw J.A. Happ.
Happ has a 7-4 record with a 5.02 ERA this year. This will be the second time this season that Happ faces his old team. Happ was 59-41 with a 3.88 ERA in 135 appearances (127 starts) over his career with the Blue Jays. He also had a 20-win season in 2016.
Both starting pitchers have high ERAs, so which ever one is better on the mound on Saturday will more than likely lead their team to a big win.
