The New York Yankees will try and keep scoring runs as they open up a series in Toronto on Tuesday.  The Yankees had 17 hits in Sunday as they routed the Royals 15-6.  They may have a tougher time on Tuesday as they face A.J. Burnett and the Toronto Blue Jays.  Burnett has won five straight games and is part of a Toronto staff which has a 1.85 ERA in the last six games. Burnett is 3-0 with a 1.23 ERA in his last four starts versus the Yankees.  New York must face Burnett, rookie David Purcey and Roy Halladay in this series. “We all know how good their pitching staff is and how they’ve been playing us, so it’s going to be a challenge,” New York shortstop Derek Jeter said. SBG Global reports that early MLB betting has the public taking Blue Jays  at Home.
