WEATHER: Always nice to have the dome.

SECOND CHANCES: Blue Jays starter Marcus Stroman’s last outing was against the Yankees last Tuesday. He lasted just 3.2 innings that game and took the loss in a 3-1 Yankees win. He’s a former first-round pick making just his fifth big league starter over all.

SECOND CHANCES (AGAIN): Yankees starter Chase Whitley is also facing a team for the second time in a row. He last pitched against the Blue Jays on Wednesday and got his third straight win, going five innings with two runs. The Yankees have won six of Whitley’s seven starts overall this season. Whitley’s five consecutive road starts resulting in a team win is tied for the second-longest active streak in the Majors.

ON THIS DATE: Pretty solid Toronto connection because of the player involved: June 23, 1997, David Cone struck out 16 batters in a 5-2 Yankees win at Detroit. That’s a still-standing single-game franchise record for a right-handed pitcher.
