Let’s take a closer look at how these two pitchers matchup. Yu is rolling into this playoff series with a regular season record of only 7-5. The guy has lightsout action on his curve and a deadly heater with an ability to change speed well. At 3.41, Yu’s ERA is slightly higher than J.A.’s who is sitting at 3.18. With 132 strikeouts, Yu can mow down batters all day long and can easily work deep into the 7th or even 8th.
J.A. will be walking into this war with a 20 win season behind him and only 4 losses. The leftie has good heat and can work the corners with the best. If he has a strong outing the Blue Jays have a great chance of getting this road win.
