The New York Yankees will be desperate for a win when they open a three-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night in Buffalo. The Yankees have lost three consecutive games and 11 of their past 15 to tumble to fourth place in the American League East. The Yankees were without Aaron Judge (back spasms) on Sunday, but they hope to have him back Tuesday.

The Yankees will start left-hander Jordan Montgomery (3-1, 3.99 ERA) on six days’ rest following days off on Friday and Monday. Montgomery is 0-0 with a 5.79 ERA in one outing against Toronto this season and 2-1 with a 3.58 ERA in seven career games (six starts).

The Blue Jays will start their top pitcher, left-hander Hyun Jin Ryu (5-4, 3.34). Ryu has faced the Yankees twice this season (1-0, 1.50). He is 2-2 with a 4.46 ERA in six career starts against the Yankees.

The Blue Jays are coming off a 3-4 road trip against the Chicago White Sox (1-2) and the Boston Red Sox (2-2). They split the series at Boston despite outscoring the Red Sox 31-14. Toronto’s Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit his major-league-leading 22nd homer of the season with two outs in the ninth inning on Monday to tie the game. The Red Sox scored in the bottom of the inning to win 2-1.
