Scouting Report:
Blue Jays: On Tuesday, Halladay picked up a win after allowing just two runs on six hits with seven strikeouts and no walks over six innings against Tampa Bay. The right-hander improved to 4-1 with a 1.96 ERA in five August starts and is now 8-3 with a 2.07 ERA over his last 11 outings. Halladay has registered 75 strikeouts and just 15 walks over 82 2/3 innings over those 11 starts. In his career against the Yankees, Halladay is 13-5 with a 2.92 ERA in 30 appearances.

Yankees: Pettitte exited after just 4 2/3 innings Tuesday night after he served up six runs on 10 hits to the Red Sox. It marked his shortest outing since July 2, also against Boston. He gave up three runs in the first three innings and recorded three early walks to get into trouble. Despite the rough outing, Pettitte said he felt that he was locating his pitches where he wanted to and throwing his changeup for strikes, he just couldn't get the outs. He is 1-1 with a 3.46 ERA against Toronto.
