The Toronto Blue Jays have won four straight games heading into Friday's matchup versus the New York Yankees. They've also taken seven of 10 dating back to May 5 against the Seattle Mariners.

Their bats appear to be waking up as they've scored at least 10 runs in three straight games and are averaging nine runs per game during the winning streak. The Jays are now tied for first in the American League with 53 home runs.

The Jays were the talk of the offseason as they revamped their lineup and starting rotation and found themselves 12/1 to bring the World Series trophy back to Canada.

Toronto will look to continue its winning ways as they open a weekend series versus New York at Yankee Stadium Friday. The Yankees are -163 favorites and will send Huroki Kuroda to the hill. The Jays will counter with lefty Mark Buehrle.
