The Toronto Blue Jays and Boston Red Sox play game two of their series Tuesday afternoon.
The Toronto Blue Jays need a win to snap a four-game losing streak. The Blue Jays have allowed 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 10 games. The Blue Jays have lost seven of their last 10 games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Josh Donaldson leads Toronto with 26 hits and 14 RBI while Devon Travis and Russell Martin have combined for 30 RBI. The Toronto Blue Jays have lost five of their last six road games. Drew Hutchison gets the nod, and he’s 2-0 with a 5.48 ERA and 21 strikeouts this season. Hutchison is 2-1 with a 4.64 ERA and 17 strikeouts in his career against the Red Sox.

The Boston Red Sox look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Red Sox have scored 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last eight games. The Red Sox have split their last 10 games when scoring more than three runs. Dustin Pedroia leads Boston with 22 hits and nine RBI while Hanley Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval have combined for 29 RBI. The Boston Red Sox have won five of their last eight home games. Clay Buchholz takes the hill, and he’s 1-2 with a 4.84 ERA and 29 strikeouts this season. Buchholz is 11-8 with a 3.20 ERA and 106 strikeouts in his career against the Blue Jays.
The Blue Jays are 20-9 in their last 29 Tuesday games and 4-1 in Hutchisons last 5 starts. The Red Sox are 10-21 in their last 31 during game 2 of a series and 1-6 in Buchholzs last 7 starts. The Red Sox are 1-6 in Buchholzs last 7 home starts vs. Blue Jays.
The Blue Jays have to get back in the win column eventually, and they're facing Buchholz, a picther in who they've had great success against in the past. I like the value of the plus money here.
