The Toronto Blue Jays look to build on their six-game winning streak. The Blue Jays have scored 25 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six straight games. The Blue Jays have won 10 of their last 11 games when scoring more than three runs. Josh Donaldson leads Toronto with 72 hits and 43 RBI while Jose Bautista and Russell Martin have combined for 62 RBI. The Toronto Blue Jays have won seven of their last eight home games. Mark Buehrle takes the hill, and he’s 7-4 with a 4.35 ERA and 32 strikeouts this season. This will be Buehrle’s second career game against the Marlins.
The Marlins are 7-3 in their last 10 vs. American League East and 6-2 in Harens last 8 starts. The Blue Jays are 14-6 in their last 20 vs. National League East and 4-1 in Buehrles last 5 home starts. The Marlins are 9-3 in the last 12 meetings.
Haren has been great all season long in a Miami uniform, and the fish have done well lately rebounding from losses. Monday was ugly. I like the value of the plus money here. Besides, the Blue Jays have to lose eventually, right?
