The Toronto Blue Jays look to sweep the Boston Red Sox Sunday afternoon.
The Toronto Blue Jays look to build on their 10-game winning streak. The Blue Jays have scored 25 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 straight games. The Blue Jays have won 10 straight games when scoring more than three runs. Josh Donaldson leads Toronto with 79 hits and 45 RBI while Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista have combined for 74 RBI. The Toronto Blue Jays have won four straight home games. Marco Estrada gets the ball, and he’s 3-3 with a 3.78 ERA and 44 strikeouts this season. Estrada is 1-1 with a 2.84 ERA and 10 strikeouts in his career against the Red Sox.

The Boston Red Sox need a win to snap a five-game losing streak. The Red Sox have scored 19 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last nine games. The Red Sox have split their last eight games when scoring more than three runs. Dustin Pedroia leads Boston with 77 hits and 26 RBI while Hanley Ramirez and Xander Bogaerts have combined for 56 RBI. The Boston Red Sox have split their last eight home games. Eduardo Rodriguez takes the hill, and he’s 2-0 with a 0.44 ERA and 21 strikeouts this season. This will be Rodriguez’s first career game against the Blue Jays.
The Blue Jays are 4-1 in their last 5 games as a road underdog and 2-5 in Estradas last 7 starts. The Red Sox are 1-4 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series and 5-11 in their last 16 games vs. a right-handed starter. The Blue Jays are 9-4 in the last 13 meetings in Boston.
The Blue Jays have to lose eventually, right? Also, it's hard to bet against Rodriguez, as the kid has been lights out in his first three career games. I like the Sox here.
