The Toronto Blue Jays look to end their series at the Atlanta Braves with another win.
The Toronto Blue Jays lead the American League East but still have to wrap things up. The Blue Jays ended a two game skid with a huge 9-1 win at Turner Field on Wednesday. Starter David Price was at his best with the lone run plated on six hits over seven frames. The bats racked up 12 hits and walked six times that featured a homer and four RBI’s by Russell Martin while Ben Revere knocked in a pair of runs with a run with Ryan Goins driving in a run and scoring. The Blue Jays turn to Marco Estrada for the final game of the series at Turner Field. Estrada has been a solid part of Toronto’s rotation with a 12-8 record with a 3.31 ERA.

It’s been a long season for the Atlanta Braves and I would expect some changes in the offseason. The Braves struggles continued Wednesday to saddle the team with defeats in ten of 12. Neither the arms or bats were able to come through with starter Shelby Miller allowing five runs in 3.2 innings before Sugar Ray Marimon and Ryan Kelly giving up two runs apiece. The Bravos mustered seven hits and walked four times with Freddie Freeman driving Nick Markakis with the lone run. The Braves hand the ball to Matt Wisler who faces the Blue Jays for the first time in his career. Wisler has had some struggles as the season as gone on with a 5-7 record with a 5.60 ERA.
The over is 12-4 in Toronto’s last 16 road games and the over is 12-4 in their last 16 on grass while Toronto are 36-15 in their last 51 overall. Atlanta are 1-9 in their last 10 interleague games and are 3-13 in their last 16 home games while going 12-39 in their last 51 overall. Toronto are 2-10 in the last 12 meetings in Atlanta and the under is 7-2 in the last 9 meetings in Atlanta. I believe the Blue Jays have the edge on the mound and if so we will hear from their bats…
