The Toronto Blue Jays just seem to match up well against the D-Backs taking the first two games of the series on the road. On Tuesday Rajai Davis, Edwin Encarnacion, Adam Lind, and Moises Sierra all hit home runs and the Blue Jays scored 10 runs on 15 hits in all. Starting pitcher Todd Redmond was in cruise control allowing four hits and three runs over five innings to get the win. For Wednesday’s game Toronto starts Mark Buehrle who has been sharp with a 2-0 record and a 1.25 ERA in his last three starts and he is 11-7 for the season with a 3.92 ERA.
Arizona is 5-2 in their last seven interleague games, 1-5 in their last six games overall, and 4-1 in Delgado’s last five starts. Toronto is 5-1 in their last six games, 3-7 in their last 10 road games, and 7-1 in Buehrle’s last eight starts. Toronto has won five of the last seven meetings of these two in Arizona.
The total in this one s set at eight and this one should stay under though that is really just a lean. My stronger play is o the winning side and I will post that pick in the Premium Area.
