The Toronto Blue Jays look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Blue Jays have scored 15 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in four of their last five games. The Blue Jays have lost four of their last six games when scoring three or less runs. Josh Donaldson leads Toronto with 91 hits and 48 RBI while Edwin Encarnacion and Russell Martin have combined for 84 RBI. The Toronto Blue Jays have won five of their last eight home games. R.A. Dickey takes the hill, and he’s 3-7 with a 4.88 ERA and 60 strikeouts this season. Dickey is 6-5 with a 4.45 ERA and 75 strikeouts in his career against the Red Sox.
The Red Sox are 7-21 in their last 28 vs. American League East and 4-1 in Buchholzs last 5 starts. The Blue Jays are 6-1 in their last 7 during game 1 of a series and 5-2 in Dickeys last 7 starts. The Red Sox are 11-1 in Buchholzs last 12 road starts vs. Blue Jays.
Dickey hasn't been his usual self, and the Red Sox offense has picked up, which is a good sign heading into this massive ballpark. I really like Boston and the plus money.
