The Toronto Blue Jays have been white hot which has carried them to the top of the American League East. The Blue Jays cooled down for a night with Monday’s defeat as their potent offense struggled. David price fell to 13-5 with three runs allowed on six hits through seven innings while striking out nine. The Blue Jays posted ten hits and walked twice with Josh Donaldson knocking in two runs with Ben Revere and Ryan Goins scoring. Marco Estrada draws the starting assignment against the Indians for the first time in his career. Estrada threw the ball well in a 4-1 loss at Texas with a run allowed on four hits in six innings.
The over is 8-1-2 in Cleveland last 11 on astroturf and the Indians are 4-9 in their last 13 games as an underdog. Toronto are 24-5 in their last 29 overall and the over is 9-2 in their last 11 overall while going 8-2 in their last 10 games as a favorite. Estrada should have the pitching edge and hopefully the offense takes care of business…
