The Toronto Blue Jays look to even the ALCS with another win against the Kansas City Royals.
The Kansas City Royals had a chance to take a commanding 3-0 series lead over the Blue Jays. Unfortunately the Royals decided to go with a disappointing Johnny Cueto who was hammered for eight runs on six hits and four bases on balls over just two frames in an 11-8 loss and is not an asset. The offense put up some big numbers on 15 hits with Kendrys Morales going deep and driving in two with Eric Hosmer knocking in two more while Alcides Escobar and Ben Zobrist each scoring three times. Kansas City turns to veteran Chris Young for his first start of the postseason in game two of the ALCS. On the season Young has logged an 11-6 record with a 3.04 ERA over 18 starts.

The Toronto Blue Jays return home woke up a slumbering offense as they pounded Kansas City pitching and received just enough from their own arms to win game three of the ALCS. Starter Marcos Stroman turned in a sketchy performance with four runs allowed on eleven hits through 6.1 innings with Liam Hendricks giving up three 9th inning runs. The heavy hitting Jays did their damage on eleven hits and six free passes with Troy Tulowitzki, Ryan Goins and Josh Donaldson going deep and knocking three runs each and scoring five times. Knuckleballer RA Dickey appears in the second game of the postseason and first in the ALCS. Dickey did not receive a decision in an 8-4 win at Texas with a run plated on five hits over 4.2 frames.
The under is 9-2 in Kansas City’s last 11 Tuesday games while the Royals are 21-8 in their last 29 Tuesday games. The over is 6-1-4 in Toronto’s last 11 on astroturf and the over is 9-2-2 in their last 13 overall while Toronto are 6-2 in their last 8 Tuesday games. No line out but I lean Jays…
