Everybody knows the Toronto Blue Jays are all about pounding the baseball and lighting up the scoreboard but that didn’t happen against Chicago and runs were needed with the work on the mound struggling. Jays starter RA Dickey was charged with six runs on eight hits in six frames with Drew Storen allowing three in the 9th. It really didn’t matter with the Blue Jays held to four hits and a pair of base on balls with Edwin Encarnacion drilling his third homer for the lone run. A steady Marco Estrada will be on the bump for the Blue Jays Wednesday for his second career meeting with the White Sox. Estrada did not get a decision in a 3-2 defeat at Baltimore with a run allowed on six hits and four BB in five frames.
The under is 11-3-1 in the White Sox last 15 road games and is 21-6-3 in their last 30 overall while Chicago are 6-2 in their last 8 road games. The over is 13-5-1 in Toronto’s last 19 Wednesday games and the Blue Jays are 16-7 in their last 23 Wednesday games while going 33-16 in their last 49 home games. The under is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings in Toronto. This is toss up city here so the team with the best record in the AL at plus money doesn’t seem so bad…
