The Toronto Blue Jays need a win after losing four of their last five games. The Blue Jays have scored four runs in their last three games and three or less runs in four of their last eight games. The Blue Jays are 2-7 this season when scoring three or less runs. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. leads the Blue Jays with 21 hits and 11 RBI while Bo Bichette and Randal Grichuk have combined for 32 hits and 20 RBI. The Toronto Blue Jays didn’t announce a starting pitcher at the time this article was published.
The Boston Red Sox look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Red Sox have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 14 games. The Red Sox are 11-0 this season when scoring four or more runs. J.D. Martinez leads the Red Sox with 24 hits and 20 RBI while Xander Bogaerts and Alex Verdugo have combined for 42 hits and 20 RBI. Garrett Richards gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 6.00 ERA and 10 strikeouts this season. Richards is 2-4 with a 5.20 ERA and 28 strikeouts in his career against the Blue Jays.
The Blue Jays are 3-7 in their last 10 during game 2 of a series and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The Red Sox are 50-20 in their last 70 Wednesday games and 5-2 in their last 7 during game 2 of a series. The under is 4-0 in Blue Jays last 4 overall. The over is 17-8 in Red Sox last 25 overall. The Blue Jays are 9-19 in the last 28 meetings in Boston.
The Toronto Blue Jays didn't announce a starting pitcher at the time this article was published, but at this point I'm not sure it matters. The Blue Jays offense continues to struggle time and time again, and the Boston Red Sox remain one of the hotter teams in the league with an offense that continues to step up. Still an early season and things could change, but give me the Red Sox for another victory.
