The Toronto Blue Jays will look to rebound from a 5-4 loss at the hands of the Brewers in Saturday’s matchup. Bo Bichette leads the Blue Jays with 76 hits including 15 doubles, 12 home runs and 39 RBIs while Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has a team-high 17 home runs with 43 RBIs and George Springer has 13 home runs with 34 RBIs as well this season. Santiago Espinal has 65 hits with a team-high 18 doubles and a .261 batting average on the year. Jose Berrios will start here and is 5-3 with a 5.11 ERA and 63 strikeouts this season.
The Milwaukee Brewers will look to win the series after their win on Saturday. Rowdy Tellez has 11 home runs and 41 RBIs while Hunter Renfroe has 13 homers as well and Willy Adames also has 15 home runs. Renfroe has a .247 batting average and Adames has 38 RBIs. Christian Yelich also has 66 hits with 11 doubles and 26 RBIs this season. Chi Chi Gonzalez will start here and is 0-1 with a 7.36 ERA and 6 strikeouts this season.
Toronto is 11-4 in their last 15 road games and 20-9 in their last 29 Sunday games while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 interleague road games. Milwaukee is 23-10 in their last 33 Sunday games and 2-9 in their last 11 home games while the under is 4-1-1 in their last 6 interleague games.
I get the case to be made for the Blue Jays here but Jose Berrios has been dreadful on the road this season and even with Toronto’s potent offense, it’s not enough at times to make up for Berrios’ shortcomings on the road. As much as I don’t like backing anyone with Chi Chi Gonzalez as their starter, the reality is that even Berrios on the road can negate that advantage and I just feel like this is a reasonable spot for Milwaukee to close out the series with a win. Give me the Brewers in this one.
