Blue Jays Offense Needs to Be Better

The Blue Jays offense needs to be better after they really struggled on Friday. The Blue Jays scored only one run and that wasn’t enough. The pitching gave up only three runs but they still ended up losing. The Blue Jays are averaging 3.89 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.41 runs per game. The offense is ranked 25th in the league while the pitching is ranked 17th. In this game the Blue Jays are going to need the offense to get out to a fast start. Davis Schneider hit eight home runs and driven in 32 RBIs so far this season. The Blue Jays will meet the Red Sox after this series.

Why The Blue Jays Will Win

  • The Blue Jays have won each of their last nine games against the Guardians following a home loss.
  • The Guardians have lost 10 of their last 11 games at Rogers Centre following a road win.
  • The Blue Jays have covered the run line in eight of their last nine games against the Guardians following a home loss.
  • The Guardians have failed to cover the run line in five of their last six day games following a win.
  • The Blue Jays have led after 5 innings in each of their last five day games.
  • The Blue Jays have led after 3 innings in each of their last four day games against American League opponents.

Guardians Leaned on Pitching

The Guardians leaned on their pitching on Friday as they gave up only one run on the way to the victory. Logan Allen went five innings, giving up three hits and one run. Andres Giminez finished with two hits and one RBIs. The Guardians are averaging 5.03 runs, while their pitching is giving up 3.67 runs per game. The offense is ranked 5th in the league while the defense is ranked 5th. They have a run differential of 1.36 which is 5th in the league. Jose Ramirez has been an x-factor this season and so far this year he has hit 18 home runs and driven in 62 RBIs. Getting the start for the Guardians will be Carlos Carrasco who sits with a 2-5 record and an ERA of 5.50. In his last start against the Miami Marlins, he went 4.2 innings, giving up four hits and two runs. 

Why Guardians Will Win

  • The Guardians have won 10 of their last 11 day games against American League opponents.
  • The Blue Jays have lost five of their last six games against AL Central opponents that held a winning record.
  • The Blue Jays have failed to cover the run line in each of their last seven games at Rogers Centre.
  • The Guardians have covered the run line in six of their last seven games at Rogers Centre.
  • The Guardians have led after 3 innings in each of their last five games against American League opponents that held a losing record.

Toronto Blue Jays vs Cleveland Guardians Prediction

Carrasco has been a problem at times, but in his last start, he gave up only two runs, and he’s going to find success again in this game. The Blue Jays offense has been inconsistent at best this season and they are going to really struggle to get any sort of offense going here. The Blue Jays aren’t going to score more than three runs total and that is going to be enough for the Guardians to get the job done.
