|Date & Time||Sunday July 21, 2019, 1:10 PM (EDT)|
Detroit Tigers +115 / Toronto Blue Jays -126 O/U: 10.5
The Toronto Blue Jays and the Detroit Tigers will meet up on the MLB diamond Sunday to finish their series.
In the Friday opener, the Blue Jays powered out a 12-1 win. On Saturday, Toronto kept it going with a 7-5 victory. Freddy Galvis was the top hitter on a 3-for-5 line with a run.
For the Sunday game, Toronto will roll with Jacob Waguespack in the start. Waguespack has 13.2 innings, a 1-0 record, a 5.93 ERA, 13 Ks and four walks this year.
Over on the Tigers’ side, they’re going with Tyler Alexander as the starter Saturday. Alexander has a 3.60 ERA in his lone start across 5.0 innings.
Detroit put up seven hits in the Saturday loss but couldn’t score outside of the second and fourth innings. Brandon Dixon had a good night with three hits, an RBI and a run.
The Jays are 23-51 in their last 74 versus a left-handed starter and 16-36 in the last 52 after a win. Toronto is 7-19 in their last 26 in game three of a series and 11-31 in their last 42 on the road against a lefty starter.
Meanwhile, the Tigers are 14-43 in their last 57 home games and 11-45 in their last 56 overall. Detroit is 9-42 in their last 51 versus a right-handed starter and 15-39 in their last 54 after a loss.
There’s not much to go on with Alexander right now; he gave up two solo homers in 5.0 innings with five hits in his lone start at the Major League level this year.
As for Waguespack, he’s been pretty “meh” in his three appearances. I’m going with the Jays on offensive potential but staying far away from this game.
