The Line: Toronto Blue Jays -110 / San Francisco Giants +100 -- Over/Under: 8
The Toronto Blue Jays and San Francisco Giants meet Tuesday in MLB action at AT&T Park.
The Toronto Blue Jays could use a win after losing 10 of their last 12 games. The Blue Jays have allowed 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 13 games. The Toronto Blue Jays have lost nine straight games when allowing four or more runs. Offensively, Freddy Galvis leads the Blue Jays with 39 hits and 14 RBI while Randal Grichuk and Justin Smoak have combined for 66 hits and 37 RBI. Trent Thornton gets the ball, and he is 0-4 with a 5.06 ERA and 39 strikeouts this season. This will be Thornton’s second career game against the Giants.
The San Francisco Giants look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Giants have scored 10 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last nine games. The San Francisco Giants have split their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Steven Duggar leads the Giants with 39 hits and 20 RBI while Evan Longoria and Brandon Crawford have combined for 59 hits and 23 RBI. Tyler Beede gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 18.69 ERA and five strikeouts this season. This will be Beede’s first career game against the Blue Jays.
The Blue Jays are 3-8 in their last 11 Tuesday games, 1-5 in their last 6 road games and 1-7 in their last 8 overall. The Giants are 5-11 in their last 16 vs. American League East, 3-7 in their last 10 home games and 1-5 in their last 6 games following a win. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in San Francisco and 5-2 in the last 7 meetings. The over is 4-1-1 in Giants last 6 interleague home games. The under is 11-5 in Blue Jays last 16 overall.
The Toronto Blue Jays are a team that's just falling apart by the day, and now they're throwing out a pitcher in Thornton who has allowed 35 hits and 21 runs in 37.1 innings and has had trouble keeping the ball in the park. Beede hasn't been any better in 4.1 innings, and he's given up 19 hits and 16 earned runs in 12 career innings. This is an awful game and an even worse pitching matchup where both starters have done nothing but give up runs their whole career. I'll wait for the line to come out and lean toward the over.
