The Line: Toronto Blue Jays / San Francisco Giants -- Over/Under:
The Toronto Blue Jays and San Francisco Giants meet Wednesday in MLB action at AT&T Park.
The Toronto Blue Jays look for a win after losing 10 of their last 13 games. The Blue Jays have allowed 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in nine of their last 13 games. The Toronto Blue Jays have lost their last nine 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. The Toronto Blue Jays didn’t list a starting pitcher at the time this article was published.
The San Francisco Giants also need a win after losing six of their last nine games. The Giants have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six 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. Shaun Anderson will make his major league debut when he takes the mound. Anderson was 19-14 with a 3.87 ERA and 275 strikeouts in his minor league career.
The Blue Jays are 9-26 in their last 35 Wednesday games, 1-5 in their last 6 road games and 0-4 in their last 4 during game 2 of a series. The Giants are 5-11 in their last 16 vs. American League East, 2-11 in their last 13 Wednesday games and 0-5 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in San Francisco and 5-2 in the last 7 meetings. The over is 8-1 in Giants last 9 overall. The under is 11-5 in Blue Jays last 16 overall.
The Toronto Blue Jays have struggles of their own, but they at least put together offense and compete on a nightly basis. The San Francisco Giants just aren't a good baseball team and find creative ways to lose, mainly due to a lack of scoring. I wouldn't bet this game either way, but I want no parts of the Giants and their rough lineup. I also have a thing of not wanting to bet on pitchers making their major league debut due to the unknown. If forced to pick, give me the Blue Jays, but this is a pass overall.
