Toronto Blue Jays -125 / San Francisco Giants +105 O/U: 9
The San Francisco Giants and the Toronto Blue Jays will finish up their two-game MLB set on Wednesday.
In the Tuesday game one, the Giants held off a four-run eighth inning from the Jays to eked out a 7-6 victory.
For Wednesday’s game, the Giants will be sending out RHP Drew Pomeranz. In his 18.2 innings and 0-2 record this year, Pomeranz has a 4.82 ERA with 23 Ks and eight walks.
Pablo Sandoval had the big night for the Giants offense on Tuesday, bagging a solo homer among three hits with a pair of runs scored.
Over on the Blue Jays’ side, they’re going with Clay Buchholz on Wednesday. Over 10.2 innings without a decision, Buchholz has a 3.38 ERA with six Ks and three walks.
In the loss Tuesday, the Jays’ top hitter was Rowdy Tellez, who slapped a double and a homer with his two runs and four RBI on the night.
The Giants are 5-16 in their last 21 Wednesday games and 5-13 in their last 18 games versus a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30. The over is 8-3 in San Fran’s last 11 in game two of a series and the under is 4-0 in Pomeranz’s last four starts overall.
Meanwhile, the under is 5-0 in the Jays’ last five Wednesday games and they’re 9-23 in their last 32 Wednesday games. Toronto is 15-38 in their last 53 versus a left-handed starter and 2-7 in their last nine home games versus a left-handed starter.
Pomeranz was pretty solid over his first three starts of the year, bagging six earned in 14.0 innings on 16 hits. He skidded a bit in his last outing versus the Nats however, with four earned in 4.2 innings.
As for Buccholz, he was great in one of his starts and just okay in the other, but the Jays won both games. I think Toronto will keep that streak going here.
