The Miami Marlins and the Toronto Blue Jays face off on Tuesday in an interleague showdown at Marlins Park. These two squads have faced off twice this year with each team winning one of the games.
The Blue Jays had won four games in a row before they were knocked off by the Orioles in their game on Monday afternoon. Each of the previous six games the Blue Jays had scored at least five runs, and in this game the it’s going to be important for the offense that they get out to a fast start. The Blue Jays best player has been Teoscar Hernandez who has hit 12 home runs and driven in 22 RBI’s.
On the other side of this matchup is the Miami Marlins who pulled off the big upset on Monday, but before that they had lost four straight games. In two of those games the Marlins were shutout, and the offense needs to score a few runs early to help with the confidence. Jesus Aguilar comes into this game having hit four home runs and driven in 20 RBI’s. In this game the Marlins need to try and get some run support early, and make life tough on the Blue Jays.
On the mound for the Marlins will be Elieser Hernandez who comes into this game with a 1-0 record and an ERA of 3.04.
The under is 8-1 in the Blue Jays last nine interleague games. The under is 7-3-2 in the Blue Jays last 12 road games. The Marlins are 2-8 in their last 10 home games. The Marlins are 14-30 in their last 44 games played on Tuesday. The Blue Jays are 6-2 in the last eight meetings against the Marlins.
Hernandez has been good this season for the Marlins and this will be another chance for another strong start. Even though the Marlins haven’t had a lot of success against the Blue Jays the last decade they are going to find success in this game. Back the Marlins on the money line.
