Toronto has now lost 3 in a row after their loss on Thursday. The Blue Jays had 7 hits in the game and were just 2-13 with runners in scoring position. Vlad Guerrero Jr. and Cavan Biggio both homered for the second time this season. The Blue Jays have a .208 team batting average and 11 home runs so far this season. Randal Grichuk leads the team with a .400 batting average and 5 RBI.

The Blue Jays will start young righty TJ Zeuch on Friday. In his first start he went 4 shutout innings allowing 4 hits with 1 strikeout. He has not faced this Angels lineup in his young career.

The Angels are 6-4 in their last 10, 6-4 on the run line, and the over is 6-4.

The Blue Jays are 3-7 in their last 10, 4-6 on the run line, and the under is 7-3.

The Angels are in top form, while the Blue Jays have been struggling with Springer on the IL. On any given night either of these offenses can go off, but the Angels are just playing better right now. The Blue Jays will figure it out, but I will keep riding the hot hand. Give me the Angeles to win.
