The Texas Rangers face the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday, April 9th, 2022 at Rogers Centre for game two of a three-game series in Toronto. 

The Toronto Blue Jays defeated the Texas Rangers by the final score of 10-8 in the first game of this series. Toronto found itself down 7-0 in its home park in the first game of what is supposed to be a big year for the Jays. When everything seemed as if it were going wrong, the Jays flipped the script and made a heroic comeback in the middle innings. Toronto showed just how lethal its lineup can be as the Blue Jays erased the seven-run deficit in quick fashion and took an 8-7 lead. The Rangers were able to nod it back up at 8 with a run in the 7th of an Adolis Garcia homer, but the Blue Jays quickly answered with a run in the bottom half of the inning and an insurance tally in the bottom of the 8th. Toronto is now 1-0 and is tied with the Rays and Yankees for first in the early AL East standings. 

The Toronto Blue Jays are projected to bring right-hander Kevin Gausman to the mound for the second game of this series. Gausman was one of the big acquisitions the Blue Jays made in the offseason after losing the AL Cy Young winner in Robbie Ray to free agency. Gausman was fantastic as a Giant last year, finishing in the top-10 in NL Cy Young voting himself and having a career year. Gausman will look for a strong start in his Toronto debut.

The Texas Rangers are projected to send Dane Dunning to the bump to take on a dangerous Blue Jays on Saturday. Dunning was 5-10 last season with a 4.51 ERA in 2021 in 27 games (25 starts). 

After Friday's emotional game, I have to take the Blue Jays in this spot yet again and this time, I will lay the run line. Toronto's offense is too much for this Rangers' team to handle, especially at the Rogers Centre. Every batter in this lineup has the ability to make the opposing pitcher pay, and we saw a collective performance from Toronto on Friday night as almost everyone in the lineup produced in some sort of way.
