The Toronto Blue Jays will play the Boston Red Sox in Game 2 of their series at Fenway Park on Wednesday night.
The Toronto Blue Jays are 6-5 this season and have alternated wins and losses over their last 10 games. Toronto lost to Boston in Game 1 of the series by a score of 2-1. Prior to that loss, Toronto won two of three against Oakland. The Toronto pitching staff has a 4.22 ERA, a 1.19 WHIP, and a .228 opponent batting average this season. The Blue Jays offense has scored 43 runs with a .250 batting average and a .312 on base percentage. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has five home runs and 10 RBI’s for the Blue Jays this season. The projected starter for Toronto is Jose Berrios, who is 0-0 with a 11.81 ERA and a 2.63 WHIP over 5.1 innings pitched.
The Boston Red Sox are 6-5 this season and have won three of their last four games. Prior to the Game 1 win, Boston split a four game series with Minnesota. The Boston pitching staff has a 3.86 ERA, a 1.27 WHIP, and a .225 opponent batting average. The Red Sox offense has scored 47 runs with a .228 batting average and a .283 on base percentage. Alex Verdugo has a .333 batting average, three home runs, and eight RBI’s for the Red Sox this season. The projected starter for Boston is Nick Pivetta, who is 0-2 with a 9.39 ERA and a 1.83 WHIP over 7.2 innings pitched this year.
The under is 9-1 in Toronto’s last 10 road games and the under is 7-1 in Toronto’s last 8 games on grass. Boston is 0-5 in Pivetta’s last 5 starts on grass and the over is 6-0 in Pivetta’s last 6 starts as an underdog. Toronto is 4-2 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.
Berrios has been roughed up in his first two outings of the year, but so has Pivetta. Will either of these pitchers be able to piece together a decent start or are we in for a shootout in Boston? I am taking the over in this game with the pitching matchup, but also because Toronto has one of the better scoring offenses in baseball.
