The Cincinnati Reds and Toronto Blue Jays face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at the Rogers Centre. 

The Reds come into this game with an 11-26 record overall but they have at least looked a little more competitive the last few weeks. The Reds have won two games in a row and in each of the games, the pitching has stepped up. On Thursday the Reds only gave up two runs against Cleveland. Brandon Drury has been the top player for the Reds hitting seven home runs and driving in 22 RBIs. 

The Toronto Blue Jays come into this game with a 20-18 record overall and he has won two of his last three games. Over the last two games though, the Blue Jays have socred only four runs total, and they need the offense to be better in this game. George Springer has been the top offensive player for the Blue Jays hitting seven home runs and driving in 21 RBIs.

On the mound for the Reds is Luis Castillo who sits with a 0-1 record and an ERA of 5.59. In his last start against the Pirates, he went five innings giving up four hits and three runs. 

On the other mound for the Blue Jays is Hyun Jin Ryu who sits with a 0-0- record and an ERA of 9.00. In his last start against the Tampa Bay Rays he went 4.2 innings giving up four hits and zero runs. 

The Blue Jays are 4-0 in their last four interleague games. The under is 5-0-1 in the Blue Jays last six games. The under is 4-0 in the Blue Jays last four home games. The over is 4-0 in Ryu’s last four starts against a team with a losing record. 

The Reds might not be a popular pick on Friday, but I expect they are going to find a way to win this game. Ryu is coming off a good start, but he still has an ERA of 9.00, and the Reds bats have shown some flashes of waking up as of late. Back the Reds on the money line.
