The Tampa Bay pitching staff has a 3.31 ERA, a 1.13 WHIP, and a .224 opponent batting average this season. The Rays offense has scored 318 runs with a .236 batting average and a .300 on base percentage. Randy Arozarena is batting .258 with seven home runs and 34 RBI’s for the Rays this season. The projected starter for Tampa Bay is Shane Baz, who is 0-1 with a 3.38 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP over 18.2 innings pitched this season.
The Toronto Blue Jays are 44-35 this season and have lost three of their last five games. Toronto won Games 1 and 2 of this series by scores of 4-1 and 9-2. The Toronto pitching staff has a 4.07 ERA, a 1.27 WHIP, and a .253 opponent batting average. The Blue Jays offense has scored 377 runs with a .258 batting average and a .327 on base percentage this year.

Tampa Bay is 1-5 in their last 6 game five’s of a series and 3-7 in their last 10 road games. The under is 4-1 in Tampa Bay’s last 5 Sunday games. Toronto is 5-3 in their last 8 home games and 4-3 in their last 7 games. The over is 4-1 in Toronto’s last 5 Sunday games. The under is 12-3-3 in these two teams last 18 head to head meetings.
Tampa Bay swept Toronto in their double header on Saturday in pretty convincing fashion. Tampa Bay hasn’t been the best offensive team this season, but was able to score a combined 17 runs in both games on Saturday. In this game, Ross Stripling is starting for Toronto and has been terrific in recent starts. Stripling has only allowed five runs in his last five starts. I like Toronto to bounce back after a rough Saturday.
