The Toronto Blue Jays and Tampa Bay Rays face off on Tuesday in an MLB showdown at Tropicana Field.
The Blue Jays come into this game with a 57-45 record overall and they are coming off two straight wins against the Detroit Tigers. The pitching gave up only four runs in those two games and that was enough to secure the victory. The Blue Jays strength this season has been the offense and they are averaging 4.85 runs per game. Vladimir Guerrero has hit 21 home runs and driven in 68 RBIs.
On the other side of this matchup is the Rays who sit with a 54-48 record overall and they have lost three of their last four games. Over the last three osses they have scored only four runs total and they need to find a way to get the offense going here. The Rays offense is averaging only 4.12 runs per game which is 22nd in the league. The pitching has been the strength giving up 3.94 runs per game.
On the mound for the Blue Jays is Kevin Gausman who sits with a 7-8 record and an ERA of 3.30. In his last start against the St. Louis Cardinals, Gausman went 4.2 innings giving up eight hits and five runs.
On the mound for the Rays is Drew Rasmussen who sits with a 6-3 record and an ERA of 3.17. In his last start against the Baltimore Orioles, he went 4.2 innings giving up six hits and two earned runs.
The Blue Jays are 8-0 in their last eight games following an off day. The Blue Jays are 1-5 in Gausman's last six starts on Astroturf. The under is 5-0 in the Blue Jays last five games. The over is 4-0 in Gausman’s last four Tuesday starts.
The Blue Jays have found success after an off day and I expect that will be the case again here. Gausman currently sits with an ERA of 3.30 The Rays offense has been an issue all season and coming into this game the bats offense has been an issue. Look for the Blue Jays to give Gausman enough run support to secure the victory. Back the Blue Jays on the run line.
