Toronto comes into this game with a one game lead over Tampa Bay for the first wild card spot in the AL. Tampa Bay leads the season series 9-7 and the next three games between these two teams are going to be crucial to decide who get the first wild card spot. Toronto is starting Mitch White, who has allowed 14 runs over his last 13 innings pitched. Tampa Bay is starting Jeffrey Springs, who has allowed two runs over his last 20.1 innings pitched. I like Tampa Bay to win this game by at least two runs in this game.
