The Boston Red Sox and Toronto Blue Jays face off on Saturday in an MLB showdown at the Rogers Centre. On Friday it was the Toronto Blue Jays that secured the 9-0 victory. 

The Red Sox sit with a 75-82 record overall and this has been quite the disappointing season for them.On Friday it was again the offense that really struggled, failing to score any runs and that led to the defeat. Overall this season it’s been the pitching has been an issue giving up 4.85 runs per game which is 8th best in the league. Rafael Devers has hit 27 home runs and driven in 87 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Blue Jays who sit with an 88-69 record overall and they had lost two games in a row before winning on Friday. In the two losses, the Blue Jays offense only scored five runs total. The Blue Jays offense has been the strength this season averaging 4.72 runs per game. Vladimir Guerrero is having a strong season hitting 31 home runs and driving in 95 RBIs. 

On the mound for the Red Sox will be Brayon Bello who sits with a 2-7 record and an ERA of 4.39. In his last start he went five innings giving up two hits and zero runs. 

On the mound for the Blue Jays will be Ross Stripling who sits with a 9-4 record an ERA of 3.16. In his last start against the Tampa Bay Rays, he went five innings giving up six hits and one run. 

The Blue Jays are 6-0 in Stripling’s last six starts on five days of rest. The Red Sox are 0-8 in Bello’s last eight starts against a team with a winning record. The under 7-0 in Bello’s last seven starts. The Over is 5-0-1 in the Blue Jays last 6 games vs. a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30.

Bello and Stripling are both coming off strong starts, and I expect runs are going to be hard to come by in this game. Stripling sits with an ERA of 3.16 and the Red Sox really struggled to score on Friday. This is going to be a 3-1 or 4-1 type of game, and the under is going to cash with ease.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
