Blue Jays Preview
The Toronto Blue Jays are 1-0 this season after they defeated St. Louis by a score of 10-9 on Thursday. Toronto recorded 19 hits and scored in six of the nine innings for the win. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. led the Blue Jays offense by going 2-4 with three RBI’s in the game. Alek Manoah struggled in his start, going 3.1 innings and allowing five earned runs on nine hits. The projected starting pitcher for Toronto is Kevin Gausman, who was 12-10 with a 3.35 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP last season.
The St. Louis Cardinals are 0-1 this season after they dropped their first game against Toronto by a score of 10-9. St. Louis recorded 15 hits and was able to score in six of the nine innings in the loss. Nolan Arenado led the Cardinals offense with three RBI’s and two hits. Miles Mikolas only lasted 3.1 innings and allowed five earned runs on ten hits in the game. The projected starting pitcher for St. Louis is Jack Flaherty, who was 2-1 with a 4.25 ERA and a 1.61 WHIP last year.
Toronto is 5-1 in their last 6 interleague games and 37-15 in their last 52 Saturday games. The over is 4-1 in Toronto’s last 5 game two’s of a series. St. Louis is 4-1 in their last 5 interleague games and 38-18 in their last 56 game two’s of a series. The over is 22-9 in St. Louis’ last 31 games against the AL East. The over is 11-1 in these two teams last 12 head to head meetings in St. Louis.
These two teams played a very entertaining game on Thursday, but Toronto was able to get the one-run victory. Toronto has a very good lineup and will be pitching Gausman, who had a solid season last year. St. Louis will start Flaherty, who didn’t pitch much last season due to injury. I think we are going to see another game with plenty of hits, so I like this game to over the total.
