Blue Jays Preview
The Toronto Blue Jays are 27-25 this season and they have lost seven of their last nine games. Toronto won Game 1 of this series by a score of 3-1 on Friday night. The Toronto pitching staff has a 3.96 ERA, a 1.28 WHIP, and a .237 opponent batting average this year. The Blue Jays offense has scored 247 runs with a .265 batting average and a .332 on base percentage. Bo Bichette is batting .329 with 10 home runs and 33 RBI’s for the Blue Jays. The projected starting pitcher for Toronto is Chris Bassitt, who is 5-3 with a 3.03 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP over 62.1 innings pitched this season.
The Minnesota Twins are 26-25 this season and they have lost six of their last eight games. Prior to losing the first game in this series, Minnesota lost two out of three games against the Giants. The Minnesota pitching staff has a 3.39 ERA, a 1.18 WHIP, and a .225 opponent batting average. The Twins offense has scored 231 runs with a .228 batting average and a .311 on base percentage this season. Byron Buxton is batting .231 with 10 home runs and 23 RBI’s for the Twins. The projected starting pitcher for Minnesota is Pablo Lopez, who is 2-3 with a 3.90 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP over 60.0 innings pitched this year.
Toronto is 41-19 in their last 60 Saturday games and 2-7 in their last 9 games. The over is 6-1 in Toronto’s last 7 games. Minnesota is 4-1 in their last 5 game two’s of a series and 2-6 in their last 8 games. The under is 5-1 in Minnesota’s last 6 game two’s of a series. The over is 6-2 in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings.
Both of these teams have struggled over the last 10 days, but Toronto was able to get the win in Game 1 on Friday night. Minnesota has had some issues offensively, but their pitching staff has been very good this season. The Twins will start Pablo Lopez, who has allowed two earned runs or fewer in three of his last four starts. Toronto is starting Chris Bassitt, who has allowed two earned runs over his last four starts (29.1 IP). I think we are going to see another low scoring game and I am taking the under here.
