Blue Jays Look to Continue Strong Pitching 

The Toronto Blue Jays are 13-11 this season and they have won seven of their last ten games. Toronto won game one in this series by a score of 5-3 on Monday, but they dropped game two on Tuesday. Prior to this series, the Blue Jays won two out of three against the Padres, Yankees, and Rockies. Toronto started the season playing inconsistently, but they have won four series in a row and their pitching has been very solid recently. 

The Toronto pitching staff has a 4.18 ERA, a 1.33 WHIP, and a .249 opponent batting average. The Blue Jays offense has scored 93 runs with a .235 batting average and a .320 on base percentage. Daulton Varsho is batting .250 with six home runs and 13 RBI’s for the Blue Jays this season. When you look at the season numbers for Toronto through 24 games, not much sticks out, but they have allowed three runs or fewer in seven of their last ten games, which has sparked their positive play. 

Can KC String Two Wins Together?

The Kansas City Royals are 14-10 this year and they have lost four of their last six games. Kansas City lost game one in this series on Monday, but they won game two by a score of 3-2 on Tuesday night. Prior to this series, the Royals lost two of three against the Orioles but did win two out of three against the White Sox. Kansas City has only won two games in a row on one occasion over their last 12 games, so they will be looking for a big win here. 

The Kansas City pitching staff has a 3.21 ERA, a 1.26 WHIP, and a .243 opponent batting average. The Royals offense has scored 114 runs with a .237 batting average and a .305 on base percentage. Salvador Perez is batting .337 with six home runs and 22 RBI’s for the Royals this year. Kansas City may be in a bit of rut when it comes to stringing wins together, but they are 14-10 on the season and they have very solid hitting AND pitching numbers. 

Starting Pitching Matchup

Toronto is starting Yariel Rodriguez, who is 0-0 with a 2.35 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP over 7.2 innings pitched this year. Rodriguez has allowed two earned runs and seven hits over 7.2 innings in two starts this year. Kansas City is going with Alec Marsh, who is 3-0 with a 3.22 ERA and a 1.03 WHIP over 22.1 innings pitched this season. Marsh has allowed three earned runs or fewer in three of his four starts so far this year and just threw 5.2 scoreless innings against Baltimore in his last start. Both of these pitchers have been solid so far this season, but I have been impressed with Marsh and his ability to limit baserunners. 

Toronto Blue Jays vs Kansas City Royals Prediction

Kansas City comes into this game off of a win in game two on Tuesday, but their inconsistent play over the last couple of weeks makes them hard to trust. Toronto has been very good recently and their pitching staff has led the way. Kansas City is 10-5 at home and they have scored about 20 more runs than Toronto this year. I think we could be in for another lower scoring game, but my Toronto Blue Jays vs Kansas City Royals prediction is for the Royals to pick up a second straight home win.
