Blue Jays Struggled on Friday

The Blue Jays really struggled on Friday and the offense only managed two runs on the way to the four run defeat. Alek Manoah started and he went 4.2 innings giving up five hits and four runs. The offense had ten hits, but they only managed two runs. The Blue Jays are averaging 3.89 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.51 runs per game. The offense is ranked 24th in the league while the pitching is ranked 18th. They currently have a run differential of -0.61 which is 24th in the league. Daulton Varsho has hit nine home runs and driven in 27 RBIs so far this season. Getting the start for the Blue Jays will be Jose Berrios who sits with a 5-3 record and an ERA of 2.98. In his last start against the Chicago White Sox, he went six innings giving up eight hits and three runs. 

Why the Blue Jays Will Win

  • The Tigers have lost each of their last 11 games against AL East opponents following a home win.
  • The Blue Jays have won each of their last six games against the Tigers following a loss.
  • The Tigers have failed to cover the run line in seven of their last eight home games against AL East opponents following a win.
  • The Blue Jays have covered the run line in four of their last five games against the Tigers following a loss.
  • The Tigers have trailed after 3 innings in each of their last three day games.

Tigers Offense Looked Good on Friday

The Tigers offense looked good on Friday scoring six runs and that led to the victory. Kerry Carpenter and Colt Keith both finished with a home run. Kenta Maeda got the start and he went five innings giving up four hits and zero earned runs. The Tigers are averaging 4.06 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.22 runs per game. The offense is ranked 21st in the league while the pitching is ranked 11th. They currently have a run differential of -0.16 which is 16th in the league. In this game the Tigers are going to need the offense to get to Berrios early. If they let Berrios settle in this will be a long game. The Tigers will meet the Pirates after this series.

Why the Tigers Will Win

  • The home team has won five of the Tigers' last six games.
  • The Blue Jays have lost four of their last five road games against AL Central opponents.
  • The Blue Jays have failed to cover the run line in seven of their last eight road games against AL Central opponents following a loss.
  • The Tigers have covered the run line in 10 of their last 11 Saturday day home games against AL East opponents.

Toronto Blue Jays vs Detroit Tigers Prediction

The Blue Jays are going to find success in this game. Berrios sits with an ERA of 2.98 and he’s going to step up in a big way here. The Tigers offense has been very inconsistent this season and he’s going to really struggle in this game. The Blue Jays bats are going to get out to a fast start here, and that will be the difference as Toronto is going to cruise. I don’t expect the Tigers to score more than two runs here. Back the Blue Jays on the run line.
