Toronto Blue Jays vs Oakland Athletics Prediction

The Toronto Blue Jays have had their issues this season and Bowden Francis has been awful in a limited sample size. However, the jury is still out on Mitch Spence, despite the lashes of greatness he's shown his rookie year. Also, the Oakland Athletics aren't a good team in their own right, and they've been shutout twice in their last three games. If the Blue Jays are going to pad wins and stay in the wild card race, these are games they need to take advantage of. Rough pitching matchup or not, I'll gladly lay the cheap price with the Blue Jays to fade the Athletics.
