The Blue Jays took advantage of the opportunities given to them and started the series off with a win yesterday. The Jays scored eight runs on nine hits as a team and Carlos Villanueva is still perfect with a 6-0 record on the season. Today the Blue Jays will send Henderson Alvarez to the mound was allowed 137 hits in 119 innings of work this season.
The Tigers are no longer first place in the division and the loss on Friday night did not help things. They only amassed three runs on eight hits and Rick Porcello struggled on the mound as well. Detroit will send Anibal Sanchez to the mound was making his first start since being treated from the Marlins. This season in 121 innings of work Sanchez is pitching to a 3.94 ERA.
Toronto is 4-0 in their last four games as an underdog, 5-1 in their last six Saturday games, and 1-5 in Alvarez’s last six home starts. Detroit is 14-5 in their last 19 games overall, 6-3 in their last nine games against a right handed starter, and 3-7 in their last 10 game two of a series. Detroit is 4-2 in their last six meetings in Toronto.
While we don’t think Alvarez is a viable option, we also expect to have Sanchez to have some growing pains coming to the American League. Give us the over for total runs scored in this game but first read a sports book review.
