The MLB best pick from Wednesday was the easiest of winners as the Oakland Athletics completely pound the Toronto Blue Jays 16-0 as a +117 road underdog. The Athletics have been one of the hottest Major League Baseball teams as their win on Wednesday moved their win streak to seven straight wins. The Oakland pitching staff has been outstanding as the club sits fourth in Major League Baseball with a staff ERA of 3.39 and their staff WHIP of 1.23 ranks the club fourth as well in all of baseball. It was another quality start from A.J. Griffin for the Athletics as despite a huge lead he was able to concentrate on the hill and allow no earned runs and three hits over six innings of work.

The pitching matchup for Thursday will pit Luis Mendoza for the Royals on the bump squaring off with Jason Vargas for the Mariners. Seattle has gone under in six straight games.
