Major League Baseball is back in action on Friday evening as the Boston Red Sox will face the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario in game one of a three-game series. The Red Sox will start this game with the experienced pitcher Chris Sale and the Blue Jays will give the nod to Aaron Sanchez.
Boston Red Sox Form
The Boston Red Sox enjoyed a good start of the season with a score of 17-2. They head into the series with the Blue Jays after they beat the Yankees on Thursday with a score of 5-4. The Red Sox won eight of their last 12 and it seems that they are heading for the top spot in the division. The Red Sox so far have averaged 4.67 runs per game and have allowed 3.24 runs per game in the away games so far.
On the offensive side of the game, Boston has been in a great form so far as they are ranked as the 2nd best team in the league in scoring, putting up 5.56 runs per game, while also being the 1st team in hitting at .270 and 5th in homers with a total of 49. On the mound, their stats are solid as they are placed on the 8th spot in the league in ERA at 3.61, while also being the 6th team in WHIP at 1.18 and 5th in K’s with 355.
Toronto Blue Jays Form
The Blue Jays had a good start to the season, but it seems that they have dropped their form, as they will enter Thursday night’s game having lost four of their last seven games. They are hoping to get back on winning ways and to keep the momentum after winning against the Mariners on Thursday with a score of 5-2. The Blue Jays have averaged a solid 5.44 runs per game and have conceded 4.11 runs per game here at home so far this season.
On the offensive side of the game, Toronto has been very good as they are placed on the 6th spot in the league in scoring, putting up an average of 5.00 runs per game. The Jays are also ranked on the 23rd spot in hitting at .231 and 3rd in homers with 52. On the mound, their stats are poor as they are placed on the 21st spot in the league in ERA at 4.38, while also ranking 23rd in WHIP at 1.41 and 16th in K’s with 312.
The Toronto Blue Jays were able to bounce back in their last game against the Marines but I think that their struggles are not over. On the other side, the Red Sox won against a strong Yankees team and I expect that they will keep their momentum in this game against the Jays. Take the Red Sox in this one.
