The MLB is back on the schedule as the Toronto Blue Jays will clash with the Atlanta Braves at SunTrust Park in Atlanta, Georgia in game two of a two-game series. The Blue Jays will give the nod to Sam Gaviglio and the Braves will give a chance to Mike Foltynewicz.
Toronto Blue Jays Form
The Toronto Blue Jays are having a bad season this year. It seems that this bad season might prompt an exodus of the current roster as Happ and Donaldson are drawing the attention of the big guns in the league. The Blue Jays were able to win the previous game with a score of 6-2. It was a good win for Toronto as they showed some good performance after their recent struggles.
The Blue Jays have averaged 4.28 runs per game and have allowed 5.12 runs per game on the road so far.
On the offensive side of the game, the Blue Jays are average this season as they are placed on the 15th place in the league in scoring, putting up 4.39 runs per game, while also holding 25th place in hitting at .236 and 9th place in homers with a total of 117. On the mound, they have been poor as they are on the 23rd place in the league in ERA at 4.53, while also being 25th in WHIP at 1.38 and 19th place in K’s with 746.
Minnesota Braves Form
The Atlanta Braves are having a good season so so far. They are placed on the second place in the National League East and it seems that it will be a tight race for them as they are competing with a resurgent Phillies and a strong Nationals team. The Braves faced a setback as they lost the last game against the Jays with a score of 6-2. They will aim to win this game in order to keep the pace with the rivals for the top spot in their division. Atlanta has averaged 4.85 runs per game and has allowed 4.21 runs per game here at home for the year.
Mike Foltynewicz record against the Blue Jays stands at the 1-0 with a 4.05 ERA in two games.
On the offensive side of the game, the Braves has been very solid this season as they are placed on the 9th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 4.91 runs per game, while also being 5th in hitting at .259 and 19th place in homers with a total of 96. On the mound, they have been average as they are placed on the 12th spot in the league in ERA at 3.89 while also being 14th in WHIP at 1.29 and 12th place in K’s with 790.
The Blue Jays are struggling this season. Although they were able to win the last game against the Braves, they still have problems with their offence and pitching. On the other side, the Braves are a very solid team and have set their sights on the first spot in their division. They will be determined to win this game after being surprised in the previous encounter. I expect a dominant performance by the Braves. Go for a Braves win in this one.
