Toronto fell behind 10-2 through three innings Friday night at Colorado and ultimately lost by a score of 13-6.

Cavan Biggio was 2-for-4 and scored two runs. Edwin Jackson suffered the loss as he surrendered 10 earned runs on 10 hits over 2 1/3 innings, striking out four and walking three.

Story homers twice in win
Colorado pounded visiting Toronto Friday night to the tune of 13-6 to improve to 29-27 overall and 16-12 at home. It was the sixth straight win for the Rockies. Trevor Story had a huge game at the dish as he finished 3-for-4 with two home runs, a double, a walk, four runs scored and seven RBIs. Ramel Tapia was 2-for-4 with a double, a walk and four runs from the leadoff spot. Nolan Arenado finished 3-for-4 with two doubles and three RBIs. Troy Wolters ended the contest 2-for-4 with a walk and two runs. German Marquez picked up the win as he allowed two earned runs on six hits with seven strikeouts and three walks over seven innings.
MLB Betting Trends
The Blue Jays are 1-4 in their last five interleague games. Toronto is 0-4 in its last four road games.
The Rockies are 6-2 in the last eight Gray starts. Colorado is 7-1 in its last eight interleague games.
Colorado is playing strong baseball right now, but no team can win them all and Stroman is a good fit for Coors Field as a groundball artist. He's pitched well much of the season and while Gray is capable of spinning gems, he also has a tendency to sprinkle in lackluster outings. Don't expect nearly the same offensive output by the Rockies today and I'm betting on enough run support to carry Stroman to victory.
