Blue Jays doubled up at Rockies
Toronto lost by a score of 4-2 Saturday night at Colorado to fall to 21-37 overall and 11-19 on the road. Justin Smoak helped pace the offense as he finished 1-for-4 with a solo home run. Danny Jansen was 1-for-3 with a double, a walk and an RBI. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Lourdes Gurriel Jr. both finished 1-for-4 with the Guerrero hit going for a double, while Gurriel also stole a base. Marcus Stroman suffered the loss as he allowed four runs (three earned) on seven hits with two strikeouts and no walks over seven innings. Aaron Sanchez will start today for the Blue Jays as he comes in with a 3-5 record, 3.75 ERA and 1.52 WHIP with 56 strikeouts over 60 innings.
Gray guides Colorado to win
Jon Gray threw 6 2/3 shutout innings Saturday night in a 4-2 home victory for Colorado over Toronto, its seventh win in a row. Gray allowed two hits with seven strikeouts and three walks. Scott Oberg retired the final batter of the game for his second save. David Dahl helped pace the offense as he finished 3-for-4 with a double and a run. Daniel Murphy was 1-for-3 with a double and two RBIs. Raimel Tapia ended the contest 1-for-4 with a double and a run. Antonio Senzatela will start tonight for the Rockies as he comes in with a 3-4 record, 5.81 ERA and 1.65 WHIP with 29 strikeouts over 48 innings.
MLB Betting Trends
The Blue Jays are 0-5 in their last five road games. Toronto is 1-5 in its last six interleague games.
The Rockies are 7-0 in their last seven home games. Colorado is 4-1 in its last five interleaugue games.
Neither starting pitcher has been dialed in with Sanchez dealing with the tough AL East minus the Orioles regularly, while Senzatela has a built-in excuse of Coors Field but has also struggled on the road. But I have more faith in the Rockies offense showing up and getting the job done today. Take the red-hot squad over the team that is being built for the future.
