The Blue Jays (9-11) are on a 4-game losing streak and just lost to Boston (11-9) on Monday night (6-5) at Fenway. Clay Buchholz (1-2) is starting for Boston; Drew Hutchinson (2-0) is starting for Toronto.
Hutchinson is 2-0, but he has a 5.48 ERA and has been lit up twice. Buchholz is coming off a 10 SO and 1 ER performance against Tampa Bay – Buchholz now has 29 SO’s in just 22.1 innings.
Pablo Sandoval went 2 for 2 on Monday, with a HR and 3 RBI’s. Devon Travis is swinging a hot bat for the Jays, but Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion are both hitting well below .200 on the season.
Toronto are clearly already a mess this season and at –123 I’ll bet on Buchholz and the Red Sox.
Oakland (8-12) are another struggling team, as they’ve lost four games in a row too. The Angels (9-10) lost to the Rangers (5-4) on Sunday night, but will look to open up this divisional series with a win.
Sonny Gray (2-0) is on the mound for the A’s, while the Angels send Jared Weaver (0-2).
Weaver has a 5.24 ERA, but that’s because of two poor starts to begin the season. In his last two starts he hasn’t gotten a decision, but he has gone 6 innings in each and allowed 3 ER’s total.
Mike Trout is hitting it well and just had a HR in the Angels last game. Kole Calhoun is hitting it well too, but LAA need some other hitters to step up in order to catch the Astros in the AL West.
