The Red Sox come into Toronto Friday night to kick off a vital series in a race for top spot in the AL East.
The Red Sox have retaken the AL East lead by winning two games in a row and five of their last seven games.
The Jays are struggling mightily, losing three games in a row and five of their last six games.
The Red Sox have their ace on the mound, Rick Porcello. He’s 19-3 with a 3.23 ERA and 1.02 WHIP.
Marco Estrada gets the nod for the Jays, he’s 8-7 with a 3.56 ERA and 1.10 WHIP.
Boston Red Sox
The Red Sox have really taken advantage of the Jays struggles and now hold a one game lead over them in the AL East.
They’ve been able to do so by providing big time offense. In their last two games, they’ve scored 12 runs and in their last seven games, they’ve generated 48 runs.
Not only has their offense been clicking but they’ve been receiving excellent pitching as well.
In their last six games, they’ve allowed just 10 runs, which is phenomenal considering they give up 4.4 runs per game on the season.
Rick Porcello is always their rock and he proved it in a seven inning two run performance in his last outing which was against the Atheletics.
In fact, he hasn’t allowed more than three runs since July 24th and has gone a minimum of seven innings in each of his eight starts since then.
Toronto Blue Jays
Blue Jays nation is panicking right now because of the teams recent struggles but they’ll be fired up for this extremely important game.
The Jays have not lost more than five in a row at any point this season and losing five of their last six has happened only two times this season, the last time was way back in May, where they actually lost five in a row and six of seven.
Run production has struggled, as they’ve left many runners in scoring position, including eight in their last game on Wednesday, where they were shut out by the Yankees.
Marco Estrada has also been struggling, which is not a good sign for him or the ball club. He’s been their most consistent pitcher since last season up until this recent struggle.
The struggle began when the six man rotation for the Jays went into effect.
He allowed five runs over five innings in his last start and has had only one great start in his last four.

Free Boston Red Sox vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction:
Rick Porcello is pitching incredibly and the Jays offense is struggling at the moment. However, the Jays are just a couple hits away from putting up big time runs as they’ve left a load of players in scoring position.
Estrada has struggled lately but he’s been a rock for the Jays and he looked good in his last outing until his final inning. His start prior he gave up just one to the Orioles, so that is a good sign.
The Sox have been scoring in bunches but also were limited to just a few runs in their two losses prior to their two game winning streak.
This one just might stay low scoring.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Under 9
This is such an important game for both ball clubs and the Red Sox are much hotter than the Jays.
However, the Jays have been close in many of their losses. Literally a hit or two away from winning two of three of those games.
I think coming home will give them a boost and they will squeak this one out.
