Toronto Blue Jays
The Jays are rolling on all cylinders right now offensively and are producing big time as was expected prior to the start of the season.
During their current hot streak, they’ve generated 63 runs over 9 games. That is 7 runs per game!
They’ve scored less than 4 just once during that stretch which was a lost and scored more than 4 in 7 of those 9 games.
Stroman is showing signs of his usual self again. He’s still young and has a lot of learning to do but it is nice to have seem him pitch well again as of late.
In his last 2 outings, he’s given up just 3 runs in total over 14.2 innings pitched.
He faced the Royals and the Indians, so these were not easy matchups by any stretch of the imagination.
The A’s struggles have been largely due to their lack of runs production.
In their last 10 games they’ve produced just 30 runs. That is less than 3 runs per game and one of those games they scored 9 in a losing cause. So that means they’ve scored just 20 runs in the other 9 games!
They average just 4.1 runs per game on the season which is 7th worst in the league.
Rich Hill has been dominant though, so if there is a game the A’s usually look and expect to win, it’s when he’s on the mound.
He’s been a star this season and in his last 5 starts he’s give up less than 3 runs in each of those starts.
He allowed just 1 run over 6 innings and struck out 10 most recently against the Astros.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction:
This one will be a real tough one to predict especially since the added dynamic of just coming back from all-star break. Who got well needed rest and who partied too much? These are things to consider.
Offensively, the advantage is clearly with the Jays but pitching edge goes to the A’s without a doubt.
Even though Stroshow is pitching well, Rich Hill is pitching incredibly and has been shutting down even the hottest of offenses.
This may become a bullpen battle, which also doesn’t favor the Jays.

This looks to be a low scoring affair unless the Jays can somehow get to Rich Hill. It’s more unlikely than likely.
