Boston Red Sox
It was certainly an up-and-down performance for Johnson who picked up his second win of the season in a 15-7 routing of the New York Yankees.
He went five innings giving up six hits, four earned runs, and three home runs while he surprisingly struck out 11 and walked two.
In 65.0 innings of work this season, Johnson owns a solid strikeout (8.72 K/9) to walk rate (3.05 BB/9), while he has also been solid a stranding base runners (78.1% LOB%), but he could work on limiting the long ball (1.25 HR/9).
The end-result is a solid 3.74 ERA and slightly higher 4.03 FIP.
Boston continues their winnings ways as they were about to win four of their last five contests in the past week.
During that span their lineup is slashing .274/.355/.480 to go with 22 extra-base hits and 28 RBI.
Toronto Blue Jays
Mike Hauschild was solid in his first appearance in the MLB this year where he put in a quality and earned his first win of the season in a 7-3 victory over the Seattle Mariners.
He went six scoreless-innings giving up just four hits while he struck out five and walked one.
In 97.2 innigs of work in Triple-A this season, Hauschild owned a decent strikeout (8.57 K/9) to walk rate (3.50 BB/9) rate, while he was solid at limiting the long ball (0.65 HR/9), but had trouble stranding base runners (64.7% LOB%).
The end-result was a high 4.88 ERA and a lower 4.09 FIP.
Toronto has played mediocre baseball in the past week winning three of their six contests.
During that span their lineup is slashing .273/.320/.464 to go with 23 extra-base hits and 26 RBI.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Red Sox -1.5
With only 14 innings of big league experience, Hauschild is about to face the best lineup in baseball who have made righties pay this year with a 61-23 record.
Johnson may give up some runs here and there, but I just expect this Boston lineup to knock Toronto around in this outing.
