Both the Detroit Tigers and Toronto Blue Jays are hoping to right the ship when they face each other in a 3 game series at Toronto’s Rogers Center. The Tigers come in having lost 4 in a row while the Blue Jays return from a 3-7 road trip.
The Detroit Tigers come into this series on a 4 game losing streak and having lost 5 of 6 in back-to-back home series against the Angels and Cleveland. This latest stretch has been a blow for a team that won 7 straight coming out of the all-star break.
The Tigers send Wily Peralta to the mound for this one. It’ll be his 13th start since getting called up in mid-June. Since the all-star break, the Tigers are 4-2 in games he starts. He hasn’t pitched more than 5 innings in his last 4 starts, however, so expect the Tigers to need some help from their bullpen early.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Toronto Blue Jays are returning home after a 10-game road trip that saw them win only 3 games. The trip saw them drop further back in the chase for the 2nd American League wild-card spot. Having won just once in their last 6 on the road, they’ll be hoping a return to Rogers Center can right the ship. Having their ace on the mound for this one won’t hurt.
The Blue Jays returned to Rogers Center for the first time in 670 days to kick off a home stretch of 12 games beginning on July 30th. That stretch saw them go 9-3 and pull into striking distance of a playoff spot. Going 3-7 after this in LA, Seattle, and Washington dropped them right back in the standings, however.
They are hoping the next 7 games at Rogers Center pulls them closer to Boston and Oakland.
The Blue Jays are 8-2 in their last 10 with Hyun Jin Ryu on the mound. The 4th best hitting team in baseball knows how to give him run support. They scored less than 5 runs in just 2 of his last 10 games on the mound.

Free Detroit Tigers vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction:
Neither team is coming into this one on a good stretch, but the pitching matchup heavily favors the Blue Jays, as does their 9-3 record at Rogers Center this year. Peralta doesn’t go deep into games and the Blue Jays are a solid hitting team with a track record of giving their ace good run support in recent games.
