Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays’ bullpen was supposed to be a strength and it was for the majority of the first half. Ever since Jose Alvarado went down and a couple other guys shuffled in and out, basically since the middle of last month, Tampa Bay’s ‘pen has been a liability.
It hasn’t been more so of a liability than in Saturday afternoon’s meltdown in Toronto, where the Rays led, 9–2 in the sixth inning.
Jalen Beeks gave up one in the sixth but came back to throw a shutout seventh and finish his day with four innings and just one run allowed.
The real trouble started in the eighth, when Hunter Wood gave up two runs and then the ninth, when Oliver Drake gave up four to make it 9–9.
Eventually, Emilio Pagan served up the game-winner in the bottom of the 12th. Tampa Bay is officially on the outside of the playoff race, looking in, and headed in the wrong direction.
Toronto Blue Jays
Toronto, meanwhile, got three good innings from a former Ray, Wilmer Font, and a shutout inning from each of the last four relievers it used in Saturday’s win.
The Blue Jays’ 40th win snapped a mini 2-game losing streak and has provided Aaron Sanchez with the chance to help Toronto to a series victory on Sunday.
Sanchez was excellent in 2015 and made the All-Star Team in 2016. He’s finished with a WHIP well above 1.50 in each of the last two seasons and is on that sort of pace this year.
He’s giving up 10.5 hits per nine innings and, for the third consecutive season, averaging exactly 5.0 walks per nine innings.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction: Sanchez.
The numbers are garbage. But I’ve seen Sanchez and that big arm of his throw good games before and I can’t help but think he might just have one in him against a reeling Rays team.
