Toronto Blue Jays
Removed from the playoff scene, Toronto remains relevant through hyped prospects Bo Bichette and Vlad Guerrero Jr. Since August 23, Bichette carries a .351 batting average and played a huge factor during Toronto’s Saturday upset of Houston. Bichette added two hits and two runs as Cavan Biggio put his Hall Of Fame father’s old team away with a two-run blast.
Baseball purists relished the bittersweet moment of the younger Biggio claiming his 12th career home run vs. the club synonymous with dad Craig Biggio. The younger killer B had this to say postgame:
“I’m not going to lie, he (dad Craig) definitely wants them (Houston) to win but he wants me to do well. Last night was kind of the ideal scenario for him.”
Meanwhile, Toronto is 3-8 during its latest eleven-game stretch.
Jacob Waguespack (4-2, 3.93 ERA) gets the starting nod this afternoon for the Jays. During his most recent appearance, Waguespack allowed five runs through three innings vs. Atlanta as the Braves split the teams’ interleague series that day.
Toronto is 4-4 when the 25-year-old rookie hurler opens.
With September in the air, Atlanta is riding an 11-2 crest to keep equally hot Washington at bay for the NL East crown. After gaining no less than a split in recent series’ vs. Miami, NYM, LAD and the White Sox, Brian Snitker’s men are scoring ten runs per over their last three. During that time, veteran catcher Tyler Flowers is slashing .455/.538/.811 with four RBI’s and five runs scored.
Flowers added two runs and an RBI, and Dallas Kuetchel two RBI’s, as Atlanta sprung a six-run first on Sat. against Reynaldo Lopez. Lopez was pulled before the first frame ended.
Atlanta keeps gaining surprise production from its scrap heap pickups as Matt Joyce had another positive outing this weekend: Joyce is hitting .291 this year with the Braves.
Facing a strong challenge from Washington through the stretch run, Atlanta exudes veteran poise and the calm certainty of a club readying for October.
The Braves are 1-1 this season vs. interleague rival Toronto. Atlanta used timely offense to down the Jays 9-4 on August 28.
Phenom 21-year-old Mike Soroka looks to rebound from an eight-hit, two-run August 27 loss vs. Toronto today. Soroka held his own through six innings that night, but Atlanta’s bullpen crumbled, allowing eight runs as the Jays exited a 10-3 winner.
Overall, the Braves are 16-8 when Soroka takes the hill.
This season, the precocious All Star hurler is among the NL’s ERA (2.44) & WHIP leaders 1.09.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction:
Pressured by Washington’s rapid climb, Atlanta will enter attack mode today vs. an outmatched Toronto group. Meanwhile, the Blue Jays won’t go quietly, but the offense they provided in the teams’ last meeting will fall short opposite Mike Soroka.
Look for Atlanta to provide a balanced effort this afternoon behind Soroka and a streaking offense.
