Toronto Blue Jays
What was a small winning streak heading into this series with Houston has quickly evaporated. In the first two games on this series, the Blue Jays have been outscored 22-4. They will look to salvage one of three as they prepare for the series finale. Trent Thornton will be the guy Toronto calls on to pitch on Sunday. Thornton is 1-5 this season with an earned run average of 4.78. Seeing that pitching has been terrible in this series so far, gives me no confidence in the Blue Jays.
As for their offense, well they have just been non-existent. They are near dead last in every major offensive category and things do not look to be getting better anytime soon. Vlad Jr. was also hurt in game one, which forced him to miss game two. It is unknown if he will play game three but without him it seems like the Blue Jays will not have much going for them. If Toronto cannot score early, it will be another long afternoon.
The Astros are red hot right now and they do not even have some of their best players. They are going for a sweep over Toronto on Sunday and I expect their bats to be hot again. As for pitching, they will send Brad Peacock to the mound. Peacock is 6-3 on the year. He has an earned run average of 3.42. Even if Peacock gives up a few runs, the Astros offense should be able to provide enough run support to help Peacock get the win.
As I mentioned, the Astros’ offense are killing the ball at the moment. They are averaging 11 runs through two games this series and I do not see them slowing down against the likes of Trent Thornton. There is a reason why they are 5th in runs scored per game and 2nd in batting average. Also, they are 4th in home run, so look for a few long balls on Sunday. As long as they score several runs, their pitching staff will do the rest.
