Toronto is looking for their first win of the series. This team is so hard to predict from game to game right now.
Toronto Blue Jays
Toronto has dropped the first two games of the series and fallen back to.500. George Springer is dealing with injuries again and the team looked a little lifeless last night.
Robbie Ray has not walked a batter in his last two starts. I am not sure he has done that in the Majors before and it is a great indicator. He does have to watch the home runs though.
Toronto’s bullpen shut things down after Anthony Kay was just ho-hum yesterday. This group is struggling with injuries too but they are not the reason for the Jays inconsistencies. They have been really good.
The A’s carry a three-game winning streak into this game. I would like to see some of their better hitters step up but Jed Lowrie is coming up big seemingly every game. As long as someone does that is the key. Oakland has “it” so far this season.
Last year Chris Bassitt was their best starter. He has not been quite as sharp this season but very consistent. He is showing more dominance too with more than a strikeout per inning. He has odds splits for an Oakland hurler, he has pitched better on the road.
The Oakland bullpen might not develop a true closer this season. They already have three pitchers with a save this season and they are doing well responding to the situation at hand.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction:
I like the Jays to stabilize with Ray on the mound tonight. This team is bobbing up and down around .500 and they need him to get them back over and into the series. The bats have been a little quiet of late and they can take advantage of Bassitt who has struggled pitching at the Oakland Coliseum.
