Toronto Blue Jays
Our prediction about Liriano was scarily accurate yesterday. He did walk five and didn’t make it out of the fourth inning, handing Tampa Bay an early lead.
Toronto came back to tie the game in the seventh when Kendrys Morales launched a two-run dinger. But the Rays pushed one across in the bottom of the inning to re-take the lead.
Then Toronto broke out in the eighth; five runs put the game away then and there. The big inning was highlighted by yet another Morales homer and it served as a reminder that the Blue Jays can still score some runs in a hurry, despite their slow start to the season.
Now they hand the ball to Marco Estrada in a funny mid-afternoon game at the Trop. Estrada is a tough match for any team and Tampa Bay will be sure to have to earn everything on Saturday.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays will try to rebound after wasting six good innings from Archer, who struck out 11. Jake Odorizzi will be the man leading the charge.
He’s awfully similar to Estrada and if you like the changeup, this pitching matchup is for you.
Neither guy throws particularly hard but hitters will tell you they do because of the excellent change that each uses in tandem with a low 90s fastball. Both pitchers are around the strike zone and will command both sides of the plate. It should be an terrific matchup between two of the league’s more underrated pitchers who have been around for a while.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction: Both starters have the change-ups working and keep the offenses quiet… early.
Friday proved that there isn’t much you can put past either bullpen in this series. But the starters should be tough to hit this afternoon.
