The Blue Jays are the road favorite in this ALDS game, but they are down 0-2 and hope to avoid the sweep tonight. In their last 7 playoff series they have only been down 0-2 one time and that was back in 1989 when the lost in 5 games to the Oakland A’s in the ALCS.
The Rangers have won their last 3 games overall while the Blue Jays have dropped 4 in a row and 6 of their last 7 games.
In the regular season the Blue Jays had the highest scoring team in baseball, but they have only combined to score 7 runs in losing the first 2 games of this series.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Blue Jays rank 12th in the Majors in team ERA and they hope that Estrada keeps up his great 2nd half pitching. After the All Star break he led the AL in holing opponents to a .183 average.
Toronto has won 5 of their last 7 games on the road when Estrada has gotten the starting nod.
The Blue Jays are 10-4 in their last 14 games facing a team with a winning record with Estrada on the hill.
The Blue Jays have dropped 4 of their last 5 games on the road.
The Rangers rank 3rd in runs scored and while they only rank 23rd in team ERA their pitching has been solid so far in this ALDS.
Martin Perez was only 3-6 this season, but the Rangers have won 4 of their last 5 games at home with him on the hill.
While the Rangers have been solid at home as of late with Perez getting the start they have lost 14 of their last 20 overall against a team with a winning record with Perez on the hill.
The Blue Jays will get to Perez tonight and that will be the main reason they avoid the sweep.
