What a wonderful Saturday, blue sky and Baseball
Toronto Blue Jays’ (17-16) vs Tampa Bay Rays (20-13)
TAKE: Blue Jays +110 WIN 5-1
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. takes a 10-game hitting streak into the Toronto Blue Jays’ (17-16) matchup against the Tampa Bay Rays (20-13) at 6:10 PM ET
The Rays will look to Ryan Yarbrough (0-0) in his third start of the season.In his most recent time out on Sunday, the left-hander threw 5 2/3 scoreless innings against the Seattle Mariners while surrendering four hits. In two appearances this season, he has put up a 6.14 ERA and averages 7.4 strikeouts per nine innings.
Hyun-Jin Ryu will take to the mound for the Blue Jays, his third start of the season.
The left-hander’s last appearance was on Saturday, April 16, when he threw 4 2/3 innings, giving up five earned runs while allowing six hits against the Oakland Athletics. He has pitched to a 13.50 ERA this season with 6.1 strikeouts per nine innings compared to 2.5 walks per nine across two games.
Hyun Jin Ryu has only pitched a few innings this season, but he’s been rough to say the least, and this isn’t the easiest game to return to. Ryan Yarbrough has pitched just 7.1 innings, and he’s coming off a five inning shutout against the Mariners. The Toronto Blue Jays are in a bit of a slump during this losing streak, and the Rays have the pitching edge here. BUT you know when it looks easy on paper it NEVER IS
