Preview

The Boston Red Sox and the Toronto Blue Jays will play the 3rd game of the series at the Fenway Park on Sunday afternoon. The Blue Jays took the win again 4-1 and secured the series. Manoah pitched 7 innings holding the Red Sox to only 1 run.

Toronto Blue Jays

The Blue Jays get here with a 52-43 record and have won 7 of their last 8 games. The team is averaging 4.70 runs per game and they're batting for .262 AVG, have 428 runs scored in 830 hits and 119 home runs, ranking #8 in offense in the league behind the Boston Red Sox. Vladimir Guerrero Jr leads the team with .268 ERA, 57 RBI and 20 home runs. Alejandro Kirk is batting for .317 AVG.

Defensively as they are allowing 4.34 runs per game and rank #18 in the league. All-Star Alek Manoah leads the team with a 2.24 ERA and 110 strikeouts recording 11 wins for the Jays.

Probable Pitcher:  Ross Stripling (5-3, 3.03 ERA)

Stripling will be on the mound in the 3rd game of the series for Toronto. Stripling earned the win against the Phillies on Wednesday after pitching seven innings and allowing two runs (one earned) on two hits while striking out six. He is 2-3 with an ERA of 6.09 and 34 strikeouts in 8 appearances versus the Red Sox in his career.

Boston Red Sox

The Red Sox get here with a 48-47 record and have lost 8 of their last 9 games. The team is averaging 4.60 runs per game. They're batting for .256 AVG, 430 runs scored in 823 hits and 91 home runs, ranking #8 in offense in the league, behind the Boston Red Sox. Rafael Devers is leading the team with 22 home runs and 55 RBI, batting for .324 AVG while Trevor Story leads in RBI's with 58. 

Defensively they are allowing 4.44 runs per game and rank #20 in the league. Nick Pivetta leads the team with 8 wins recorded with a 4.50 ERA and 104 strikeouts.

Probable Pitcher:  Brayan Bello (0-1, 10.13 ERA)

Bello will be on the mound in the 3rd game of the series for the Red Sox. Manager Alex Cora indicated Friday that there was a "good chance" that Bello would start Sunday's series finale against Toronto, and the right-hander will officially make his third major-league start. He has been pounded by the Rays in his 2 starts this season.

BETTING TRENDS

Toronto Blue Jays are 9-2 SU in their last 11 games against Boston.

Toronto Blue Jays are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games when playing on the road against Boston.

Boston are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games when playing at home against Toronto.

The total has gone OVER in 10 of Boston's last 13 games against an opponent in the American League.

Prediction

Things didn't work out again for the Red Sox against Manoah who allowed 7 hits but only 1 run. The Red Sox manager will give another chance to Brayan Bello who has been pounded in his first 2 starts this season with 5 and 4 runs. The Blue Jays will send Ross Stripling to start this game and he has done a great job this season and allowed 2 runs across 5 innings the last time he faced the Red Sox. It's hard to trust in Bello and until he shows a better performance in the majors I'm gonna have to keep fading him. Give me the Blue Jays again.

PICK: Blue Jays ML (-130)
