The Toronto Blue Jays and the Oakland Athletics will play the 3rd game of the series at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum on Wednesday. The Athletics beat the Blue Jays again 5-3 on Tuesday's game to take the lead 2-0 on the series.
The Athletics get here with a 28-55 record and have won 3 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 3.17 runs per game. They're batting for .212 AVG, 260 runs scored in 568 hits and 58 home runs, ranking #29 in offense in the league, the second worst just above the Detroit Tigers. Tony Kemp is batting for .227 AVG. Seth Brown leads the team with 36 RBI and 10 home runs.
Defensively are allowing 4.54 runs per game, ranking #22 in the league. Paul Blackburn leads the team with a 2.90 ERA, 67 strikeouts and 6 wins recorded with the A's.
Jose Berrios (6-4, 5.72 ERA) will be on the mound for the Athletics in the 3rd game of the series. Berrios earned the win against the Rays on Friday, allowing two runs on eight hits in five innings while striking out three and walking two. He has a 1-3 record with an ERA of 4.27 and 36 strikeouts in 7 appearances against the Athletics in his career.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Blue Jays get here with a 44-35 record and have lost 5 games in a row. The team is averaging 4.7 runs per game and they're batting for .257 AVG, have 381 runs scored in 708 hits and 104 home runs, ranking #9 in offense in the league behind the St Louis Cardinals. Vladimir Guerrero Jr leads the team with .268 ERA, 53 RBI and 19 home runs. Alejandro Kirk is batting for .315 AVG.
Defensively as they are allowing 4.46 runs per game and rank #21 in the league. Alek Manoah leads the team with a 2.33 ERA and 90 strikeouts recording 9 wins for the Jays.
James Kaprielian (1-5, 5.43 ERA) will be on the mound for the Athletics in the 3rd game of the series. Kaprielian earned the win over the Mariners by allowing one run on three hits and two walks in six innings.
The total has gone OVER in 13 of Toronto's last 17 games.
Toronto Blue Jays are 2-4 SU in their last 6 games when playing on the road against Oakland.
Oakland Athletics are 6-12 SU in their last 18 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Oakland's last 6 games against Toronto.
The Blue Jays continue to struggle as they have lost 5 games in a row and are averaging only 2.8 runs per game in the last 5. Jose Berrios will get the ball for Toronto and he's not having a good season and has a 4.27 ERA against the A's in his career. This is just the second series the Athletics have won at home this season so they'll be motivated for this game but Kaprielian has been up and down this season and is holding a 5.43 ERA. I expect both offenses to get at least 3 runs from each starter so my best play for this game is the over.
PICK: Over 8 (-110)
