In an MLB matchup at the Rogers Centre on Monday, the Toronto Blue Jays and Boston Red Sox square off.
After a sluggish start to the season, the Red Sox have been fairly remarkable as they enter this game with a 42-31 overall record. The Red Sox recently swept the Cleveland Guardians in a series, and the pitching staff only allowed eight runs overall. The Red Sox are eighth best in the league in terms of runs scored per game, averaging 4.81. Trevor Story has 50 RBIs and 11 home homers to his credit.
The Blue Jays, who are on the opposing side of this battle, have an overall record of 40-32 but are coming off back-to-back losses to the Milwaukee Brewers. The pitching struggled on Sunday, allowing 10 runs. With an average of 4.71 runs per game this season, the Blue Jays offence has been their strongest point. With 12 home runs and 39 RBIs, Bo Bichette is enjoying a fantastic season.
Kevin Gausman, a pitcher with the Blue Jays, is currently on the mound. He has a 5-6 record and a 3.19 ERA. Gausman gave up seven hits and two runs over six innings in his most recent outing against the Chicago White Sox. The Blue Jays must provide run support for Gausman in this game since at times he hasn’t received much of it.
In Gausman’s previous four starts, the Blue Jays have a 4–0 record. In their last six games played on Astroturf, the Red Sox are 1-5. In the Blue Jays’ previous five series opening games, the over is 5-0. When their opponent scores 5 runs or more in their prior game, the Over is 5-0 in Gausman’s last 5 starts.
Although Kevin Gausman occasionally hasn’t received much run support, he still has a low ERA. The Red Sox should have a very difficult time scoring in this game because Gausman’s previous start saw him just allow two runs. The Blue Jays, who score 4.71 runs per game on average, will win this game.
