Mike Lundin‘s Red Sox vs. Blue Jays Free Pick
Start Time: April 19, 2017, 7:05 PM
The Toronto Blue Jays are an MLB-worst 2-11 on the season, but at least their bats came alive in yesterday’s 8-7 loss in the opener of this three-game series against the Boston Red Sox. I think we’ll see plenty of runs again tonight with Rick Porcello and Francisco Liriano on the mound.
Porcello (1-1, 7.56 ERA) has posted a 6.23 ERA in nine career games (eight starts) at Toronto. He was torched for eight runs on eight hits while serving up four homers in 4 1/3 innings of a 10-5 loss against Tampa Bay his last time out. Liriano (0-1, 9.00) has posted a 5.97 ERA in six career starts vs. Boston and is likely to get roughed up again by a Red Sox side that has scored 19 runs through its last three games alone.
We can also note that the over is 6-0 in umpire Doug Eddings’ last six games behind home plate overall, 6-2 in his last eight games vs. Toronto and 18-7-1 last 26 vs. Boston.
