The Toronto Blue Jays narrowly avoided a sweep at the hands of a last place team in the American League after the All-Star break, and they’ll tangle with another cellar dweller on Tuesday when the Arizona Diamondbacks host them for a two-game interleague set at Chase Field.
- The Blue Jays are 9-2-1 to the OVER in their last 12 games as road favorites.
- The Diamondbacks are 4-1 to the OVER in their last 5 games as home underdogs.
- The Diamondbacks are 3-7 SU in their last 10 games as underdog.
Aaron Sanchez and Zack Godley are the probable starters. Sanchez (9-1, 2.97 ERA) has held opponents to two runs or fewer in seven of his last eight outings. The 24-year-old is 6-0 with a 2.20 ERA in 10 road starts on the year.
Godley (2-0, 5.28) is being recalled from Triple-A Reno to take the spot of the struggling Shelby Miller, who was recently sent to the minors. Godley allowed a run in 1.5 innings of relief at Toronto last month.
In Sanchez’s last four starts, the UNDER is a perfect 4-0. The total for the tilt opened at 9.5.
