The Toronto Blue Jays have now lost six straight games to the suddenly resurgent Chicago White Sox who won three of four games in Boston and the first game of this series last night. Toronto has now lost four of their last five and will send RA Dickey to the mound to try to turn things around.
- In 12 at-bats vs Dickey, Jose Abreu has a .417 average with three home runs.
- Gonzalez allowed five runs in 5.1 innings pitched vs the Jays in the series in April.
- The Blue Jays are 1-5 in their last six games in Chicago.
Unfortunately for Jays’ backers, things aren’t exactly looking up for Dickey. In his last start against the White Sox in late April, he allowed six earned runs in six innings of work, and in five day starts this season, he has an ugly 4.71 ERA. On the bright side for the knuckleballer, he’s done his best work on the road this season, with a 2.98 ERA in eight starts outside of Toronto.
Chicago will send Miguel Gonzalez to the mound, who’s gotten lit up in his three home starts this season, going 1-2 with a 5.87 ERA
Keep an eye on the total, which opened the day at 9.5. The teams have combined to go 3-8 OVER/UNDER in their last 11 games.
