Toronto managed to stop their losing streak yesterday afternoon and will now go for the series win against the Red Sox at home as they search to regain AL East supremacy. The Jays have really shone when they’ve sent Aaron Sanchez (13-2, 2.92 ERA) to the hill as they’ve won three of the last four games with the young righty as their starter.
- Sanchez has limited this Red Sox’ lineup to a .210 batting average.
- The Red Sox are 4-1 on the runline in their last 5 games and 6-3 on the moneyline in their last 9.
- Dustin Pedroia currently has a 28-game hit streak against the Blue Jays.
Clay Buchholz (6-10, 4.99 ERA) takes the rock for the Sox tonight and he will be hoping for a result similar to the last one he posted against a Jays’ lineup he has gotten the best of during his career. When he started against Toronto back in April, Buchholz hurled 6.2 innings of shutout baseball but was tagged with the no decision.
Sanchez has fought through a ton of adversity this season as he’s had to endure constant rumors about an innings limit and whether or not he will get to see post season action. He has weathered the storm, though, and has remained the Jays’ most reliable starter. In two starts against the BoSox this season, Sanchez is 1-0 with a 2.63 ERA.
