Toronto vs Philadelphia: Blues Jays Continue to Soar Versus Phillies

Toronto vs Philadelphia: Blues Jays Continue to Soar Versus Phillies

Toronto Blue Jays: Looking to keep pace with New York

With New York winning their matinee match versus the Minnesota Twins today, Toronto (66-54) has dropped 1.5 games behind the Yankees in the AL East. The Blue Jays can chop a half game off that lead with win over the fumbling Phillies. Toronto registered a five run sixth inning as they came back from a 5-3 deficit to post an 8-5 win in the series opener. Leading AL MVP candidate Josh Donaldson continues to amaze as he clubbed a pair of homeruns in the Jays win last night.

Philadelphia Phillies: Fighting for the triple crown of Major League Baseball futility

It’s not difficult to understand why Philadelphia one of the worst team in the Majors. The Phillies are second last in runs scored (438) and runs allowed (594) and their .982 fielding percentage is fourth worst. When you own a 46-73 record, and sit 18 games out of first place in your division, it’s tough to get motivated during the dog days of August. Philadelphia showed some fight with an 11-2 record coming out of the All-Star break but they’ve lost four straight and they are 6-9 in August.

Blue Jays vs Phillies MLB Prediction: Although they shouldn’t need it – the Yankees win earlier today adds some motivation into the mix for the Blue Jays tonight. Jays ace LHP Mark Buehrle (13-5 ERA 3.31) toes the rubber versus Phillies rookie LHP Adam Morgan (3-4 ERA 4.11) in the mound matchup. Expecting the Blue Jays bats to stay hot, and trusting that Buehrle will frustrate the Philies, we are backing Toronto with a 500 unit wager on the run line price posted at SportsInteraction.
