I have another one cooking for us today. For now the earliest game is Cleveland Indians (51-51) vs. Toronto Blue Jays (54-48). Blue Jays are stacked offensively and rolling. Cleveland is sending a dud to the mound today. Right-handed SP Eli Morgan who gave up 6 earned runs last outing against Toronto. Better hitting environment this time around and the Blue Jays are licking their chops to get a crack at this guy.
Toronto Left-handed SP ‘Clutch’ Robbie Ray is getting the call to face the Indians batting order; which is impressive in their own right. Ray is a strikeout producing machine and he looks to tally up quite few today when he steps on the mound. I anticipate a fun game to kick off the day.
After the Indians dropped a 2-1 loss to the White Sox after Indians SP Cal Quantrill’s career day. I am sensing some bad vibes in this Indians rotation. Without their manager Terry Francona this may not be the most motivated Indians team. Toronto is playing an top-notch brand of baseball and today I am backing the Jays.
Preston’s Best Bet: Toronto Blue Jays -1.5 RL (-136)
