Rich Hill could be in line to face Toronto this Monday for the Red Sox. Hill was successful in his last start, pitching for 5.0 innings and surrendering 3 earned runs on 7 hits with 6 strikeouts in a 5-4 victory at home over the Detroit Tigers. In the month of June, Hill is 2-1 with a 3.43 ERA across 21.0 innings (5 starts). As for the season, Hill is 3-4 with a 4.35 ERA nad 1.25 WHIP. He hasn’t pitched a lot at Rogers Centre despite being in the big leagues since 2005, going 1-0 with a 2.70 ERA in four appearances that stretched across 10.0 total innings at Rogers Centre in his career. Offensively, the Red Sox have Xander Bogaerts as a major threat to opposing starter Kevin Gausman. The shortstop is batting .348 (16-of-46) in his career against the Blue Jays starter.
Betting on the Toronto Blue Jays (-1.5)
Regular Season Record: 40-32
Gausman has seemingly mastered the Red Sox, at least for this season. The 31-year-old pitcher has made two starts this year against Boston and has gone 1-0 with just an earned run allowed on 11 hits in 14.0 total innings for a 0.64 ERA. The Blue Jays are 2-0 in games this season where Gausman started versus113 Boston. Hopefully for Gausman and the Blue Jays, the pitcher seeing the Red Sox again would snap him out of his current slump. The Blue Jays are 0-4 in Gausman’s last113 four starts, racking up a 5.50 ERA in those games. In any case, Toronto’s got a robust offense that is in the top 10 in the majors in terms of wRC+ (113) and WOBA (.330).
The Blue Jays win, 5-4.
