The Toronto Blue Jays will play against the Atlanta Braves at Truist Park in Cumberland, Georgia on Thursday, August 6, 2020, 7:10 P.M, ET.  This will be the rubber match between both teams who are tied with 1 win each. The Braves took game 1 with a dominant 10-1 score, but failed to continue the momentum as they were held to just a single run in the next game. The Blue Jays took game 2 winning at 2-1 to avoid the sweep in the series. Toronto is 9th in the National League with a record of 4-5, and is 3rd in the AL East Division.

The Blue Jays are struggling in this early part of the season, and have lost 5 of their 1st 9 games. They are 1 win shy of getting to the .500 win mark, which can be done if they take down the Braves in their next game. Also a fact for the season, all of Toronto’s wins are on the road which will say something about this next matchup. Hyun Jin Ryu who struggled early this season finally exploded in the pitching post, striking out 8 batters in 5 innings without allowing a single earned run. They should improve on their offense if they wish to climb the rankings as they are 27th with 3.25 runs per game. Nate Pearson will be on the mound for the Blue Jays in the next contest. Pearson opened many eyes as he was on fire against the Washington Nationals in the opening day, as he did not allow any runs, with 5 strikeouts in 5 innings.

Toronto Blue Jays vs Atlanta Braves Predictions 8/6/2020

The Atlanta Braves have high expectations heading into the season after their successful run in the NL East last year. They showed good offense so far, but far from great since they lack consistency in that department. It is evident after they destroyed the Blue Jays in game 1 with 10 runs, but somehow forgot how to do runs in game 2 with just 1 made. Dansby Swanson and Marcell Ozuna are the only 2 players who are consistent for the squad, but 2 men can’t carry a team. The Braves are 5th in the National League with an 8-5 record, and are 2nd in the NL East Division. Touki Toussaint will start for the Braves in game 3 of the series. Toussaint has 6 strikeouts which is good, but allowed 8 hits and 4 walks, and 6 earned runs in 6.2 innings this season. He has an 8.10 earned run average so far.

Toronto Blue Jays vs Atlanta Braves. MLB’s pick for this game will go to the Toronto Blue Jays -1.5. The Blue Jays are understandably the underdogs in this one having struggled in offense this season. Pitching wise Nate Pearson will impress viewers once again after his power game against the Nationals. Toussaint can make strikeouts, but at the same time can allow many runs. Toronto only won a single game in their last 5 meetings, but it’s that inconsistency of the braves that will hit them hard going into game 3. Tronto will win this round to a predicted score of 6-3.
