As they defeated the Rays in the first game of this series on Friday night, Toronto triumphed for the fourth time in five matches.


The Blue Jays had an 8-6 record as of Saturday and were tied for second place in the AL East, five matches behind the Rays for first place.


Bo Bichette led a 10-hit attack on Friday night with five hits (two runs, two RBIs), while Kevin Kiermaier added two runs and two more hits.


With his third solo home run of the year to start the game, George Springer gave Toronto the advantage.


In five innings of work, Jose Berrios (1-2) won the victory by giving up just one run on four hits, no walks, and six strikeouts. 


In this game, Toronto’s Alek Manoah is making his fourth start of the year on the mound. He pitched 14.2 innings this season and is 1-0 with a 4.91 ERA, a 1.705 WHIP, 11 walks, and 11 strikeouts.


Manoah’s most recent start, against the Tigers at home on Tuesday night, didn’t affect the decision. He pitched 4.1 innings in a Toronto 9-3 victory, surrendering three runs on four hits, 5 walks, and three strikeouts.


In this game, Manoah starts against the Rays for the eighth time in his career. 


  • The Toronto Blue Jays are 5-1 SU in their last 6 matches.

Tampa Bay Rays vs Toronto Blue Jays. The MLB pick for this game is the Tampa Bay Rays. Even though this series finale features a showdown of aces, only one of these two performed up to expectations in the season’s early games.


Given that Jeffrey Springs will be sidelined for a few months due to an arm injury, McClanahan must step up and maintain his great start to the year.


As of Saturday’s games, the Rays hit 34 home runs in just 14 games, displaying plenty of power in their lineup. In his first three starts, Manoah struggled with control, giving as many walks as strikeouts so far this season.


Take the Rays in this game because they win on the day off. Tampa Bay will win to a predicted score of 7-4.
