Bo Bichette (run, RBI), Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (run, two RBI), and Daulton Varsho each had two hits for Toronto on Thursday, but it wasn’t enough to secure a victory.

Toronto Blue Jays vs Pittsburgh Pirates. The MLB pick for this game is the Toronto Blue Jays. Each club enters Friday’s opening off a sweep at the hands of the opponent, thus both teams battled this week.


Pittsburgh had a good start to the year, but it’s important to consider how their pitching will do as the year progresses.


Dependence on players like Rich Hill and Velasquez is challenging enough; it may become more challenging if one of those players is placed on the sidelines, requiring you to dig even deeper into your pitching depth.


Although Toronto suffered mostly due to subpar pitching, they have the power in the lineup to cause significant damage at any position in the lineup.


Take Toronto to win this game and, at least briefly, get back on track. The Toronto Blue Jays will win to a predicted score of 7-2.
