Toronto Blue Jays: Stalking New York in the MLB AL East

Following a well-deserved day off, Toronto returns to action as they open a three-game series against Oakland tonight. Few teams are hotter than the Blue Jays who are 16-4 since the All-Star break and have won eight straight games. New York fans have to be a little uneasy as Toronto is closing ground like a lion stalking its prey. The Jays were six games out of first in the AL East at the start of August  – 10 days later they are just 1.5 games back. TO has built a powerhouse squad.

Oakland Athletics: Lots of former Blue Jays make their return to the Rogers Centre

Former Blue Jays flock to their old nest as players like Danny Valencia and Brett Lawrie return to Toronto. One can only imagine how they feel as they play out the string on a losing season while the Jays appear to be MLB playoff bound. The Athletics have slumped all season and that trend continues as Oakland has recorded an 11-11 record since the All-Star break. The Athletics are a three game winning streak as they swept the AL West leading Astros on the weekend.

Blue Jays vs Athletics MLB Prediction: The pitchers duel isn’t much to write home about here as RHP Drew Hutchinson (10-2 ERA 5.42) faces RHP Kendall Graveman (6-7 ERA 3.90) in the battle on the bump. Hutchinson has a suspect Win/Loss record as they Jays offense has covered more than a few of his miserable outings this season. Graveman has given up 13 earned runs, over 19 innings pitched, during his last four starts. Oakland has the worst defense in the Majors and their 4.33 bullpen ERA is the third worst mark. Back Toronto with a 500 unit wager on the money line posted at SportsInteraction. Get into the game at SportsInteraction by clicking the odds image below
