Jays Are Winning Games When Stroman Starts

After a seventh failed attempt to bring their record to level pegging, the Blue Jays will call upon Marcus Stroman (7-2, 3.09) to help get them back within one game of .500. Saturday’s matinee matchup with the White Sox may offer the Jays’ ace an opportunity to win a seventh straight decision but he’ll have to overcome his team’s – and his own – short-comings against the Pale Hose in order to do so.

SHARK BITES
  • The White Sox are 6-1 SU and 7-0 on the runline in their last 7 games against Blue Jays.
  • Stroman is 0-2 with a 7.50 ERA in 4 career starts against the White Sox.
  • The Blue Jays are 1-2 SU and on the runline in their last 3 home games as favorites of -200 or more.

Now winners of five straight games at the Rogers Centre, the White Sox will send out Mike Pelfrey (2-5. 3.81 ERA) this afternoon in an attempt to get their series with the Blue Birds wrapped up. The MLB veteran has made five road starts in his 12th big-league season and earned a 1-3 record to go along with a 4.50 ERA. He hasn’t been pitching all that badly this year but his inability to go deep in contests really limits what the Chi Sox can achieve when he takes the bump.

His career numbers against the White Sox are not good but Stroman is in the midst of a dominant stretch that’s seen him post quality starts in five of his last six outings. His team has won seven consecutive games when the Duke grad has mounted the starting hill and they’ll be massive favorites to extend that streak Saturday.
