BoSox are Handing it to Jays This Season

Hanley Ramirez handed the Blue Jays a devastating loss in the bottom of the 15th inning last night with a walk-off home run, sealing the Bluebirds’ fate as a deadline seller. Now nine games back of the BoSox for the division lead, the Jays seem a defeated group that will be tough to bet on going forward.

SHARK BITES
  • The Blue Jays are 1-5 SU and 0-6 on the runline in their last 6 games against the Red Sox.
  • The Red Sox are 8-2 SU in their last 10 games at home with Drew Pomeranz as the starting pitcher.
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Red Sox' last 5 games.

So, are they worth a shot as the road underdog tonight? Probably not. Toronto is hitting a pitiful .242 against lefties this season and the Jays were shut down by Drew Pomeranz (9-4, 3.75 ERA) when they last faced him.

Although they’re sending out their most talented starter, Aaron Sanchez (1-2, 3.94 ERA), it’s tough to see the Jays getting him the run support he needs to earn a win. The 25-year-old is also getting knocked around this year with a WHIP of 1.59 and the BoSox might be the best pure hitting team in baseball.

If Pom has another good start and Boston takes a lead past the sixth, it’s basically over. The Red Sox have one of the best pens in baseball and with both relief corps getting stretched last night, Boston’s superior pen will give them a huge advantage on hump day.
