Despite Loss Tuesday, Jays Have Had Rangers’ Number

Cliché alert! There is no love lost between the Toronto Blue Jays and Texas Rangers. However, for all the physicality and heated verbal exchanges, the Jays have been the better squad with wins in six of the past eight against the Rangers. After splitting the first two games of their current four-game series, the Jays and Rangers will meet in Arlington again Wednesday.

Shark Bites
  • Kendrys Morales is 10-for-26 with 8 RBIs during his current 6-game hitting streak.
  • The Rangers are 12-3 SU in their last 15 games at home against teams with losing records.
  • The total has gone OVER in 5 of the Blue Jays' last 7 games.

Joe Biagini, who gets the start in this one for the Blue Jays, is coming off an absolutely terrible outing. The righty allowed eight hits and seven runs on just 33 pitches in one inning of work against the Chicago White Sox, who have a subpar offense at best. Aside from his last start, Biagini has been pitching well but getting little run support with the Jays scoring just 2.63 runs in his outings.

Tyson Ross will be making his second start in a Rangers jersey after missing almost all of last season and the first two and a half months of this campaign. Ross looked good in his first outing last Friday, as the righty went 5.2 innings and allowed just two runs. Ross will continue to have his pitch count and velocity monitored, which may be a concern for a bullpen that ranks 23rd in the MLB in ERA.
