3* Main Event on Toronto Blue Jays +
Toronto vs. Minnesota,
09/07/2013 19:10 EDT,
Score: 11 - 2
Money Line: +104 Toronto
The Toronto Blue Jays are the hot team coming into this matchup against the Twins. They have won eight of their last 11 games, including their series opener against Minnesota last night. The Twins offense has been horrible this season. They have a .242 team batting average on the year, and against left-handed starters they have scored just 3.9 runs per game.
The Blue Jays will have an underrated J.A. Happ on the mound today. Happ is a lot better than the story his record tells. He has been in some pitching duels against the leagues best, so his win column may look a little empty. Happ only has 13 starts this season and has to be looking forward to facing this Minnesota team today. The opposition will feature Kevin Correia, who has a losing record at 9-10 in 27 starts.
The Blue Jays are 4-1 in their last five road games and 4-1 in their last five games against a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30. The Twins are 0-5 in their last 5 home games against a left-handed starter. They are also 1-4 in Correia's last five home starts.
