1* Toronto (3:10 ET): I gave out the Blue Jays last night as a premium release (they won 14-9) and offer up a small recommendation here on Getaway Day. While Toronto's offense was "a little slow" to come around (compared to LY's historic production), Tuesday marked the 7th time since June 11th that they scored 10 or more runs in game.
Though the Jays might not be leading the league in runs scored as they did in 2015, they still rank 7th, which isn't bad at all. Obviously, Coors Field is a place where you'd expect the numbers to go up. Yesterday marked in season high in both runs and hits. There was a lengthy rain delay (almost three hours!), but it certainly didn't affect the Toronto offense, which scored in each of the final seven innings. As a reminder, visiting teams are averaging nearly 7.0 rpg here at Coors this season.
I was right to believe that yday's starter for Colorado (Eddie Butler) had little chance of slowing down the Jays and I feel the same way about Tyler Anderson, who gets the baseball today. Anderson is still winless after three starts and this will be - by far - the best lineup he's faced to date. Toronto counters w/ Aaron Sanchez, who will be looking to make it three consecutive quality starts. He's also allowed 3 ER or less in six of his last seven outings. Had Toronto not blown a four-run lead Monday, they'd be in position for a sweep. They'll have to settle for "just" winning the series now. 1* Toronto
