Red Sox are 9-3 This Season Against Blue Jays

The Boston Red Sox and the Toronto Blue Jays battle at Rogers Centre on Wednesday night. The Red Sox are looking for the sweep. Toronto is trying to hang on in the AL Wildcard race. They will be glad to see the Red Sox leave town.

Oddsmakers opened the Blue Jays as -115-moneyline favorites versus the Red Sox, while the game’s total opened at 9. The Red Sox are now -130-moneyline favorites and the total has dropped to 9.5.

Rick Porcello will be the starting pitcher for the Red Sox on this day. Right hander Porcello is 8-15 this season with a 4.57 ERA. Porcello is 4-1 with a 4.66 ERA in his past five starts. The right handed hurler will be facing the Blue Jays for the second time this season. He allowed six hits and three unearned runs in seven innings on April 19 at the Rogers Centre. He took the loss.  Porcello is 7-8 with a 4.70 ERA over 18 career outings (17 starts) against the Blue Jays.

The Red Sox will be trying for their sixth straight win at the Rogers Centre. They won their fifth in a row there Tuesday night. It was a 3-0 victory behind a dominant, 11-strikeout pitching performance by Chris Sale. He reached the 1,500-strikeout plateau after 1,290 innings. It is the fewest required to reach that number in major league history.

Blue Jays Hope Happ Can Stop Bleeding

J.A. Happ will take the hill for Toronto. The Blue Jays left hander has a 4.10 ERA to go along with a 6-10 record this season. Over his past five starts, he is 3-2 with a 3.94 ERA. Happ won the first three of those starts. He allowed only one run in each outing. In the next two losses he allowed five runs each time. He has pitched once this season against the Red Sox. It was a no-decision July 18 in the Blue Jays’ 5-4, 15-inning loss at Fenway Park. He allowed five hits, two walks and two earned runs while striking out two over five innings.

Happ is 5-3 with an ERA of 3.66 in 14 career games (13 starts) against Boston.
