The MLB is back in action on Tuesday as the Toronto Blue Jays will pay a visit to Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas to clash with the Houston Astros in the final game of their three-game series. Marco Estrada will be the starter for the Blue Jays and he will be opposed by Dallas Keuchel.
Toronto Blue Jays Form
The Toronto Blue Jays have fixed their form and they have some solid results in the last few games. The Jays were able to win the first game of this series with a score of 6-3. They were dominant in that game and the win was well deserved. The Blue Jays also beat the Angels before heading into this series with a score of 7-6. They head into this game against the Astros with a high level of confidence after these recent wins. The Blue Jays have averaged 4.34 runs per game and have allowed 5.03 runs per game on the road so far. Marco Estrada record against the Astros stands at 2-0 with a 2.96 ERA in 12 games (six starts), including 1-0 with a 3.90 ERA in seven games (four starts) here at Minute Maid Park.
On the offensive side of the game, Toronto has been solid as they are placed on the 10th spot in the league in scoring, putting up an average of 4.51 runs per game, while also being 24th in hitting at .237 and 6th spot in homers with a total of 106. On the mound, they have been poor so far as they are placed on the 23rd place in the league in ERA at 4.52, while also holding the 23rd place in WHIP at 1.38 and 17th spot in K’s with 657.
Houston Astros Form
The Houston Astros are one of the better teams this year and they have one of the best records in the league. However, it seems that lately, their home form is not up to the task this year. Yes, the Astros will enter their game on Tuesday having gone 23-17 here at home for the year, but that is far from the 29-11 that they have gone on the road so far. They have lost the first game of this series with a score of 6-3 and they will definitely need to improve if they want to get back to winning ways. The Astros have allowed just 3.20 runs per game at home so far. Dallas Keuchel record against the Blue Jays stands at 3-0 with a 3.62 ERA in four starts.
On the offensive side of the game, Houston is one of the best team in the league as they are placed on the 2nd spot in the league in scoring, putting up 5.15 runs per game, while also holding the 1st spot in hitting at .264 and 8th place in homers with a total 100 so far. On the mound, they are the best team in the MLB as they are ranked 1st in ERA at 2.85, while also being 1st in WHIP at 1.05 and 1st in K’s with 838.
The Blue Jays started this series in a strong way and it seems that they are in a good shape these days. On the other side, the Astros had a rather average performance in the first game. However, they are one of the best teams in the league and are well known for bouncing back after disappointments. And although the Blue Jays have been very good lately, I believe that the Astros will be motivated to bounce back after the defeat in the first game. The Astros have the better team and I expect a solid win from them today. Go for the Astros
