Tampa BR @ Toronto BJ – MLB
June 2, 2010 ás 18:32
Pick: Under 8 @ 1.78 in Unibet / Result: (7-3)
The series between the Rays and the Blue Jays are now tied after the first two games. Tonight it’s the last game and the Blue Jays and keep the battle for the top position on the AL East very interesting. They lost the game last night after a collapse from their closer, since they entered on the 9th leading 5-3 and still lost the game 6-7. Tonight both managers go with young but amazing pitchers.
Shaun Marcum will be pitching for the Blue Jays, he has a 2.59 ERA, 5 wins and 1 defeat, just 5 home runs and 21 runs suffered in 73 working innings. Not bad. At home he has six games and his ERA goes down to 2.23. Against the Rays his numbers are even better, with 0.75 ERA in four games in his career. Tonight he’ll have to perform against former 2007 draft number 1, David Price, who’s been outstanding so far this season. He has 7 wins and 2 defeats, 2.57 ERA and his best game this season came exactly against the Blue Jays in a game where he didn’t allowed a single run and threw the complete game on the 6-0 win for the Rays.
A very nervous game is expected between two of the better teams for the season, in a division where every game is important in order to get to the playoffs. Both bullpens are competetent, besides last night disaster with the Blue Jays closer.
