The Blue Jays 3.17 team ERA in June was second best in the AL. and they drove in the most runs in June of any AL team (151).

There was a definite offensive blip during the Red Sox Series (save for Canada Day) and if it wasn’t hitting enough it was not getting the hit and leaving a ton of men on base.

Over the course of  season it will even out but for now we are finally getting the pitching. Hopefully the offense comes around and takes advantage of it. Comerica isn’t a home run hitters paradise so it will be more about manufacturing runs and hitting it where they ain’t. I say they take advantage of a struggling Tigers  pitching staff (especially Verlander) and take 2 of 3 in the series.
