After falling to 0-5 against the Boston Red Sox this year, the Toronto Blue Jays are turning to one of their most reliable arms this year to try and turn things around against their AL East rival. The Jays offense fell short in yesterday's 5-0 loss, registering only three hits, continuing a trend in which the group is either very strong on any given night or completely non-existent.
Probable starting pitchers
- For the Blue Jays, left-hander Yusei Kikuchi is gearing up to make his 17th start of the year. Through 84 innings of work, the 32-year-old has been fairly up and down until his recent stretch of five starts in which he has struck out six or more batters four times and gone five-plus innings four times as well. On the season, he is 7-2 with a 3.75 ERA and 109 ERA+.
- The Red Sox are sending 27-year-old Kutter Crawford to the mound for his 16th appearance and eighth start of the year. The right-hander has done well in any role the Sox have asked him to pitch in this year, posting a 2-4 record with a 4.01 ERA, 3.99 FIP and 115 ERA+ across 51.2 innings on the mound.
