Jays starter Drew Hutchison was razor sharp in his latest with a complete game shutout over the Rangers. Hutchison allowed 1 run over 7 innings in his only start versus the Red Sox, but note that was in 2012. Bosox starter Clay Buchholz has been hot cold this but does have 3 quality starts in his last 4 outings. He has owned Toronto with 5 straight quality starts including one this season in Toronto where he went 7 innings allowing 3 runs. The Jays live by the long ball so if Buchholz can keep it in the park he should add to his success against them. Boston is struggling to put runs on the board with 10 in their last 5 games which adds more value to the under tonight.
Take Under 9 -105.
