The Jays continued to sizzle winning the series opener with a 9th inning 5-run surge to win 5-3. Toronto has been on an unbelievable roll grabbing their 15th win in last 18 games and is not a team I feel comfortable going against. Tonight they send out knuckleballer R.A. Dickey who looked anything but a big league pitcher in his latest getting stung for 10 hits and 5 runs in 5 innings. He has been sharp this season registering 7 straight quality starts before getting his bell rung by the Royals last week. Dickey has struggled historically versus most of the batters on the Tigers’ current roster, but many of the ABs were from pre 2012. Detroit will give the ball to Rick Porcello who has struggled in his last 2 starts. The Tigers won 7 of Porcello’s first 8 starts including a stretch of 6 straight where he had a run of 4 consecutive quality starts. The wheels fell off in a home game against the Rangers where he was blasted for 8 runs on 12 hits. He followed that game with a very erratic 5 innings in Oakland where he walked 6 batters, but somehow held the Athletics to only 2 runs. Porcello hasn’t faced Toronto frequently in recent years with only one start in each of the last two seasons. He didn’t fare well with 9 earned runs allowed in 11 innings. Take Toronto Blue Jays +117.
