TOR -150 Total 8
The Atlanta Braves are currently sitting right at the top of the National League East, trailing only the New York Mets. The Braves scuffled against the Miami Marlins last week and it seems that same struggle has followed them to Toronto, as they have split the first two games with the Blue Jays. Toronto got the better of things this past Saturday with a 6-5 overtime victory. Alex Wood went 6.2 innings and AJ Pierzynski launched another homer, but it wasn't enough.
The Blue Jays are sitting at .500 now with a 6-6 record. Toronto has gone 2-2 in their last 4 games and Toronto's fans hope that this is a sign of things heating up. The Blue Jays have a lot of power and they sit in an AL East that is open for the taking, provided that Toronto doesn't fall too far back of Boston. Last game w saw Josh Donaldson launch a 10th inning home run (for his third hit of the game) in order to lead the team to victory.
Atlanta is led by the play of Freddie Freeman. Freeman has 3 homers already to go along with 8 RBI. The Braves bullpen has mostly been solid but they'll likely scuffle against Toronto's strong line up. The Blue Jays have some of the best hitters in the league in Donaldson, Bautista, and Encarnacion.
