Toronto Blue Jays (41-48 SU, 43-46 RL, 4-6-0 O/U) vs Atlanta Braves (45-39 SU, 46-42 RL, 6-4-0 O/U)

MLB: Wednesday, July 11, SunTrust Park, Cumberland, GA, 7:35 PM ET.

The Toronto Blue Jays will be trying to bounce back from their series loss to the New York Yankees when they face the Atlanta Braves in the second game of their two-game interleague series on Wednesday night.

Sam Gaviglio, who is 2-2 with a 3.81 ERA, will get the start for the Blue Jays. The Braves have not announced who their starter for the game is.

Blue Jays Trying To Snap Two-Game Losing Streak

The Blue Jays had a good run going at the end of June, but they seem to have hit another roadblock this month and are mired in another slump. Coming into this series, they had lost two of their last three games and five of their last seven contests, dropping them down to fourth place in the division.

Despite their recent play, they are still within reach of one of the two Wildcard spots in the American League, but they need to break out of the slump to keep their slim postseason hopes alive.

Offensively, the Blue Jays have not been very good this season. They have a .236 batting average, which is 25th in the league. Their .309 on base percentage is 24th, while their .418 slugging percentage is 11th in the league. The Blue Jays have scored 391 runs this season, which is 19th in the league.

Toronto’s pitching hasn’t been much better than their offense. Opponents have a .258 batting average against the Blue Jays, which is 25th in the league. Their 4.53 ERA is 23rd, while their 1.38 WHIP is 25th in the league.

In his last start, Gaviglio gave up four hits and two runs in four innings, which was enough to help the Blue Jays get a 6-2 win over the New York Yankees. They will need another solid performance from him to get the win on Wednesday.

Braves Looking For Second Win in Seven Games

The Braves haven’t played well over the past week, and have lost five of their last six games. The slump has allowed the Philadelphia Phillies to tie them at the top of the NL East standings, which means the Braves can’t afford to lose this series against the Blue Jays.

Offensively, the Braves are one of the best in the league this year. They have a .259 batting average, which is fifth in the league. Their .328 on base percentage is sixth, while their .423 slugging percentage is ninth in the league. The Braves have scored 439 runs this season, which is sixth in the league.

Atlanta’s pitching has also been very solid this season. Opponents have a .231 batting average against the Braves, which is sixth in the league. Their 3.87 ERA is 12th, while their 1.29 WHIP is 14th in the league.

The Braves pitching staff has struggled over the past week, but they will need to pick things up and give a solid performance on Wednesday to help the team get the win and hold on to their division lead.

Trends

Toronto is:

  • 5-1 in their last 6 interleague games vs. a team with a winning record.
  • 6-2 in their last 8 vs. National League East.
  • 4-0 in Gaviglio’s last 4 starts.

Atlanta is:

  • 1-5 in their last 6 overall.
  • 2-8 in their last 10 interleague games vs. a right-handed starter.
  • 7-23 in their last 30 interleague home games.

The Blue Jays have played well in interleague games this season, and have been perfect in Gaviglio’s last four starts. The Braves have struggled in interleague play, especially at home.
