The Toronto Blue Jays and Oakland Athletics meet Tuesday in MLB action at Oakland Coliseum. The Toronto Blue Jays look to snap a 4-game losing streak. The Oakland Athletics need a win after losing 6 of their last 8 games.

The Toronto Blue Jays have scored 9 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 6 of their last 9 games. The Blue Jays have won 6 of their last 9 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Bo Bichette leads the Blue Jays with 86 hits and 43 RBI, while Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Lourdes Gurriel Jr. have combined for 156 hits and 87 RBI. Yusei Kikuchi gets the ball, and he is 3-4 with a 4.74 ERA and 74 strikeouts this season. Kikuchi is 1-2 with a 3.19 ERA and 46 strikeouts in his career against the Athletics.

The Oakland Athletics have scored 7 runs in their last 3 games and 3 or fewer runs in 5 of their last 7 games. The Athletics have lost 10 of their last 11 games when scoring 3 or fewer runs. Sean Murphy leads the Athletics with 60 hits and 33 RBI, while Elvis Andrus and Tony Kemp have combined for 112 hits and 33 RBI. Adrian Martinez gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 6.30 ERA and 6 strikeouts this season. This will be Martinez’s first career game against the Blue Jays.

The Blue Jays are 5-2 in their last 7 Tuesday games and 2-5 in their last 7 road games. The Athletics are 17-42 in their last 59 home games and 17-46 in their last 63 overall. The over is 28-8 in Blue Jays last 36 overall. The under is 4-0 in Athletics last 4 overall. The Blue Jays are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Oakland and 7-2 in the last 9 meetings.

I’m not running to the window to back the Blue Jays in their current form or Yusei Kikuchi with the month he’s coming off. However, I refuse to believe the Blue Jays are going to lose back to back games to the Oakland Athletics, probably the worst team in baseball. Adrian Martinez has also allowed 11 hits and 7 runs in 10 innings this season. If the Blue Jays lose this game, something is wrong. Give me the road team.
