Boston Red Sox vs Toronto Blue Jays 08/08/2021
Boston Red Sox
The Boston Red Sox finally had a victory in the Rogers Center but it did not come easily. It was a low scoring victory, 2-1, and they are coming off of a shutout game just two days ago. The Red Sox are fast slipping from the top four of the American League after losing eight of their last ten matches. Their current record is now at 65-48 and they got overtaken by the Chicago White Sox. Alex Verdugo and Jonathan Arauz summed up the RBIs scored by the Red Sox in the last game but the team’s pitchers get a good credit for the win. Tanner Houck had six strikeouts in just less than four innings.
Players to watch: J.D. Martinez LF (GP 104, AB 402, R 69, H 114, 2B 28, 3B 3, HR 21, RBI 68, TB 211, BB 42, SO 103, SB 0, AVG 0.284, OBP 0.35, SLG 0.525, OPS 0.875, WAR 2.7), Rafael Devers 3B (GP 106, AB 396, R 69, H 112, 2B 28, 3B 1, HR 27, RBI 82, TB 223, BB 43, SO 103, SB 3, AVG 0.283, OBP 0.357, SLG 0.563, OPS 0.92, WAR 3.7).
Toronto Blue Jays
The Toronto Blue Jays are on the rise as they won their last eight games. Their current record is now at 59-50 and trails the New York Yankees by just 1.5 games. They just got a bad stumble in their last game after scoring only one RBI against the Boston Red Sox with Breyvic Valera as their only scorer. Jose Berrios was the main pitcher for this game and he had six strikeouts in five innings. He also gave away one home run and that cost them the game and ended their five-game winning streak. The last two games between both teams were low scoring and it was far-fetched as compared to their first match which they combined for 16 RBIs.
Players to watch: Marcus Semien SS (GP 108, AB 434, R 82, H 120, 2B 29, 3B 2, HR 26, RBI 67, TB 231, BB 42, SO 108, SB 11, AVG 0.276, OBP 0.34, SLG 0.532, OPS 0.873, WAR 5.4), Bo Bichette SS (GP 108, AB 433, R 85, H 127, 2B 19, 3B 1, HR 20, RBI 77, TB 208, BB 30, SO 96, SB 17, AVG 0.293, OBP 0.343, SLG 0.48, OPS 0.824, WAR 3.6).
