They outscored the first-place Yankees 17-7 and will be looking to continue their momentum when they head to Toronto in this week's matchup.

Boston Red Sox

Boston Red Sox (37-35)Β are starting to look like a team that could make a push for a wild card spot come playoff time. They took it to the New York Yankees during their home series taking two of three from the series and outscoring the Yankees 17-7 in the final two games.

They will be looking to keep that offensive surge going when they head to Toronto to take on the Blue Jays who are also getting hot at the right time.

  • For the first game of this road series against the Toronto Blue Jays, the Boston Red Sox will send Nick Pivetta (3-4, 3.88 ERA) to the mound to keep the good times rolling.
  • Pivetta is coming off a matchup where he was roughed up by the Philadelphia Phillies allowing 4 runs on 6 hits and 4 walks while striking out 4 in 4 innings.
  • That rough outing came after back-to-back dominant performances where he allowed just 2 runs on 4 hits while striking out 18 in 12.1 innings.

Pivetta comes into this matchup against a struggling Blue Jays squad at the plate and he will try to take full advantage on Monday night.

The Boston Red Sox have done a great job at getting after the Yankees starting pitching in their two-game winning streak where they roughed up Marcus Stroman and Carlos Rodon for 9 runs in 10 innings.

If Pivetta can return to the form he just two games ago while the Red Sox continue to swing a hot bat, they can extend their winning streak to three and take game 1 on the road in this series in Toronto.

Toronto Blue Jays

Toronto Blue Jays (35-36)Β are now 6-4 in their last 10 games while taking two of three from the visiting Cleveland Guardians while looking like they are playing their best baseball as of late.

  • During their two-game winning streak, they outscored the Guardians 12-6 looking like the Blue Jays' are finally starting to get hot at the right time.
  • With this resurgence from the Blue Jays, they send Yusei Kikuchi (4-5, 3.26 ERA) to the mound in hopes of continuing this hot streak when they play host to their divisional rivals the Boston Red Sox.

Kikuchi is coming off back-to-back dominant performances against the Milwaukee Brewers and the Baltimore Orioles where he allowed just 1 run on 7 hits with 11 strikeouts in 11 innings getting the win in both games.

Kikuchi will look to bring that recent success in his game against the Red Sox who he's had success against in a small sample size. However, it's the Blue Jays bats who are going to do most of the work in this matchup against Nick Pivetta and the Red Sox. They have some great numbers over the years against Pivetta:

  • Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (3 HRs, 7 RBIs, 6 BBs)
  • Bo Bichette (.323, 2 HRs, 7 RBIs)
  • Daulton Varsho (.500, 2 HRs, 3 RBIs)
  • Justin Turner (.500, 1 HR)
  • George Springer (.370, 1 HR)

If Kikuchi can keep his form and limit the hot bats of the Red Sox through 5-6 innings, the Blue Jays bats can get after Pivetta and give him much-needed run support to extend the Blue Jays winning streak to three in a row.

FINAL RED SOX-BLUE JAYS PICK & PREDICTION

Both the Red Sox and Blue Jays are surging coming into this matchup riding two-game winning streaks and they will be looking to extend their winning streaks on Monday night in game one of this series.

With that said, it looks like the Blue Jays are finally showing some life at the plate in recent games which is going to come in handy in this matchup against Nick Pivetta who they have a good track record against.

As long as Kikuchi can keep the Red Sox bats in check the Blue Jays should produce enough runs to extend their winning streak to three in their home stadium.
