MLB Odds: Sanchez Back on Mound to Face Marlins. After wrapping up a series in Baltimore on Thursday, the Toronto Blue Jays fly south to take on the Miami Marlins for a three-game set starting this Friday.
The Jays have tasted a rare bit of success of late, winning five of their last seven games, while also watching DH Kendrys Morales swat home runs in seven straight games. While Morales came up one game short of the MLB record for consecutive games with a dinger, the Jays will look to look to continue their recent positive play in Florida.
After coming up one game short of tying the MLB record for consecutive games with a home run, Toronto Blue Jays’ DH Kendrys Morales will be eager to start a new streak against the Miami Marlins. He and the rest of the Jays will be up against Miami starter Dan Straily. Bet Mlb Games Now
Another bit of good news for the Jays is that Aaron Sanchez will take the mound on Friday, marking his second start since returning from the 60-day DL. In his first outing, the 26-year-old lasted only four innings while surrendering six runs. He’ll have plenty of opportunity to improve upon those numbers against the 29th-ranked offence of the Marlins.
Like Toronto, 2018 has been a season to forget for the Marlins. They sit last in the NL East and own the third-worst run differential in the Bigs at -174 at Bovada SportsBook. Miami will turn to starter Dan Straily as the Marlins try to scratch out a couple more wins before the end of the season. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 PM ET.
