Blue Jays @ Tigers – MLB Pitching Preview
After being swept by the Braves in Atlanta, the Blue Jays rolled into St. Louis and swept the Cardinals to even their record at 39-39 on the season. Toronto has been streaky all year and they sit seven games back of the New York Yankees in the American League East.
Detroit (42-36) has taken over sole possession of the American League Central as they have a slim, one game lead over the Cleveland Indians. The Tigers took two of three games from the Diamondbacks on the weekend.
RHP Max Scherzer (9-3 4.61 ERA) is looking to join teammate Justin Verlander, as a ten game winner, when he heads to the bump for the Tigers tonight.
Despite the lofty win total, Scherzer as been all over the map this season. He has allowed five or more runs on six occasions while tossing a shutout, for at least seven innings, in three contests.
Toronto gives the ball to young RHP Zach Stewart (0-1 5.91 ERA) as he makes just his third major league start for the Blue Jays.
Stewart had a rough go his last time out as he was shelled for five runs, on 10 hits, in just 3.2 innings of work, against the Atlanta Braves on 06/21/11.

This is a “Write in Game” at Bodog as Toronto makes a brief, one game stop in Detroit. This re-scheduled game was originally rained out back on May 17, 2011.
Detroit is back in first in the AL Central, they are getting close to 100% healthy, and they have scored 27 runs in their last four games.
Since May 3, 2011, after a seven game losing streak (04/24 through 05/02), the Tigers have gone 30-19, good for .612 winning percentage.
MLB home run co-leader Jose Bautista (23 with Mark Teixeira NYY) could move from the outfield to the hot corner at third base as early as tonight for Toronto.
After flying through Cincinnati, Atlanta, and St. Louis, the Blue Jays wings must be a little tired. This one-day stop in Detroit, with rookie pitcher Stewart on the mound, will not be a pleasant one.
Take the Tigers over the Jays at -1.5 runs (+115) with the Bodog Point Spread!
