Lagares collects four hits as Mets blast Jays

Lagares collects four hits as Mets blast Jays

J.A. Happ gave the Blue Jays what they needed - and then some - in a 12-1 win over the New York Mets on Wednesday afternoon, splitting their two-game series. The first pitch is scheduled for 1:10 p.m. ET.

Both teams were off Monday after losing Sunday. The home run was Nimmo's second of the year and his first since April 15. May. While the Blue Jays haven't announced any bullpen plans with Osuna unavailable, Tyler Clippard has picked up the lone save opportunity in his absence. Will the first game between these two teams stay under the total for bettors?

Lagares went 4-for-5 with three RBI's, and Rosario went 3-for-4 with two RBI's. NY opened 11-1 but is just 8-17 since, a stretch in which it has not won back-to-back games. Toronto has an over/under record of 17-19-5.

Instead, Blue Jays left-hander J.A. Happ had a blast doing all three. The left-handed Happ is 4-3 with a 4.80 ERA and 56 strikeouts.

Zack Godley (4-2, 4.08 ERA, 43 Ks, 1.42 WHIP) carries a three-game winless streak into his ninth start of the year in the series opener. The Blue Jays are 6-2 in his past eight interleague starts. DeGrom has faced Arizona once in his career and that came in 2015 when he allowed two runs over seven innings while striking out 10 to pick up the win.

Wheeler is 0-3 with a 9.57 ERA in three starts at Citi Field this season and 8-18 with a 5.31 ERA in 33 career starts at home.

Wheeler's struggles began in the fourth inning, when he gave up a two-run home run to Teoscar Hernandez. The under is 5-0 in the last five meetings between these two teams in NY and is 4-0 in the last four meetings between these two teams overall. They are second to last in the NL in runs scored to the Miami Marlins are last in the NL in hits. Last season the Jays never made it to the.500 level.

Despite surrendering a solo homer to Justin Smoak in the first, Wheeler (2-3) struck out six and allowed one hit through three innings. The bullpen has a solid ERA of just 3.06, along with a K/9 of 9.24. The visiting Mets fell to the Philadelphia Phillies, 4-2, while the host Blue Jays were beaten by the Boston Red Sox, 5-3. Kevin Pillar and Yangervis Solarte have carried the load for the offense. Happ is the first Jays pitcher ever to reach base three times in a game, and the first to score twice in a game since Roy Halladay did so in June 2003.

The Blue Jays have gained 1.3 units and are 11-13 ATS when facing a right-handed starting pitcher this season. Everything in a 12-1 laugher over the Mets.

The Blue Jays have lost four of their last five games SU. As a baseball fan for almost 40 years, I am having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that a team could go this long without winning consecutive games. even by mistake.
