Astros vs Blue Jays Predictions

Astros vs Blue Jays Predictions

On Tuesday night, the Toronto Blue Jays and Houston Astros will do battle, following a Monday matchup where Houston crushed Toronto. Houston scored 11 runs against the Jays on Monday night, a feat that will be hard to replicate against the starter for Toronto in this contest. But if there is one lineup in baseball that could get to Kevin Gausman, the lineup of the Astros would certainly be a suitable candidate.

Houston Astros Predictions

The Houston Astros enter Tuesday night’s action in second place in the AL West, despite having the fourth-best record in the American League. They are 36-24, which is 3.5 games behind the AL West leading Texas Rangers going into this contest. But the Astros have enough experience winning big games to know that they just need to stay the course in order to catch up to a team like Texas later in the season.

Houston sends Hunter Brown to the mound for this game, who has been one of the unheralded stars for this Houston team over the first couple of months of the season. Brown is 5-2 with a 3.61 ERA on the year, and he has put the Astros in position to win games on a regular basis so far in 2023. Here, he will have his hands full with a dangerous Toronto batting order, but Brown has proven himself to be capable of contending with even the most dangerous lineups in the sport.

Meanwhile, the Houston offense will look for a repeat performance of their win over the Blue Jays on Monday night. In that game, they scored 11 runs, a performance that included a grand slam from Corey Julks, and a moon shot of a home run from Yordan Alvarez. That kind of power could be hard to replicate against Kevin Gausman, but you just never know when the Astros' offense is involved.

Toronto Blue Jays Predictions

The Toronto Blue Jays enter Tuesday night in fourth place in the AL East, which is less an indictment of the Blue Jays than it is a testament to the depth of that division this season. Toronto enters this matchup at five games above .500, but there are three teams in the AL East that are 10 games above .500 or better on the year. Here, the Jays look to their ace to move closer to that landmark themselves.

Kevin Gausman has been excellent so far this season, posting a 2.76 ERA despite having a record of just 4-3 on the year. He has allowed two or fewer runs in five straight starts and will need to put forth a similar performance to give his team a chance to win against Houston. That, of course, is easier said than done when the bats of the Astros are involved.

Offensively, Toronto has struggled as of late, failing to reach five runs in four of their last five outings. Even with Gausman on the mound, his pitching is made less valuable if the offense around him cannot provide any run support. That makes the offense of the Blue Jays the biggest key to this game if the Jays are going to come away with a win to even this series up at a game apiece.
