Blue Jays Analysis: On a 2-game losing run

The Blue Jays are currently below .500 after losing 7 of their last 9 matches. Toronto was limited to three runs in each of their seven defeats. Not surprisingly, the team’s run average (3.47) has dropped to 28th place, which has hindered their progress. This is true even though MLB has the 10th-lowest strikeout percentage and the sixth-highest walk percentage. The Jays rank 22nd in slugging percentage, 17th in OBP, and 23rd in batting average. They rank 21st in home runs scored and 17th in stolen bases. In the meanwhile, the Blue Jays’ rotation has produced some outstanding hits. Among them is Yusei Kikuchi, the starting pitcher for this contest, who helped the team win three of his five outings in April.


Nationals Analysis: They just lost 6-0

Left-hander Patrick Corbin, who is 0-3 with a 6.82 ERA and who gave up seven runs, four earned, on 8 hits in his last outing against the Miami Marlins, will start for Washington. This season, Corbin is 0-1 at home with a 3.18 ERA after going 11.1 innings in two starts and giving up four runs on 12 hits. Washington is ranked 21st overall with a team ERA of 4.24. The Nationals are hitting .228/.305/.361, good for 21st, 19th, and 22nd in the league. Washington is slashing .220/.301/.324 at home.
