Blue Jays batters will be in high demand against a Giants team that will start Matt Cain Tuesday night in San Francisco.
Cain (0-4, 7.84) got manhandled for eight runs (six earned) on 10 hits over four innings Thursday en route to a 17-7 loss to the Rockies.
Now he will face a current Blue Jays lineup that has hit 40-of-135 against Cain. Troy Tulowitzki, in particular, is 21-for-64 with five home runs against him while Edwin Encarnacion has gone 4-for-12 against him with a .321 ERA over the past seven days.
Don’t be fooled by Cain’s 9-1 record with a 3.01 ERA in 324 career interleague starts. That was then, this is now.
The total for this game is 8, but the UNDER is 16-4-2 in Toronto’s last 22 road games. Cain coming off a win coupled with strong Blue Jays OVER trending (the OVER is 13-5 in the Giants last 18 games overall) would have had us pouncing on the OVER here.
