Tampa Bay vs Toronto: Red Hot AL East Squads Fight in Florida

Toronto: Blue Jays continue slow AL East climb

Following a 19-26 season start, that had them sitting last overall and 5.5 games out of first place on May 23, Toronto is starting to look like contenders in the AL East. The Blues Jay are on a 14-4 recent run and they are three games behind the first place Rays. Scoreboard operators have been busy during the Jays hot streak as 15 of the 18 contests have produced eight or more total runs.

Tampa Bay: Solid June has the Rays a game up on the Yankees

On a 14-6 roll during the month of June, Tampa Bay continues to jockey with New York for top spot in the AL East. Tied with the Yankees back on June 14, the Rays have owned a one game lead for seven days now. While the Rays are in the bottom half of most team batting categories, Tampa has posted at least four runs during eight of their last ten games and they have won eight of those contests. 

Tampa Bay vs Toronto MLB Prediction: The Rays and Blue Jays are battling for the eighth time this season. Tampa Bay holds a 6-1 series edge and they have outscored Toronto by a 37-23 margin.
