Keys to the Game: Angels Vs Blue Jays, August 13, 2011


After their 5-1 victory last evening, the Los Angeles Angels will send their Ace, Jared Weaver, to the mound at the Rogers Centre this afternoon.  Fresh off of a six game suspension, Weaver looks to bolster his Cy Young candidacy with another dominate outing.  The Blue Jays will counter with their opening day starter, Ricky Romero.  Romero has been Weaveresque in his last three starts, posting a 1.11 ERA. See how to today’s starters compare over their last three starts:

ERs (Blue), HRs (Orange) & Outs Recorded Per ER (Green)

Weaver will face the high powered Toronto offense (6th in the Majors in runs scored) that performs much better inside the Rogers Centre.  Check out the production of the Blue Jays’ starting lineup today at home and on the road:

RBIs (Blue), HRs (Orange) & SOs (Green)

Fortunately for Weaver and the Angels, the Major League leader in Home Runs, Jose Bautista, is out of Toronto’s lineup today, as he committed two errors in last night’s loss.  Will Weaver get his 15th win this afternoon or will Romero continue his streak of dominant starts?
