Keys to the Game: Blue Jays Vs Athletics, August 18, 2011


Arguably the hottest pitcher in the Majors right now, Ricky Romero, will take the mound this evening when the Toronto Blue Jays open a four game series in Oakland.  Romero has had total command over the plate in his last four starts, allowing only four Runs in 31 and 1/3 innings with 24 Strikeouts and nine walks.

The Athletics will counter with the struggling Trevor Cahill (1-6 in his last nine starts).  Cahill has given up 36 Runs and  five Home Runs in his previous 53 innings.

Toronto holds the advantage at the plate as well.  This season the Blue Jays have scored 102 more Runs than the Athletics and their team OPS is 58 points higher.  Compare the offensive production of Toronto’s and Oakland’s starting lineup tonight:

TOR: RBIs (Blue), HRs (Orange) & Hits (Green)

OAK: RBIs (Blue), HRs (Orange) & Hits (Green)

The Athletics will need to overcome a lot tonight to gain a victory at the Coliseum.
