The Coach's MLB Top Rated SURE SHOT - BOS@TOR
Boston vs. Toronto,

Score: 12 - 6
Total: +115/+9½ Over
The Blue Jays bats came alive on Canada Day at Rogers Center, and the Jays defeated the Red Sox by a score of 11-2. They will look to salvage a split in the final game of this series tonight, and I think we could see another high scoring affair with a couple of below average pitchers starting in this one.
Here are my keys to the game:
1. Pitching - Wade Miley will be on the hill for the visitors, and he's improved since a rough start to the season. Miley (7-7, 4.38 ERA) gave up just a couple runs on five hits over 6.1 innings in a loss to Tampa in his latest start. He allowed four runs on eight hits in a 7-0 home loss to the Jays earlier this season. The Jays will counter with rookie southpaw Matt Boyd, who gave up three home runs in his debut.
2. Toronto Bats - Jose Bautista, Edwin Encarnacion, Josh Donaldson and Justin Smoak all went deep yesterday, and the Jays still lead the majors in scoring with 435 runs (67 more than the Yankees).
3. X-Factor - Jose Reyes is 6-for-13 (.462) in this series so far, and he's 4-for-8 lifetime versus Miley.
