For Toronto, they sit with a 66-54 record. The Blue Jays are in third place in the American League East, eight games back of the Baltimore Orioles. Toronto is in position for the third wildcard spot, as they are 1.5 games ahead of Seattle.

Phillies Looking to Keep Wins Rolling

Philadelphia is looking to keep moving away from the rest of the National League Wildcard contenders, but back-to-back losses have set them back a bit. The Phillies scored just one run in their last two games against the Twins combined. The back-to-back losses spoiled a three-game winning streak.

The Phillies are led in offense by Bryson Stott, with his .297 batting average. Kyle Schwarber is the top home run hitter on the team with 30 on the season, but the slugger is hitting just .182.

The Phillies also have 74 runs batted in from Alec Bohm. The Philadelphia offense is 12th in Major League Baseball with 550 runs on the season.

Zach Wheeler gets the start for the Philadelphia Phillies. Wheeler is 9-5 on the season with a 3.74 earned run average. The 33-year-old has 155 strikeouts on the season in just over 137 innings pitched. Wheeler is coming off an outing where he went six innings and allowed seven hits and three runs against the Nationals.

Blue Jays Wanting Offense on Tuesday

After three straight losses, the Blue Jays exploded for 11 runs in the win over the Cubs. The Blue Jays used a big outing from Dautlon Varsho, as he hit a home run and drove in five runs. The pitching got a big boost from Hyun Jun-Ryu, who threw five innings in his first start since returning from elbow surgery.

The Toronto offense is led by Bo Bichette, with his .321 batting average, along with Vladimir Guerrero, who has clubbed 18 home runs and driven in 72 runs. The Blue Jays are 5th in Major League Baseball with their .261 batting average and 6th with a .331 on-base percentage.

For the Toronto Blue Jays, they will use Yusei Kikuchi. The 32-year-old left-hander from Japan is 9-4 on the season with a 3.53 earned run average.

Kikuchi is making his 24th start of the season and has thrown 122.1 innings and struck out 125 batters. He is coming off an outing where he allowed three hits and one run over seven innings against the Guardians.

Wheeler Deals on Tuesday

Zack Wheeler is ready to get after it with this start. The Toronto Blue Jays offense can score, but Wheeler is a guy that can slow them down quickly. Look for the combination of Wheeler throwing a great outing and the Phillies’ offense coming to life to lead to a Philadelphia win.

The bet to make in this game is the Philadelphia Phillies -120 over the Toronto Blue Jays.
