The San Diego Padres will head north of the border on Tuesday to start a three-game series at the Toronto Blue Jays.

The Padres come into the game with a 44-50 record and have dropped three straight games. San Diego was swept at Philadelphia over the weekend. For Toronto, they have won four straight games. The Blue Jays remain in third place in the American League East but hold a 53-41 record on the season.

Musgrove on the Hill for San Diego

The pitching matchup for Tuesday features Joe Musgrove for the San Diego Padres and Alex Manoah for the Toronto Blue Jays. Musgrove is 8-2 on the season, with a 3.29 earned run average. The 30-year-old has thrown 79.1 innings this season and struck out 79 batters. In his last six starts, he has gone 6+ innings and struck out 37 batters.

The trade deadline will be interesting for San Diego. Just a season ago, the Padres bought and won the Juan Soto sweepstakes. Now, the Padres look like they could potentially be sellers.

San Diego has been disappointing with the bats. Many projected them to be one of the best offensive teams in the game, and they are 16th in runs scored and 23rd in team batting average.

Fernando Tatis Jr leads the team with a .285 batting average and is tied with Manny Machado with 17 home runs. Soto has 16 home runs but is hitting just .262 on the season.

Toronto Turns Back to Manoah

For Manoah, he will be making his 14th start of the season. Manoah was poor the first two months of the season and then sent down. In his return start, he went six strong innings at Detroit, picking up the win, allowing just one run.

Quietly, Bo Bichette is having a monster season for the Toronto Blue Jays. The slugger is hitting .317 on the season and has drummed 16 home runs. Bichette also has 22 doubles, which is second on the team.

Other offensive starts for the Blue Jays include Vladimir Guerrero Jr and Matt Chapman. Guerrero Jr has 14 home runs, while Chapman leads the team with 12 doubles.

Toronto is known for its offense, but the pitching has got the job done. Toronto ranks 4th in all of baseball in runs allowed, and teams are hitting just .241 against them on the season.

Toronto Wins Again

Despite being the underdogs in this game, the Toronto Blue Jays are the team to beat here. Manoah coming back has something to prove, and the Toronto offense is clicking right now. The Blue Jays want to make their name known in the American League East standings as the postseason gets closer.

We are taking Toronto to win this game. Bet the Blue Jays -105 over the Padres on Tuesday.
