Rangers vs. Blue Jays prediction: Taking Toronto twice

After throwing curve balls at the media since January, White House press secretary Jen Psaki will throw out the first pitch at Sunday’s Padres-Nationals game.

Let’s play two. Rain in Buffalo forced cancellation of Saturday’s Blue Jays-Rangers game. They will play a doubleheader Sunday. Pitching matchup will remain the same for the opener: the Rangers’ Kolby Allard (2-6, 3.69 ERA) against the Blue Jays’ Hyun Jin Ryu (8-5, 3.56 ERA).

We will stick with our 10-unit play and back the Jays in the nightcap as well. Steven Matz (7-4, 4.72 ERA) has experienced some problematic starts after a very effective spring. Matz has allowed seven runs over his past two starts and hasn’t seen the fifth inning since June 12. Texas counters with Mike Foltynewicz (2-8, 5.11 ERA), who really hasn’t been effective all year. Combine that with the fact the Rangers had to spend Saturday in downtown Buffalo on a rainy day, they should be rarin’ to get out of there as quickly as possible. Another 20 units on the Jays.

No play Saturday. Holding at -712 jaylenos.
