TORONTO -1.5 (110)

Let's head to Toronto for this blowout, as the Blue Jays will devour Chicago's James Shields. Due to the price on this one, I'm going to play this on the Run Line. That's because Shields is making his return from his very first stint on the disabled list, where he was shelved due to a strained right lat. Now, word is he reached 90 pitches in his last rehab outing for Triple-A Charlotte.Now, as for the White Sox lineup, it will struggle against Happ, who finally emerged in his last start, on June 11, when he held Seattle scoreless over six innings and struck out eight. Happ dominates, Shields struggles, and the Blue Jays roll.

CHI. WHITE SOX (165)

J.A. Happ is coming off of a great start for the Blue Jays but he had been shaky in his prior outings and, in fact, had allowed 8 homers in his 5 prior starts. He now faces a White Sox team that is hitting .294 against left-handed pitchers this season. That is good for the #1 spot out of all 30 teams in the majors. Also, the White Sox are hot with 5 wins in their last 6 games and they've averaged 7 runs per game during this hot stretch. Although James Shields is returning from the DL for this start, he did pitch well in his minor league rehabilitation assignment at the AAA level. Also, the veteran was off to a good start this season with a 1.62 ERA in his first 3 starts with the White Sox this season before landing on the disabled list. The Blue Jays struggled again at the plate yesterday. Toronto is now averaging just 3.2 runs per game in their last 12 games. Including yesterday's upset, the White Sox continue to perform well in the big dog role while the Blue Jays are struggling as a big home fave so far this season. Once again, the Jays are over-priced here. Look for the hotter team, the White Sox, to improve to a fantastic 13-7 against left-handed starters on the season.

OVER 9.5 (105)

The White Sox have been knocking the cover off the ball and excel against left handed starters. Today’s game is being played in perfect conditions indoors and I expect a lot of home runs. James Shields has looked good so far for Chicago, but only has limited innings and should struggle coming off the DL. Look for a lot of walks and extra base hits by Toronto. Both teams should score a lot of runs.
