MLB picks: Blue Jays@ Athletics; 10:35 PM

The first game is going to be played at O.co Coliseum on Monday night. The Oakland Athletics is heating up as they have showed an exemplary performance in their latest victory; they are more than just capable to run away with the AL West title. The highly impressive, comeback win lets the A's look for a fourth straight win tonight against the visiting Toronto Blue Jays. Oakland (62-43) has averaged about 1.6 runs while playing eight games from July 8-20, but they have put up a 5.0 per game average while winning six of these eight. The A's have rightly overcome an early five-run deficit to win against the Los Angeles Angels 10-6 on Sunday.

Weekly MLB picks expert informs that Yoenis Cespedes offered three hits with four RBIs which helped Oakland upgrade its division lead to a season-best six games over struggling Texas. Before breaking out, Cespedes was at 2 for 15 that included total five strikeouts in his earlier five games since he won the All-Star Home Run Derby. Teammate Eric Sogard offered three hits too, and is now batting at an average of .407 (11 for 27) with half-dozen RBIs in his last eight contests after he went hitless in his earlier nine at_bats.

Baseball predictions expert reveals that Toronto (48-56) has scored 24 runs while being victorious in three of four from major league-worst Houston this weekend. Half of those runs were scored in Friday's 12-6 victory. Colby Rasmus had delivered the victorious single in the ninth for a 2-1 win Sunday. The Blue Jays have entered this set while going through a seven-game skid. Rasmus is batting at an average of .365 with 14 RBIs in total 23 games this month, and is now at .357 (5 for 14) in his last three games against Oakland. Teammate Edwin Encarnacion had gone 9 for 12 with eight RBIs in the recent Houston series. He's hit an average of .391 (9 for 23) with total two homers and five RBIs in his last half a dozen games against the A's. However, Encarnacion and Rasmus are now at a combined 1 for 6 with three strikeouts against the scheduled Oakland starter A.J. Griffin who is 9-7 with a 3.84 ERA.

Free MLB picks insider reports that Griffin has allowed four hits over 7 2-3 scoreless innings while collecting a 1-0 against the Blue Jays in the last season. However, he had to leave after 32 pitches with a strained shoulder against Toronto on August 4. Griffin allowed a total of three runs and two more homers in 6 1-3 innings that saw a 4-3 win at Houston on Wednesday. He is ranking as one of the major league leaders with a total 23 home runs allowed, but out of those 23, only six have come at home. He'll face Esmil Rogers who is at 3-4 with a 3.74ERA. Rogers could not earn a decision in his last three starts. He allowed a pair of runs despite yielding 10 hits in seven innings of an 8-3, 10-inning loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers on last Wednesday. The right-hander has pitched 3 1-3 scoreless innings of much relief against Oakland last year.
