We could see some fireworks in Game 1 of this important series. Ryu is off b2b terrible starts. He lasted only two innings in one and just 2 1/3 innings in the other. Yet, despite only pitching 4 1/3 innings, he served up four home runs and a total of 12 earned runs. Naturally, both those games reached double-digits. Eight of his last 11 starts have finished above the total. Speaking of home runs, Taillon has served up at least one HR in five straight starts. His last start was a few weeks ago and it happened to come against Ryu and the Jays. Taillon would give up two HR's in that one. On the season, he's got a 5.66 ERA in 13 road starts. Consider the Over.
