The Oakland Athletics and the Toronto Blue Jays will both be trying to pick up a win on Monday when they battle at Rogers Centre.

The Athletics will pin their hopes on the pitching of right hander Chris Smith in this game. Smith has a 0-0 record and a 2.77 ERA this season.

Starting this game for the Blue Jays will be Francisco Liriano. The left hander has a 6.15 ERA to go along with a 5-5 record this season.

Smith will be making his third start of the season – and the third of his career – after 63 relief appearances over parts of four major-league campaigns. The 36-year-old Californian is coming off a strong outing against Tampa Bay on Tuesday in which he allowed two runs – one earned – and three hits over seven innings. Smith was tagged for four runs and six hits – two homers – over 2 1/3 frames out of the bullpen at Toronto on Aug. 23, 2008 while with Boston.

Liriano will be starting on three days’ rest in place of Aaron Sanchez, who has landed on the disabled list with a blister. The 33-year-old should be well-rested, as the Dominican lasted only 1 2/3 innings in a no-decision at Boston on Thursday after yielding three runs – two earned – and six hits. Liriano is 5-4 with a 4.30 ERA in 17 career appearances (15 starts) against the Athletics, including a no-decision at Oakland on June 7 in which he gave up four runs over five frames.

Oddsmakers currently have the Blue Jays listed as 156-money line favorites versus the Athletics, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

Two teams with identical disappointing records begin a four-game series Monday, when the Toronto Blue Jays host the Oakland Athletics. A third straight postseason appearance likely isn’t in the cards for Toronto (44-54), which sits in the basement of the American League East after being on the wrong end of a three-game sweep at Cleveland over the weekend.

The Blue Jays began the second half of the season with a 3-7 road trip, are 10 games behind division-leading Boston and 6 1/2 out of the second AL wild-card spot. Slugger Jose Bautista has recorded just one RBI over his last seven games, striking out 12 times in that span – including three in Sunday’s 8-1 loss to the Indians. Oakland, which is languishing in last place in the AL West, salvaged the finale of its three-game road series against the New York Mets on Sunday with a 3-2 triumph. Rookie Matt Chapman belted a solo homer (one of three on the day by the Athletics) in the seventh inning to snap a tie, giving him two blasts in as many days and four in nine contests since the All-Star break.

Toronto lost its last outing, a 8-1 result against the Indians on July 23. Bettors who backed the Indians at -184 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (9) sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

In their last action, Oakland was a 3-2 winner on the road against the Mets. Bettors on Oakland at 133 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (5) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
