Ervin Santana (2-0, 3.73 ERA) vs. Gustavo Chacin (4-1, 4.70). 7:07 PM EST start.
Last night's game notes on espn.com included the following:
Wells has reached base safely in all 27 Toronto games, tying Bret Boone (2003) and Victor Martinez (2006) for the longest streak to begin a season.
If he gets on base tonight against the Angels, he'll have the record all to himself.
Tonight's Blue Jays lineup:
Tonight's Angels lineup:
John Gibbons wisely exiled Russ Adams and Aaron Hill to the bottom of the lineup. They've been dragging down what has otherwise been a great offense, and it would be most beneficial to grant them as few at-bats as possible.
Conversely, the placement of Orlando Cabrera in the number two spot will likely be detrimental to the Angels' offence. He's posted a .563 OPS against lefties this season, and even at his best he's not suited for that role.
