Pitching: Tomo Ohka, RHP

The Jays try for their first 4-game winning streak of the season as they host the D-Rays.  By the pitching matchup, they have their work cut out for them as 5th starter Tomo Ohka goes up against Scott Kazmir (just saying his name still hurts).  

Curtis Thigpen makes his first MLB start at 1st base, where he occasionally played in college.  It will be interesting to see how he is around the bag and, of course, at the plate.  He probably doesn't have the bat to play first long-term, which is just fine given the Jays pressing long-term needs at catcher.
