This is an important series for the Jays to get back into the race. With 4.5 games behind the Yankees winning the series is necessary to keep hope up for our slim chances this season. We're just 5 games out of the wild card spot and 4 teams we need to beat.

Coming off a 3 game sweep of the Rangers the time is now to make a move. Litsch hopes to revenge the Yankees for his beating he took on May 30th.
