Were They All Just Lost in the Flood?: GameThread for Toronto Blue Jays at Texas Rangers, 11 June 2009, 8:05 PM EDT

Okay, so after last night's rainout, the Jays will again look for their season-best-tying fourth straight win and the series sweep against the Texas Rangers. The Jays will once again attempt to turn to Ricky Romero, who seemed to straighten himself out a bit last time out against K.C. and the Rangers look to Kevin Millwood to end their recent slide. It was mentioned last night that Millwood's 2.96 ERA thus far this season has been largely the result of good luck (he has a 4.95 FIP), so hopefully that luck runs out tonight against a well-rested Jays team ready to bop a couple into the seats.

Johnny Mac is once again denied playing time because of last night's postponement. Marco Scutaro, who had been given the day off before the rainout yesterday, is back in the lineup tonight and leads off. Barajas gets the night off with Raul Chavez doing the catching and batting ninth.

It would be very nice to take this one tonight and go back home for the series against the Marlins after a sweep, but however tonight's game goes, any road series win is a good thing, and the performance we saw out of Casey Janssen on Tuesday was particularly encouraging. See you all in the thread and, as always, Let's Go Jays!
