And now Barry Davis indicates it is coming down even harder and doesn't look to be stopping. Good news is.... if there is a rain delay... Tom can post his favorite picture!
On the hill tonight provided of course the rain can go away is everyones favorite under-rated pitcher Jesse Litsch taking on the great young thrower Rick Porcello from Detroit. When Detroit came into Toronto just a few short weeks ago Porcello did not get the chance to take on the Jays. Lifetime against the Jays he is 2-2 in 4 starts with a 3.75 ERA and 1.167 WHIP in 24IP, that is an average of 6 Innings per start. When he is going well like he is so far on the season he can be really tough to beat. For Litsch he is 1-1 in 4 starts lifetime against the Tigers, he is sporting a tidy 2.92 ERA and 1.176 WHIP in 24.2 IP against them as well.
