Game #88 GameThread: Astros @ Jays

It is great to see Josh Donaldson hitting again. And Troy Tulowitzki is hitting decent finally too.

If those two hit and some of the others do well, it would be fun. The odd win streak would be nice.

There are a couple of bits of news this morning:

  • Aaron Sanchez will make the first start after the break. They haven't announced who follows, likely waiting to see if Marcus Stroman gets a last minute call to the All-Star game.
  • Joe Smith had a bullpen session yesterday and will have another one Wednesday and then should pitch in Buffalo Friday, and all being well, would be back with the Jays soon after.
  • Gibby, asked about second half hopes, said 'world peace....and more wins'.
