GameThread Game #15: Blue Jays at Cleveland (Rain Delay)

We are in another rain delay.

The game has been cancelled, they will make it up Thursday, May 3 at 1:00. That was an off-day for the Jays, they play in Minnesota the day before and then Tampa the day after.

Overcoming a 4-0 deficit and scoring 8 unanswered runs against Cleveland last night was blissful. If the Jays want to keep destroying other teams' bullpens, I can absolutely get behind that.

With their win last night, the Jays are now guaranteed to return home with a winning record for this road trip. A 5-2 record is pretty darn good, but it would be extra sweet to tack on at least one more win. However, the weather is not in our favour at the moment.

Devon Travis is back in the lineup after being hit in the wrist by a pitch yesterday. This is the first time this year that John Gibbons has run out the same lineup on back to back days.
