Yesterday the Blue Jays swept the double header, and today they'll go for the series sweep. This will be their third attempt at sweeping a series so far this season. Winning the first two games of a series is such a delight, because it feels like it takes pressure off the third game. What a time to be alive.

Seeing Travis and Grichuk swinging a hot bat was lovely. I hope it continues.

Here's the lineup for today. Martin's and Travis' days off are finally staggered.
