GameThread Game #7: White Sox at Blue Jays

Going for the sweep

Kevin Sousa-USA TODAY Sports

We have been treated to a few very fun games. The first two games felt much like 2017, but these last four have been significantly better. I know the White Sox are a rebuilding team, but the Blue Jays appear to be actually good.

Supporting Facts:

  • The Blue Jays scored 14 runs yesterday. They only scored 14 or more once last year

  • After six games in 2017, the Blue Jays were 1-5. Today they are 4-2

  • The Blue Jays have hit a home run in every game so far

  • The Blue Jays won their first series of the season in their second series. It took seven series for the Blue Jays to win one last year

  • The Blue Jays didn't win their fourth game in 2017 until April 21st

A win today would tie the Jays' longest win streak from 2017 (5 games twice), and give the team their first sweep since the four game series against the A's last July. Even if they lose today, the Blue Jays are guaranteed a winning record for this homestand.

Carson Fulmer gets the start for the White Sox today. He had three terrible starts in Spring Training, with his fourth and last one being his only good one.
