GameThread Game #49: Angels at Blue Jays

Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports

Let's keep going with the winning.

Aaron Sanchez has seemed to struggle more with left handed hitters, and there aren't many in the Angels line-up. I hope he does really well today.

Also, the roof is open.

Here are the starting lineups for tonight. Hernandez is back in the lead off spot against a lefty, and Granderson gets the start in left field due to the lack of platoon options. Urshela will start at shortstop again. I really keep thinking they ought to bring back Lourdes Gurriel Jr to start until Diaz is back (I believe Gurriel's 10 days are up today or tomorrow), but maybe Urshela will do alright there. I guess we will see.

Today's Lineups

Ian Kinsler - 2B Teoscar Hernandez - RF
Mike Trout - CF Josh Donaldson - 3B
Justin Upton - LF Justin Smoak - 1B
Albert Pujols - 1B Yangervis Solarte - DH
Shohei Ohtani - DH Kevin Pillar - CF
Andrelton Simmons - SS Russell Martin - C
Zack Cozart - 3B Gio Urshela - SS
Martin Maldonado - C Curtis Granderson - LF
Kole Calhoun - RF Devon Travis - 2B
