Another rubber match, hopefully with a different result this time. As difficult as it was to lose that one run game yesterday, that fantastic start from Jaime Garcia was a thing of beauty.
Couple of Gibby tidbits:
Seung-hwan Oh would have closed for #BlueJays yesterday if they'd taken the lead late.#Jays continue mixing and matching in closer's role. Tepera, Clippard, Axford could all be called on.— Ben Nicholson-Smith (@bnicholsonsmith) May 27, 2018
At this point, Joe Biagini's a reliever for #BlueJays, not a starter
Could be called on any time from 5th to 8th inning, including leverage spots. Numbers suggest Biagini's far better in
relief.— Ben Nicholson-Smith (@bnicholsonsmith) May 27, 2018
