GameThread Game #72: Braves at Blue Jays

Kevin Sousa-USA TODAY Sports

The Braves are in town for a quick two game series. Last year, the Braves won both games they played here, so let's hope for better results this time.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr was called up to take Sam Gaviglio's roster spot as he is on paternity leave. Here's an amazing quote from John Gibbons on why they chose Gurriel. Please note the last sentence.

Here are tonight's lineups. Still no JD. Smoak stays in the no 2 slot, and Tesocar moves down to third. Maile will catch for Jaime Garcia.
