Going for the series win, take 2.

Ryan Borucki will be making his second major league start, and his first start at home. I will be there. Life is good.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr has been recalled today as well, ending the brief Darnell Sweeney era in Toronto. And he gets a start, giving Devon Travis a day off. Devon is in a bit of a slump so maybe a couple of days off would do him good.
