I much preferred when we were going for the sweep instead of being on the other end of it. Alas, here we are. Sammy G is once again tasked with preventing a sweep.
Here are the lineups for today.
Teoscar Hernandez sits out on this one, which Gibbons clarified is not a punishment for his poor defense yesterday.

"I'm not punishing him by any means, but he's got to get better out there." #BlueJays
Diaz is back in the lineup after missing a couple games with his thumb injury. Gurriel stays in the number 2 slot and will play second base. He has had at least two hits in his past 7 straight games.
GO JAYS GO!
