The Blue Jays get one more chance to claim a series win. Ryan Borucki will start against the team he grew up cheering for. To go along with the tradition of Ryan’s starts, the Blue Jays probably won’t score any runs.
Here is a fun Twitter thread from Ryan’s brother:
Even though we grew up on the north side, our dad raised us as Sox fans. We’ve been coming to games at the ballpark for as long as we can remember. This is a shot of the young lefty and our pops. pic.twitter.com/AjzA4Yy44h— Matt Borucki (@TheeMattB) July 28, 2018
With all the dreariness surrounding the team these days, it’s nice to have little fun things to celebrate and watch out for.
Also, Joe Biagini may close, so there’s that as well.
Here’s today’s lineup. Drury gets another start, and Travis gets another day off. Grichuk is back up in the lead off spot and Gurriel Jr will look to continue his multi-hit streak.
