GameThread Game #157: Astros at Blue Jays

Six games to go

MLB: Houston Astros at Toronto Blue Jays Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports

The Houston Astros and former Blue Jay Roberto Osuna are in town for the final home series of the season. When these two teams met up in Houston earlier this year, it was quite memorable. Curtis Granderson hit two homers off Justin Verlander, Ryan Tepera blew a 9th inning save and Randal Grichuk robbed a home run ball.

AJ Hinch said he will not shy away from using Osuna if there is a save situation tonight. I am sure he will received a mixed reception of cheers, boos and awkward silence.

Here are the lineups for tonight. Both Gurriel brothers are in, in addition to former Astro Teoscar Hernandez. Jonathan Davis gets another start leading off, and Luke Maile as per usual will catch for Marco Estrada.
