The Blue Jays start a three game series with the Diamondbacks tonight and the roof is open.

We have Marcus Stroman starting for the Jays and Merrill Kelly for the Diamondbacks.

Marcus is on a little run of good starts. In his last four games he has a 2.25 ERA in 24 innings. Hopefully we score him some runs.

Kelly is a rookie who is off to a pretty good season. 12 starts 4.41 ERA. He’s had 2 good and 2 not so good starts in his last four, added up to a 3.80 ERA in 21.1 innings.

Smoak gets the day off, Biggio plays first with Tellez at DH.

Sogard leads off. He’s scored in each of his last four game and has a .538/.538/923 line in those games.
