GameThread Game #137: Astros at Blue Jays

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

The Jays will look to even the series against one of the best teams in baseball as the month of August comes to a close. More Baby Jay dingers would be fun at least.

Clay makes his second start after coming back from the IL. His first one was very good. He has a tougher opponent this time.

Today’s lineup. Rowdy plays. And, old friend Jake Marisnick plays for the Astros:
