GameThread Game #159: Orioles at Blue Jays

MLB: Baltimore Orioles at Toronto Blue Jays Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

We have another rubber match for the penultimate series of the season. Just three years ago, these two teams were about to head into the wild card game. The times, how they have changed.

Yennsy Diaz and Ryan Dull have been called up to help provide relief (pun intended) for the bullpen. To make room on the 40-man, Lourdes Gurriel has been transferred to the 60-day IL.

Fun fact:

Here are tonight’s lineups. McKinney and Valera will bat first and second, because reasons. Rowdy gets a start at 1st, Vlad will DH and Maile will catch.

Today's Lineups

Jonathan Villar - SS Billy McKinney - RF
Austin Hays - CF Breyvic Valera - SS
Trey Mancini - DH Cavan Biggio - 2B
Dwight Smith - LF Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - DH
