For the first time in 2020, the Blue Jays are going for the sweep.

Sadly, it’ll be at least 10 days before Nate Pearson makes another start for the team:

The Jays really need Tanner Roark to pitch many innings today.

Here are today’s lineups. Gurriel will lead off and DH, Grichuk bats clean up, and both Alford and Espinal will get another start.

Today's Lineups

Lourdes Gurriel - DH Chance Sisco - C
Teoscar Hernandez - RF Anthony Santander - RF
Travis Shaw - 3B Renato Nunez - DH
Randal Grichuk - CF Rio Ruiz - 3B

Brandon Drury - 2B Dwight Smith - LF
Santiago Espinal - SS Pat Valaika - SS
Anthony Alford - LF Chris Davis - 1B
