GameThread Game #30: Orioles at Blue Jays

and just like that we’ve reached the halfway mark

MLB: Boston Red Sox at Toronto Blue Jays Gregory Fisher-USA TODAY Sports

The Jays are back in action today, and welcome the opportunity to put some distance between themselves and the Orioles in the postseason standings.

If you have a moment before the game starts, this is worth watching:

So apparently the Jays haven’t had a starter pitch in the 7th inning since Jacob Waguespack did it here in LA a year ago. Will tonight be the night?

We also have some injury updates and roster moves:

Here are tonight’s lineups. Vladdy will stay in the number 3 slot, Shaw has been bumped down to 7th, and Panik gets a start at shortstop.
