The Jays begin a series against the Yankees today, hoping to pull ahead from once again being tied in the basement of the AL East. They’ll have their work cut out for them facing Gerrit Cole tonight, but Lourdes Gurriel Jr and Robbie Ray are here to provide some much needed reinforcements.

Today’s Twins/Red Sox game has been cancelled due to yesterday’s fatal shooting of Duante Wright in Minnesota:

Aaron Hicks will be sitting out of tonight’s game as well:

Here are today’s lineups. Kirk gets a start catching, Gurriel is back in left, and Mr “four hits” Palacios gets another start in right.
