The Jays are looking to even things up tonight as a beautiful evening unfolds.

Springer is out again tonight. If he wasn’t able to pinch hit last night, it seems wise to keep him out tonight.

Here are tonight’s lineups. Semien leads off and plays SS, Bichette will get a DH day, and Biggio will start at 2nd.

Today's Lineups

Marcus Semien - SS Mark Canha - LF
Bo Bichette - DH Ramon Laureano - CF
Vladimir Guerrero - 1B Matt Olson - 1B
Teoscar Hernandez - RF Sean Murphy - C
Randal Grichuk - CF Matt Chapman - 3B
Lourdes Gurriel - LF Jed Lowrie - 2B
Cavan Biggio - 2B Mitch Moreland - DH
Santiago Espinal - 3B Stephen Piscotty - RF
Danny Jansen - C Vimael Machin - SS
