A series split would be nice at this point, so let’s start with a win tonight. I really hope this isn’t following the Jays/A’s series pattern of the past few years where one team sweeps the whole season series.

Here is tonight’s lineup. Still no Springer. Reese McGuire has been activated, and Joe Panik will play *checks lineup* first base.
