The Jays are in Washington (the other Washington) to take on the 2019 World Series champs, who are far from a championship team this year. A sweep would be oh so sweet.

The downside is today’s game is a YouTube game.

Here are tonight’s lineups. Bichette is playing short (a good sign for his nagging shin injuries), and Dickerson will get the start in left.

Today's Lineups

BLUE JAYS NATIONALS
Marcus Semien - 2B Victor Robles - CF
Bo Bichette - SS Alcides Escobar - SS
