The Jays are going for the series win, which would be oh so sweet. Perhaps we can try scoring early and saving all the late-inning drama.
Minor Leaguer and I were at the Dodgers game last night, streaming the Jays game at the same time after Tom summoned him to break up the no-hitter. We were happy to be able to play a role in the win.
Here are today’s lineups. Springer sits, Vlad DHs and Lamb plays 1st. Valera gets the start at 3rd.
|Bo Bichette - SS||Cedric Mullins - CF|
|Marcus Semien - 2B||Ryan Mountcastle - 1B|
|Vladimir Guerrero - DH||Austin Hays - RF|
|Teoscar Hernandez - RF||Anthony Santander - DH|
|Lourdes Gurriel - LF||Ramon Urias - 2B|
|Randal Grichuk - CF||Ryan McKenna - LF|
|Danny Jansen - C||Jorge Mateo - SS|
|Breyvic Valera - 3B||Kelvin Gutierrez - 3B|
|Jake Lamb - 1B||Austin Wynns - C|
