Game one went very well, hopefully, game two will go the same. Game time is to be 6:15 Eastern.
After the game, the Jays made a roster move:
- Ryan Borucki has been activated from the IL.
- Julian Merryweather has been optioned to Buffalo. That’s what he gets for getting the last 6 outs of the first game of the double header.
And we finally get Teoscar Hernandez back in the four spot of the order. I wasn’t thrilled that they didn’t activate him for the first game, since we were facing a former Cy Young winner but I had forgotten this:
I wise man once said "If you are going up against a former Cy Young winner, don't put your All Star cleanup hitter in the lineup, you will score plenty without him". Those old sayings are always right.— Bluebird Banter (@bluebirdbanter) May 7, 2022
