GameThread Game #2: Jays @ Cards

MLB: Toronto Blue Jays at St. Louis Cardinals Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

The Jays try to keep their perfect season going with the middle game of three in St. Louis.

Kevin Gausman gets the start for the Jays. He was 12-10 with a 3.35 ERA last year.

Jack Flaherty goes for the Cardinals. He only got into 9 games last year, going 2-1 with a 4.25 ERA. He missed most of the season with a right shoulder injury.

Danny Jansen gets his first start behind the plate. Joe Siddal says he’s ‘improved his technique of receiving pitches.
