Game #26 GameThread: Mariners @ Jays

I will be out all day, so preparing this long before we get lineups. I’m going to our Calgary Comic Expo, getting to be a comic nerd all day, roped back from being a comic nerd all year round. Which I once was.

I don’t know if Springer will be able to play today.

Today’s pitching match-up will sound familiar to everyone:

  • Alek Manoah, coming off his best start of the season, or a tie for his best start of the season, comes into the game with a 5.13 ERA and a 1-1 record.
  • He goes against Luis Castillo, 2-0 and 1.52 ERA and is coming off his worst start of the season. 5 innings, 7 hits, 3 earned, 2 walks and 8 strikeouts. Even his bad starts are pretty good.

There is sad news on the Mariners' side, Robbie Ray is out for the season after having surgery to repair his flexor tendon.


Will Manoah start another Quality Start streak tonight?
