Game #38 GameThread: Braves @ Jays

Sorry I haven’t been around much the last couple of days, life speeds up and slows down, and it has been the speed-up mode lately. By the end of the weekend, it should be back to normal.

Chris Bassitt is coming off his best start of the season, 7 shutouts innings. I’d take that, unless Chris wants to throw a complete game.

Spencer Strider threw 5 innings, allowing 2 runs in his last start against the Orioles. On the season, he’s got a 2.70 ERA. The Braves have won all his starts this year, until tonight. Of course, the Braves have scored 7.8 runs in his starts.

Today’s lineups. Springer is back.

We are glad you are here and hope you feel welcome. As a reminder, we have rules. Mostly it’s “Don’t be terrible.” If a moderator asks you to stop doing something, please stop. If you want to discuss the rules, don’t do it in the thread. Email Tom instead. He would love to see an email not offering him money to promote a sports betting site. We also have a BBB Glossary full of GameThread lingo you can find here.
