We have an afternoon game tonight, with the Jays flying off to Texas afterward.

There isn’t much for Jays’ news before the game. There is this:

Yesterday’s Umpire Scorecard. Jays had the edge, but a fairly decent job by Junior Valentine:

We go for the series win behind Yusei Kikuchi, who seems to have fallen into being a 5-inning pitcher who gives up 2-3 runs. He has a 5.11 ERA in his last five games over 24.2 innings. He’s getting strikeouts, 24 in those five games. But his walks are up again, 12.1% over those games.

Tyler Wells, in his last five starts, has a 4.18 ERA in 28 innings. with 35 strikeouts and 6 walks.
