Game 2:  Tuesday, June 9th  –  7:07 ET

It’s a battle of veteran arms in game two, with the Blue Jays happily handing the ball to Mark Buehrle.  The crafty lefty is coming off his second straight complete game, this time a shutout, and has returned to the steady seven-inning machine that the Jays need.

Buehrle helped to kickstart this recent winning streak with an all-around show in Washington, where he singled and broke up a double-play to compliment his quality outing on the mound.  Expect Dioner Navarro to be back behind the plate with their chemistry clicking once again.

Across the diamond, the Marlins will roll out the runner-up of the recent Daniel Norris Lookalike Competition: Over 30 Division: Dan Haren.  Outside of one forgettable outing against the Dodgers in mid-May, Haren has been absolutely fantastic while posting a 6-2 record along with a 3.18 ERA.

Earlier in his career, Haren hit 90-92 MPH with his fastball consistently, but the times have changed.  His average fastball this season has sit around 85-86 MPH, down significantly even from 2014.  He has nearly abandoned his split-finger, instead leaning a little heavier on his cutter and curve.
