Game 2: Wednesday, September 16th  –  7:10 ET
David Price (15-5, 2.46)  vs.  Shelby Miller (5-14, 2.86)

The ace is on the mound Wednesday, looking for his 16th win on the season with a very favourable matchup. Price has been everything we could have hoped for since coming to the Jays, and continued his winning ways last time out against the Yankees.

Price wasn’t at his best against New York, but with the offensive outburst behind him, he didn’t need to be. Toronto opted to pull the lefty after just five innings given their lead, with Price allowing two earned runs on six hits. The win moved his Blue Jays record to 6-1.

Across the field, we see the antithesis of Drew Hutchison. Shelby Miller may be experiencing the league’s ultimate hard-luck season in 2015, with an ERA and record that just don’t belong together. The Blue Jays may be catching the talented righty at an opportune time, though, as he’s lost five straight starts. In his last outing against the Mets, Miller allowed three earned runs on seven hits over 6.0 innings.
