Do we really have to talk about how these past few days have gone for the Blue Jays? In two consecutive games the club clawed back from an early deficit just to end up losing late. On Monday, Jordan Romano surrendered a walkoff home run to the first batter he faced and then on Tuesday it was a mixture of Yusei Kikuchi and Erik Swanson that allowed the Red Sox to once again come back and emerge victorious.

Probable starting pitchers

  • Alek Manoah will take the mound for the Blue Jays in the third of a four-game matchup at Fenway. The 25-year-old has struggled with major inconsistency on the mound to begin the 2023 campaign. Through 31.1 innings, he has a 4.88 ERA, 5.86 FIP and 88 ERA+. Walks are way up for him and there has seemed to be a constant string of baserunners on base during the vast majority of his starts. Notably, he will be facing Alex Verdugo for the first time since the outfielder called Manoah's behavior on the mound "unacceptable" to the media.
  • Canadian right-hander Nick Pivetta is set to start for the Red Sox in tonight's matchup. The 30-year-old, like Manoah, has struggled to stay consistent during the early goings of the season. In five starts and 24.2 innings, he has a 5.11 ERA, 5.31 FIP and 92 ERA+ with 28 strikeouts and 11 walks.
