Coming off of what was almost an incredible come-from-behind victory over the Rockies, the Toronto Blue Jays are set to face off against the NL West cellar-dwellers for one more matchup in this weekend series. The bats have been strong for the Jays but ultimately, coming through with RISP has remained an issue and, surprisingly, the team's defense has been less than stellar as well, leading to a rough loss yesterday.
Probable starting pitchers
- Colorado native Kevin Gausman is going to take the ball for the Blue Jays, making his 27th start of the year. Entering the day, the right-hander leads the American League in strikeouts with 202 and has an incredible 2.83 FIP as well. While he's allowed an uncharacteristically high amount of runs in a few of his last five outings, Gausman remains one of the league's best starters and is capable of shutting down this Rockies lineup.
- Opposite Gausman, one of the game's best pitchers, will be Chase Anderson, one of the game's worst. The former Blue Jay spent time on both the Rays and Rockies this season and has consistently struggled to keep the opposition off the scoreboard. In total, Anderson has made 14 appearances (12 starts) between his two clubs and has a combined 6.08 ERA and 6.10 FIP.
