On the heels of a 4-2 thriller that the Blue Jays barely hung onto, the club will take on the Houston Astros for the third and final game of this early-season series. On Tuesday night, Chris Bassitt had what was easily the best outing of his Blue Jays career, Jordan Romano earned a four-out save, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Bat Chapman homered, and the Jays are now on the verge of another series win.

Probable starting pitchers

  • José Berríos will make the fourth start of his 2023 season and will be looking to build off of what was a highly successful start for him last time around. Last week against the Rays, Berríos went five innings and allowed just one run while striking out six. This outing provides some much needed hope that perhaps he is starting to turn the page. If Bassitt was able to slam the door on the Astros last night, there is certainly optimism that Berríos can do the same.
  • Luis Garcia, yet another ace-caliber pitcher on the Astros' pitching staff, will take the mound opposite Berríos. After two consecutive seasons of being an All-Star-caliber pitcher, the 26-year-old righty has struggled early on in 2023. Through three starts and 14 innings, he has a 7.71 ERA and 5.67 FIP thanks to 12 earned runs on 19 hits.
