It certainly wasn't how they, or anyone for that matter, drew it up. But thanks to some weird and wacky baseball — not to mention the go-ahead home run from Davis Schneider — the Toronto Blue Jays (3-3) came away with a crazy 2-1 win on Tuesday night after trailing the Houston Astros (1-5) by a run heading into the ninth inning. The Jays evened their record at .500 with the victory and will look to go over that mark for the first time in 2024 in the series finale on Wednesday.

Probable starting pitchers

  • Chris Bassitt (0-1) will take the ball for manager John Schneider and the Jays tonight. The 35-year-old threw five innings in his season debut against the Tampa Bay Rays but surrendered five runs (four earned) on six hits despite striking out six. The righty has a career 3.72 ERA versus the Astros, with a 5-3 record over 13 games (12 starts). Last season, Bassitt started and won both games against Houston, holding them to just two runs over 14 1/3 innings.
  • The Astros will send Cristian Javier (0-0) to the mound tonight. The right-hander took a no-decision in his season debut against the New York Yankees despite throwing six shutout innings with six strikeouts. In 2023, the Dominican Republic native won his lone start against the Blue Jays. He held the Toronto lineup to one run off of three hits over five innings and punched out five in the outing.
