Boy, oh boy, are these Toronto Blue Jays on a roll! Not only are they fresh off of a three-game sweep of the New York Mets, but they are also winners of seven of their last 10 and three series in a row. Things seem to be firing on all cylinders for a club who is surprisingly still sitting in fourth place in the AL East, just two and a half games behind the Yankees.

Probable starting pitchers

  • For the Blue Jays, right-hander Alek Manoah is set to make his 13th start of the season. Manoah, 25, has had a year mired in struggles so far and looks like a shell of the pitcher he was as recently as last season. In 57.2 innings, the hurler sports a 1-6 record, 5.46 ERA, 6.27 FIP and 75 ERA+. Through and through, he has been the worst pitcher on this staff and he needs a rebound in the worst way.
  • Opposite Manoah in tonight's game will be Brandon Bielak for the Astros. The 27-year-old is going to be making his seventh appearance (sixth start) of the year and has been a strong contributor to this Astros staff. In 31 innings, he is 2-2 with a 3.19 ERA and 134 ERA+ but he has been surrendering just under 10 hits per nine innings, so he is certainly a beatable pitcher, especially at the hands (or bats) of this red-hot Blue Jays club.
