After starting the week on a winning note, the Toronto Blue Jays have dropped their last five games by a combined score of 24-9. With the NL West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers (18-11) taking the first two games of the weekend series handily, the Blue Jays (13-15) will be looking to avoid the sweep and put an end to their season’s longest losing streak in Sunday’s finale.

Probable starting pitchers

  • The Blue Jays will sending two-time All-Star Kevin Gausman to the mound. The 2023 AL Cy Young finalist has been off to a rough start to his 2024 campaign as he has posted an 0-3 record with a 5.57 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in five appearances. On a positive note, he has given up just one earned run or less in each of his past two starts, thus showing encouraging signs that he is beginning to turn things around. Gausman will be looking for his first win of the season to help his team get back on the right foot.
  • Former 2018 second round pick Michael Grove will serve as the opener in what is expected to be a bullpen game for the Dodgers. Grove started the year in a relief role for Los Angeles after failing to win a spot in the starting rotation in spring training. In nine appearances to date, he has struggled to a 6.00 ERA and 1.33 WHIP, giving up 10 runs with 6 walks and 18 strikeouts in just 15 innings pitched. Grove and company will look to secure the series sweep over the Jays on Sunday.
