The Toronto Blue Jays got things off on the right foot on Friday by taking the first game of the series against the San Diego Padres 5-1. The Blue Jays did all the scoring that they needed in the first two innings, and then was backed by the strong pitching of Yariel Rodríguez and company in cruising to their 11th victory of the season. Toronto (11-9) will look to keep that momentum going on Saturday as they aim to take a stranglehold of the series over San Diego (11-11) with their 2024 ace on the mound.

Probable starting pitchers

  • Making his fifth start of the season for the Blue Jays will be 29-year-old right-hander José Berríos. Berríos has been nothing short of sensational for Toronto this season, leading the way with a stellar 3-0 record with a 1.05 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and having gone at least six innings while giving up two runs or less in each of his starts. He possesses a career 0-2 record despite a 2.08 ERA against the Padres and thus will be looking for his first ever win against them.
  • With team ace Yu Darvish on the IL, the Padres will send recently recalled right-handed pitcher Randy Vásquez to the mound. Vásquez was one of the main pieces that San Diego received in the Juan Soto trade with the New York Yankees. Last season with the Yankees, he posted a 2-2 record with a 2.87 ERA and 1.27 WHIP in 11 games, including five starts. After starting the year in Triple-A, Vásquez will be making his Padres season debut against the Blue Jays.
