The Toronto Blue Jays picked the best time to drop two in a row to the San Diego Padres, as lately every AL East team has been losing games left and right. Elsewhere around the division, the Rays have officially lost their sole possession of first place as the Orioles have successfully tracked them down in the standings. The two clubs enter the day tied for the lead. At 5.5 GB, the Blue Jays have work to do, but all hope is not lost.

Probable starting pitchers

  • 34-year-old Chris Bassitt will take the mound for the Blue Jays in this afternoon's series finale against the Padres. In 20 starts this season, the right-hander is 9-5 with a 4.12 ERA, 4.66 FIP and 102 ERA+. While his starts have largely been a mixed bag this year, Bassitt remains one of the more steady presences in this Jays rotation.
  • Opposite Bassitt will be Blake Snell, who is having one heck of a season for the Padres. The left-hander has just a 6-7 win-loss record, but his 2.71 ERA currently leads the National League and he boasts a 151 ERA+ on the year. The 2018 AL Cy Young Award winner somehow missed out on the All-Star Game this season but he remains one of the most dangerous southpaws in the game.
