After blowing a four-run lead in a gut-wrenching 5-4 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday, the Toronto Blue Jays will look to avoid being swept in the three-game weekend series on Sunday. Having lost seven of their last 10 games, and 15 of their past 21 overall, the Blue Jays (19-25) have now fallen all the way to the basement in the AL East and more than four games behind the last Wild Card spot. Toronto will need to turn things around soon as a huge confidence-building win on Sunday can go a long way in helping that cause.

Probable starting pitchers

  • The Blue Jays will have Alek Manoah take the hill in the series finale. Making his third start of the season, Manoah appeared to be the Manoah of old in his last start against the Minnesota Twins when he went seven strong innings, giving up zero earned runs on four hits with one walk and six strikeouts in a losing cause. He will look to build upon that dominating outing to help the Jays get back into the win column on Sunday.
  • The Rays will counter with 28-year-old right-hander Aaron Civale. Civale has struggled so far in his tenure with the Rays after coming over from the Cleveland Guardians at the trade deadline last year. In nine starts this season, he has posted a 2-3 record with a 5.83 ERA and 1.32 WHIP, giving up a whopping nine home runs in just 46.1 innings of work. If the Jays are looking for an offensive outburst to get the team going again, they will need to take full advantage of this opportunity with a middling Civale taking the mound today.
