After a big 6-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays last night, the Toronto Blue Jays will look to make it two in a row on Saturday against their long-time divisional rival. The Blue Jays (86-68) currently sit in the second Wild Card spot, one game up now on the suddenly fallen Houston Astros and 1.5 games up on the Seattle Mariners. With a little over a week remaining in the schedule, the Jays hope to put a firmer hold on their current playoff position.
Probable starting pitchers
- The Blue Jays will be sending the consistently reliable Hyun Jin Ryu to the mound. Since his sub-par season debut back in early August, Ryu has held the opposition to three earned runs or less in each of his last eight starts. For the season, he is 3-3 with a 2.62 ERA with 35 strikeouts in 44.2 innings pitched. He aims to keep the Jays momentum going as he looks for his fourth win of the season.
- The Rays will counter with journeyman Zack Littell, who will be making his 14th start of the season. Claimed off waivers from the Boston Red Sox back in May, Littell has actually emerged as one of the important members of the Rays starting rotation. In particular, he has helped the Rays stay afloat in the battle for the AL East divisional title, despite the team losing three key starters from the rotation due to season-ending injuries. Littell will also be chasing after his fourth win of the season as he looks to help the Rays close in on the Baltimore Orioles with one week remaining in the schedule.
