Game #22 - Boston Red Sox (17-4) @ Toronto Blue Jays (13-8)

Tuesday 24 April 2018
7:05PM EDT / Rogers Centre  / Toronto. Ontario
Rick Porcello (LHP 4-0 1.40 23K 0.82) v. J.A. Happ (LHP 3-1 4.50 31K 1.27)

PRE-AMBLE: The Jays are back in action after tonight after a forgettable 4 game series in New York over the weekend. Hopefully the day off yesterday helps reignite our RISP batting after blowing some key opportunities at Yankee Stadium. Both the Red Sox and Blue Jays are both coming in on 2 game losing streaks so tonight is an important game to set the tone for the series. Red Sox send out Cy Young(Rick Porcello) and Jays counter with Happ who has looked solid, but shaky to start the season. 

OF NOTE:  Some "regular" names are absent from the Jays lineup today, with Morales and Grichuk both on the bench. Is this a sign of things to come or is Gibby just playing the hot hands? Will red hot Luke Maile pinch hit tonight if the opportunity arises? Will Hell freeze over? Tune in tonight to find out!
