John Axford (4-1, 5.42 ERA, 1.31 WHIP) vs. Lucas Giolito (7-8, 6.09 ERA, 1.51 WHIP)
Jays are back baby! The Jays hit a season high 5 HR last night! Were going streaking! Up the quad to the playoffs!
The Jays traded today's scheduled starter so it has been deemed a "BP" day. It could get ugly fast with Johnny Axe getting the start. On the plus side, Drury is starting at 3B today so that may be reason enough to stick around.
