- Final score: Astros 7 Blue Jays 2
- Clayton Richard had a better start than last outing, pitching five innings allowing 5 runs on seven hits and a pair of walks. While it's not great that he allowed 5 runs, the more important stat is getting through five innings. It's a bit concerning that he only struck out one batter (meaning his stuff was not overpowering by any means)
- The offence left a lot to be desired. The Blue Jays had at least one base runner reach safely in every inning but the 3rd and 7th innings, yet they could only cash in a pair of runs in the 5th. Eric Sogard and Freddy Galvis both had a pair of hits. Teoscar Hernandez drew a pair of walks and was ninety feet from home after some heads up base running advancing from 1st to 3rd on a wild pitch in the 6th. Cavan Biggio and Brandon Drury had the other two hits today. The Blue Jays can't expect the pitchers to throw a perfect game. They need to give the starters some offensive support.
- Up next, the Blue Jays try to avoid being swept for the 4th time in the last 6 series. Trent Thornton will get the start, looking for the elusive 2nd win of his young career. The Astros will counter with Veteran righty Brad Peacock, who has been a formidable foe at home (3-1 with a 2.90ERA in home starts this season. The Astros are 6-1 in the last 7 home starts for Peacock.
