|Yusei Kikuchi threw six strong innings in a 4-1 win over the Rays|
After dropping yesterday's game thanks to shaky bullpen efforts from David Phelps and Tim Mayza, the Blue Jays were looking to start the Canada Day long weekend with a win. They opened a rare 5-game series against the Rays thanks to a double header Saturday to make up one of the postponed games due to the lockout that delayed the start of this season by 2 weeks. The Rays took 2 of 3 in the Blue Jays house of horrors - Tropicana Field - and outscored the Blue Jays 9-7 May 13-15. Yusei Kikuchi got the start with Gabriel Moreno behind the plate. Vlad was back in the field after DH'ing yesterday. Teo was back in RF after getting the full game off yesterday. Alejandro Kirk served as DH tonight. Could the Blue Jays start the Canada Day long weekend with a win? Here is tonight's game recap.
