Tuesday it was Justin Smoak who sent a pitch out for a walk off home run and then on Wednesday it was Russell Martin who had a walk off single.

Going for the series win, the Jays will send out J.A. Happ. The LH has gone 3-0 with a 2.76 ERA on the season as he has been the Jays most reliable pitcher this season. Happ has had quality starts in all 5 of his starts this season.
