The Jays took two in Texas to force a deciding game five at the Rogers Centre on Wednesday.
They certainly look to be rounding into form and have the advantage heading into the game.
It will be up to veteran Cole Hamels to stymie them for Texas.
The Rangers are in trouble, not only did they lose two games over the weekend but they let the jays get their swagger back.
Playing at home in game 3 and 4 the Rangers did not put up all that much of a fight as they looked to close out the series. Their starting pitching especially wasn’t up to snuff.
In a win or go home game the Rangers have elected to go with lefty Cole Hamels, who started in game two.
The choice is curious given how righty Yovani Gallardo has pitched really well against the Jays this season, and as a righty seems to be more able to control their lineup.
I guess postseason experience trumps that but the oddsmakers don’t seem to be giving Texas much of a shot.
Toronto Blue Jays
When the Jays are rolling they are hard to stop. After a couple of lackluster games to start the series they are now tied up and heading for home, one of the better home field advantages in the Majors right now.
In the last game the Jays went yard three times and even though there has been heated debate about what pitchers were used and when the game was essentially over when they went up 7-1.
Heading back home they need to keep the same approach. The more runs they score the more heat they keep off young Marcus Stroman, who will be getting his close up in this one.
Stroman has been the best Jays pitcher over the last month of the season. The only reason to worry is if he can’t corral his emotions as he is an excitable guy. Tune in because you are going to love this kid.
