The Blue Jays and Phillies conclude their home and home 4 game set on Thursday night inside Citizens Bank Ballpark.
The teams split the games in Toronto as both offenses have been showcased. It was the Phillies in Game 1, while the Blue Jays responded in Game 2 with an 11 spot.
A team that was once hanging around in the NL East, is now in complete danger.
Philadelphia has fallen 10.0 games back after being 3.5 about a month a ago. The Phillies have gone 3-7 over their last 10 as their starting pitching has been the biggest key to their failures.
As a staff, Philadelphia sits with an ERA of 4.13. Defensively, the errors have been costly too, especially as of late. The Phillies have accumulated 39 errors on the season, much of those coming at inopportune times.
Philadelphia will go with Aaron Nola here, who has been the most dependable Phillies pitcher. He sits with an ERA of only 2.98 this season, despite having 5 losses.
Nola has alternated wins and losses over his last 6 starts.
Toronto Blue Jays
Toronto’s offense is becoming scary good again and that doesn’t bode well for the opposition.
The top of the order in Jose Bautista, Edwin Encarnacion, and Josh Donaldson are all clicking at the same time and this Blue Jays offense is putting up some very impressive numbers.
With their recent run, the Jays are now right back in the thick of the AL East, siting just 3.0 games back in the standings.
Toronto will send out J.A Happ, who is a stellar 7-3 this season.
He did start the season off 5-0 and has gone 2-3 since that run, but comes in off a win against Baltimore last time out. He allowed 4 runs in 7.0 innings and was spotted 11 runs by his offense to help allow him to settle in.
