Toronto Blue Jays
The Jays haven’t won a series in about a month. They lost, 7–2, to the Braves on Tuesday and then left Atlanta without a win.
Trent Thornton will turn 26 on the final day of the month in this the tail end of his rookie season. He’s got an ERA over 5.00 but he’s made 27 starts, which is impressive in itself for a rookie.
He’s faced Tampa Bay three times this season and didn’t pitch particularly well in any of the three. Toronto lost all three but Thornton only finished on the hook in one.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays, meanwhile, split a doubleheader with Baltimore on Tuesday and finish up with the O’s for the season on Wednesday, when they will attempt to take three out of the four this week.
Trevor Richards started the first game, which Tampa lost, and pitched pretty well, giving up two runs in five innings.
The Orioles kept it tight and went ahead on an Anthony Santander solo homer in the sixth. Final score: 4–2.
The Rays bounced back to blank Baltimore in the nightcap behind seven different pitchers, beginning with Andrew Kittredge and concluding with Emilio Pagan.
Nick Anderson struck out the only batter he faced in the seventh and all three of his men in the eighth to finish with four strikeouts in 1.1 innings.
Oakland won and Cleveland lost, which means the Rays enter Wednesday in the driver’s seat, leading the Wild Card by percentage points over Oakland and two wins (even in the loss column) over the Indians.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction: over.
The Rays pitching has been just so good, no matter who they send out there. Perhaps all the innings catch up to them in this one, though. Tampa ought to score plenty on Thornton, at least.
