The Jays had a 4-0 lead in the seventh inning of today’s game, but ended up losing 8-4 in the 11th inning. The best part about it? They play again. They’ll either redeem themselves and make us forget about this afternoon’s catastrophe, or they’ll make it even worse. We shall see, because we all hate ourselves, so we’re going to watch the nightcap regardless.
Roberto Osuna says he feels good physically and with his stuff. "I don't know (what's going on). I can't understand."

Roberto Osuna blew the save today by allowing a two-run home run to Randal Grichuk, who has a shitty name. That’s what he had to say about it. Apparently his stuff feels good, but for whatever reason he isn’t getting results. His velocity seems to be down this year, so that’s definitely a problem.
Anyways, on to the next one.

Adam Wainwright: 18 2/3 IP, 6.27 ERA, 1.929 WHIP, 10.6 SO9
Holy fuck what a mismatch. We got Casey Lawrence, the 29-year-old rookie going up against Adam Wainwright, who had already won a World Series and finished as a Cy Young finalist by that age. Thankfully Wainwright is no longer the dominant ace he used to be, and currently has allowed more hits than any other starter in baseball. So maybe Jarrod Saltalamacchia and the boyz can get things going!
