Well, look at that. A nice little winning streak and suddenly the season is alive and well. The Jays took advantage of a beaten up Mariners team, now they’ll be given another opportunity to pick up some badly needed wins against a weak Braves team.
John Gibbons says Tulo should be back in Atlanta & Donaldson "by the weekend..we'll see" #BlueJays

Here’s some damn good news! Apparently we might be close to getting Tulo and Donaldson back, which would be great because the Jays have TWO players on their bench tonight!
And now, the lineups…

Mike Bolsinger: 5 2/3 IP, 3.18 ERA, 4.8 H9, 0 HR9, 6.4 BB9, 6.4 SO9
Bartolo Colon: 38 2/3 IP, 7.22 ERA, 10.7 H9, 1.9 HR9, 2.1 BB9, 6.1 SO9
Yikes, it’s been an ugly season so far for Big Sexy. Since arriving in Atlanta, Bartolo Colon has made seven starts, posting a a league-worst 7.22 earned run average. That’s, uh, probably not what the Braves were expecting. Colon isn’t there to be a world beater, but instead to eat innings, and that’s what he’ll be doing tonight. The Jays really should hit Colon hard, and they might have to, because we’ll be getting round two of the Mike Bolsinger experience. He was strong in his first start last week, but who the hell knows what’s in store tonight!
