Game Threat: Keep on Crushing Dreams, Blue Jays (62-72) @ Orioles (68-66)

Finding themselves back in the win column on the back of a Kendrys Morales hat trick last night, the Jays continue to try to play spoiler to the hopes and dreams that are the playoffs for the Orioles. Biagini makes his second start since returning from being stretched out, and can hopefully lead the way to some salty Trash Bird tears.

And now, the lineups…

Blue Jays

Joe Biagini: 5.40 ERA, 90 IP, 9.4 H9, 1.0 HR9, 3.2 BB9, 7.7 SO9  

Orioles

Kevin Gausman: 4.98 ERA, 151.2 IP, 10.6 H9, 1.5 HR9, 3.7 BB9, 8.3 SO9 

Biagini didn’t look good in his first game back from AAA going only 3.2 innings and giving up five against the Twins. Tonight he’ll hope for a bounce back start, and at least give the Jays some length. Gausman, who gets the start on the other side, followed a good game, bad game trend throughout August. If that trend continues, and the Jays bats stay hot from last night, he’s due for a stinker.
