Never in doubt, right?
Admittedly, the first two games of the Jays’ series against the Tigers has been a bit more stressful than one would hope. They’ve had to mount comebacks in each of the first two games of the series. Credit where it’s due, however, as the Jays managed to pull out 9-3 and 4-3 victories.
We get our third look of the regular season at Chris Bassitt on the mound today. His start of the season has been far from ideal, to say the least. After a disastrous first game of the season, he rebounded with a decent performance against the Kansas City Royals.
He gets another start on the mound tonight against a Tigers team that has put up eight runs over the last two games.
