No better time than now for the Toronto Blue Jays to go on a hot streak.
While they dropped their last series to the Cleveland Guardians, they have a chance to win this one against the Nationals tonight.
Jose Berrios takes the mound for the Jays as the lineup continues to change. With Bo Bichette hitting the IL with his quad injury, Davis Schneider has slid up to the number two spot. Danny Jansen, who hit a home run Monday, will bat fourth in the order as Brandon Belt gets a day off.

Toronto Blue Jays: 71-60, 10.5 GB, 2.5 WCGB, +55 DIFF.
Washington Nationals: 61-70, 24.0 GB, 8.0 WCGB, -93 DIFF.
Moneyline: TOR -182; WAS +155.
