GDB 24.0: Can the Toronto Blue Jays win with Joey Chestnut in the stands?
By Zach Laing1 month ago
It’s Loonie Dog night under the dome and special guest Joey Chestnut will be in attendance.
Throwing out the first pitch of the game, Chestnut will look to set the tempo for the game as Jose Berrios takes the mound. It’s a big night for him as he looks to build off two strong performances. In his last two games, Berrios has 12 innings allowing seven hits, three earned runs and issuing just one walk.
His last performance saw him go seven innings against the Houston Astros allowing just two earned runs. Whatever is working for him sure is working, because he’s looked different these last two starts. It’s a far cry from the terrible performances he put up against the Kansas City Royals and LA Angels earlier this year.
Berrios has struggled as a whole since he joined Toronto and there are more than enough theories as to what’s gone on. Truth be told, the Jays paid a lot for him when they traded for him in July 2021, so let’s hope that these last few games are a sign of things to come.
