The Toronto Blue Jays will look to rebound against the San Diego Padres on Tuesday night but face a tough matchup.
The Padres, who made quick work of Alek Manoah Tuesday night with some help by poor umpiring, will be sending out Yu Darvish to the mound Wednesday — a pitcher who has had a strong season.
Toronto, meanwhile, will look to Jose Berrios to continue to build on what has been a solid season.
