Rogers Centre will play host to a Tuesday night MLB clash between the Texas Rangers and Toronto Blue Jays. Last night, Texas SP Ariel Jurado was tagged for 11 hits and eight runs in three plus innings of an ugly 19-4 road loss against Toronto. Rougned Odor, Nomar Mazara, and Willie Calhoun delivered solo shots in a losing effort for the Rangers.
Thirty-two year old righty Lance Lynn (14-7 3.60 ERA) will head to the hill for the Rangers in this contest. Through 155 innings this season, Lynn has struck out 178 batters and owns an impressive 1.19 WHIP.
The Toronto Blue Jays have a lineup packed with powerful, young players and will be a force in the near future. On Monday, rookie Bo Bichette put together a four-hit night and scored three times to spark Toronto out of the leadoff spot. Justin Smoak and Randal Grichuk drove in four runs apiece for the Blue Jays, who won for the 50th time this season.
Twenty-five year old lefty Thomas Pannone (2-5 6.83 ERA) will make his seventh start of the year for the Blue Jays. Last time out, Pannone was rocked for seven runs and recorded just seven outs during a 12-6 home loss versus New York.
