Who will win the series? I don't know.

We hit a grand slam yesterday and lost, I'm still salty about this.

Today's pitching matchup features two guys with ERAs north of 5: Kyle Gibson (5.76) and Joe Biagani (5.11). Biagani looks to be sort of a 6th starter, as he's been used both in the bullpen and in the rotation for Toronto. This will be his first start since July 2nd. Gibson is coming off his best start of the year (game score of 66) where he went 7 innings, allowing just 1 run and striking out a cool 8 batters.

Here are the lineups; the insanely hot Jorge Polanco is batting third. He's batting .376/.411/.647 with 4 HRs in August so far.
