BLUE JAYS ONLINE HERE.
The Blue Jays’ pitcher Colby can pitch his way out of any jam. The guy has a smoking fast ball and can change speeds well. His ERA is sitting at 3.71 and he has only been able to notch 6 wins on 5 losses this season. Colby has battled injuries in the past but as he heads into this game healthy he can easily charge through the Rangers lineup.
Aaron will be pitching for the Blue Jays who took the first game of this series 10-1. Toronto also earned a big win during game 2 with a final score of 5-3. Aaron has great control of the ball and if he is in a zone he might be able to improve on his season ERA of 3.00. He is looking to add to his 15 wins in the regular season and is a fierce competitor who will have the weight of the season on his shoulders. Good luck to both teams.
