After falling to the Toronto Blue Jays and earning their first loss of the season, the Tampa Bay Rays are gearing up for the second of a three-game set at the Rogers Centre in Toronto. In Friday's game, Christian Bethancourt and Josh Lowe both homered and Yonny Chirinos was nearly perfect in just under four innings of relief, but the Rays were not able to continue the historic win streak.

Probable starting pitchers

  • Calvin Faucher figures to be the opener in Saturday's game against the Blue Jays. The 27-year-old will be making the first "start" of his career and will be followed by left-hander Josh Fleming. Faucher has a 4.50 ERA in six innings of work while Fleming has had a harder time getting batters out. In two appearances, the southpaw has a 6.43 ERA in seven innings, but he's also struck out seven and walked only one batter.
  • For the Blue Jays, left-hander Yusei Kikuchi will make his third start of the year. Kikuchi had an awful year for the Jays last year and is looking to bounce back. He was dominant in Spring Training (0.87 ERA in 20.2 innings) but has yet to consistently retire batters in the regular season. Through 9.1 innings, the 31-year-old has an ERA of 6.75 thanks to the four home runs he's already surrendered.
