Game 10, Blue Jays At Mariners
Hernandez vs Litsch, 7:10 pm.
Happy Felix Day!
The Blue Jays are known for whacking the ball out of the park, but they have a lot more RH power than LH power, and with Felix on the mound and Safeco behind him, this is a good match-up for the M’s. Felix is always a good match-up, but this one especially so. Litsch is a classic Blue Jays pitcher – ehh velocity, throws a cutter, gets more outs than you’d think with his stuff. He’s not a strikeout guy, but against the M’s, you don’t have to be.
Jack Wilson is back in the line-up. Wedge says it’s over. Maybe, but his time here this year was limited anyway, and it’s hard to see that this little dust-up won’t accelerate the schedule for shipping him out.
