Tampa Bay Rays
So far, this five-game set against the Toronto Blue Jays has not gone well for the Tampa Bay Rays. They have lost three of the first four games and have scored more than two runs just once in the series thus far.
The team has a .242 batting average and averages 4.23 runs per game so far this season. Their pitching staff has a 3.35 ERA and 1.14 WHIP. The team currently holds third place in the American League East, and will look to catch the Blue Jays for second place in the final couple of weeks of the season.

Toronto Blue Jays
After their recent 3-2 and 7-2 wins over the Rays, the Blue Jays are very confident. They are in the first Wild Card position in the American League heading into this afternoon, giving themselves a 5.5-game cushion in terms of their playoff positioning over teams on the outside looking in.
The Blue Jays have recorded 4.69 runs per game and a .261 batting average this season. Alejandro Kirk leads the offense with a .295 batting average. Their pitching staff has a 3.89 ERA and 1.23 WHIP. They are currently sitting in the second spot in the AL East.
According to the team, RP Tayler Saucedo won't be able to participate in games until the end of September due to right hip soreness.
