Kansas City Royals @ Toronto Blue Jays

Monday, October 19, 2015

8:00 PM ET - Rogers Centre

TV: Fox Sports 1


Come on, Blue Jays. I am not asking you to blow out the Royals or anything, just do well enough to end their season; I don't think that is too much to ask, honestly.

So far Toronto has been unable to beat Royals pitching, losing 0-5 in Game 1 and 3-6 in Game 2. That Game 2 looked well in hand until the Jays defense completely collapsed and Jose Bautista did not seem too happy about it in the post-game interview. The Jays should not require too much offense today as Marcus Stroman takes the mound, making his fourth start of the 2015 postseason.
