With the Blue Jays losing to Baltimore on Thursday night, the weekend is set for an overdose of drama. They’re in the driver’s seat to advance into the postseason, but have to perform on the road in Boston to do it. Here’s a preview.
With the Red Sox behind them, the Blue Jays (78-64) should get some reprieve, as they host the Rays (60-82) for a three-game series. The Rays got the best of the Jays earlier this month, but those games were at the Trop.
This is undoubtedly the biggest series of the season so far. After a disastrous series against the Yankees, the Blue Jays (77-62) now find themselves one game behind the Red Sox (78-61) in the AL East title race.
