Casey Janssen, RH Kris Benson, RH (0-1, 4.50) (3-2, 3.45)
Game time is 7:05 on CSN and RSN.
Second game of the short series with the Jays, and this time a rematch of Benson/Janssen from last week. Janssen's first two major league starts will both be against the O's, and Benson did really well last time out, giving up two earned on three hits and three walks with four strikeouts in seven innings. Janssen was cut off at four innings, and took the loss despite pitching reasonably well in his big league debut.
This will be Benson's sixth start of the year, two against Toronto and two against Tampa Bay. He's also faced the Angels and Yankees, the two times he didn't have a Quality Start.
At least we won't see anymore damned Jim Brower. Thank God.
