3 of 5

Probables:

Tuesday: Patrick Corbin (3-6, 4.76) vs. Marco Estrada (5-2, 2.58)

Wednesday: Robbie Ray (4-5, 4.44) vs. J.A. Happ (8-3, 3.41)

The pitching in this series is really the tale of two cities. The back-end of Arizona’s rotation has been less than impressive, while Estrada and Happ have continued their success, anchoring the top of Toronto’s. Both pitchers have a case to head to San Diego for this year’s All-Star Game, but Estrada is practically a shoe-in.
