Jays hope to gain wild-card ground against Twins

Still in the thick of the American League wild-card race, the Toronto Blue Jays open their final road series of the season on Thursday night against the Minnesota Twins in Minneapolis.

Left-hander Steven Matz (13-7, 3.84 ERA) will start the opener of the four-game set for Toronto, going against veteran right-hander Michael Pineda (7-8, 3.74).

The Blue Jays took two of three games from the Twins last weekend in Toronto. Matz, who is 1-0 with a 3.72 ERA in two career starts against Minnesota, picked up the victory in a 6-2 decision on Saturday afternoon after Pineda, who is 3-5 with a 4.29 ERA in 15 career starts against the Blue Jays, pitched Minnesota to a 7-3 win in the Friday night series opener.
