After getting swept at the hand of the Colorado Rockies, the Blue Jays are just the type of visitors the A’s need to get back those wins. They’re 48-56, having gone 5-5 in their past 10 games, and are 21-28 on the road.

Starting for the Jays will be veteran Marco Estrada, who’s 4-7 with a 4.72 ERA this year – but he’s missed significant time on the DL. He hasn’t pitched since July 3rd due to a strained glute.

The A’s will match with a veteran of their own in Edwin Jackson, who’s 1-2 with a 3.86 ERA. Jackson is looking for a bounce-back game: his last time out, he went just 4.1 innings, giving up 5 earned runs on seven hits.

First pitch is at 7:05!
