Toronto will send J.A. Happ to the mound who will try to rebound from his last two starts where he’s allowed a combined 10 runs.

Philadelphia will counter with promising youngster Aaron Nola who’s coming off his worst start of the season against the Nationals where he allowed four runs in just 3.2 innings of work. Philly is 7-3 in Nola’s 10 starts this season, but the Jays have had their number over the years, going 12-3 in the last 15 games between the clubs.
