The Toronto Blue Jays are making their way out of an early season funk, but things won’t get any easier as the hottest team in baseball awaits them. The Cleveland Indians will be looking to collect their 13th consecutive victory when they visit the Jays in the opener of a four-game set on Thursday.

Carlos Carrasco and R.A. Dickey are slated to get the ball. Carrasco (3-2, 2.73 ERA) has posted a quality start in each of his last three outings and has 21 strikeouts and six walks in that span. Carrasco owns an ugly 8.62 career ERA against Canada’s lone MLB team.
Dickey (5-8, 4.23) is coming off a pair of losses despite giving his team quality starts on June 13 and 18. Dickey’s only appearance against the Tribe last year came in September when he allowed one run in a complete-game win.
