Toronto (27-34, 16-16 home, 33-27 O/U) is looking for the home sweep against the struggling Texas Rangers (36-25, 18-17 road, 23-35 O/U). The Blue Jays send one of their best pitchers to the mound in Josh Johnson (0-2, 5.40) against Justin Grimm (5-4, 5.13). Johnson has been hampered by injuries this year but was finally activated on June 4 and hurled a gem at San Francisco, allowing just one run in seven innings although the Blue Jays gave him no support as they lost 2-1. Grimm has been struggling as have the Rangers, who have lost three straight and four of their last five. Grimm allowed eight runs in his last start at Boston on June 4 and has allowed 21 runs in his last four road starts. Here's another tough road game against JoseBautista, Edwin Encarnacion and Colby Rasmus.
