This past weekend the Blue Jays were swept by the Los Angeles Angels, and have now lost four, out of their last five. They now face the Kansas City Royals for three games at home, then travel to Tampa Bay for a three game set.

The Jays dropped the first game seven to five,  as their eighth inning comeback fell short. In their next game the blue birds dropped a six to three decision, with Brian Tallet giving up two homers. In the final game the Blue Jays lost a pitcher battle between Ricky Romero, and Ervin Santana three to one.

The Jays are now finishing up their home stand versus the Kansas Royals who sport a record of five and seven. The Royals are coming off a ten run performance over the twins. The probable starting match ups are as follows: Brian Bannister vs. Brandon Morrow, Kyle Davies vs. Dana Eveland, Zack Greinke vs. Shaun Marcum.

The Jays have been struggling at home this season sporting a 2-5 record. The Jays will need to improve this, as every team should have a better record at home, than on the road.

Vernon Wells has continued his hot streak with his six home runs, while Brian Bannister has only given up three runs over his past twelve innings. These are the players to watch out for as recomended by me during this series.
