Divisional bragging rights will be on the line on Saturday when the Toronto Blue Jays and the Tampa Bay Rays meet at Tropicana Field.

The Blue Jays will trot Marco Estrada out to the mound in this one. Right hander Estrada has a 1-1 record and a 2.43 ERA this season.

It’ll be Jake Odorizzi toeing the rubber for the Rays in this contest. Right hander Odorizzi is 1-1 with a 3.50 ERA so far this season.

Estrada has strung together four straight strong outings since a loss at Tampa Bay, allowing three runs combined over 26 innings, but managed just one victory during that stretch. The 33-year-old Mexican gave up five runs on seven hits over five innings in the earlier matchup with Rays and is 1-5 with a 3.31 ERA in 11 appearances (seven starts) against Tampa Bay in his career. Corey Dickerson is 5-for-11 with a homer versus Estrada, who has completed at least six innings in five of six starts in 2017.

Odorizzi limited Miami to two runs (one earned) on a pair of hits over five innings Monday in his first start since April 15 due to a hamstring injury that landed him on the disabled list. The 27-year-old Illinois native gave up two runs on two hits over six innings to beat the Blue Jays on April 9, improving to 4-2 with a 3.24 ERA in 12 career games against Toronto. Devon Travis is 6-for-15 versus Odorizzi, who boasts 14 strikeouts and just four walks in 18 innings this season but has surrendered four homers.

Oddsmakers currently have the Rays listed as 130-moneyline favorites versus the Blue Jays, while the game’s total is sitting at 7½.

Designated hitter Kendrys Morales looks to continue his power surge at Tropicana Field this season when his Toronto Blue Jays visit the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday for the second of a three-game set. Morales is 7-for-20 with three doubles, three homers and 10 RBIs in five contests at Tampa Bay in 2017 after going deep twice Friday as the Blue Jays rallied for an 8-4 victory.

Justin Smoak also homered in the series opener for Toronto to extend his hitting streak to six games (9-for-23) while leadoff batter Kevin Pillar recorded three hits and an RBI to hit safely for the fourth straight contest (7-for-18). Marco Estrada hopes to register his fifth consecutive quality start for the Blue Jays and he will oppose fellow right-hander Jake Odorizzi on Saturday as the clubs play for the ninth time in a little over a month (4-4 in the first eight). The Rays’ bullpen allowed five runs in the eighth inning as they lost for the third time in four games at home. Tampa Bay third baseman Evan Longoria, who has been bothered by a foot injury of late, had three hits Friday after going 4-for-37 in his previous nine contests.
