Manoah managed to limit the Rays to two runs, which was fortunate for the Blue Jay's offence as they decided to come alive in the seventh inning and come away with the victory. All the damage done by the Rays was via a Ji-Man Choi solo home run in the third inning and a Jonathan Aranda seventh inning solo blast. Manoah continued his excellent streak of holding his opponents to two-run or less in five straight starts and has cemented himself as the Blue Jay's ace this season. Overall he is 14-7 with a 2.43 ERA and 1.00 WHIP with 163 strikeouts over 28 starts. He'll next take the mound in a matchup against the Orioles on Sunday.

Manoah was originally supposed to start the day game of the doubleheader but was scratched with a stomach bug. The Jays' bullpen did not have to work a lot in the first game, as Mitch White was able to pick up six innings in the loss. With Manoah feeling well enough to go in the nightcap, he is a strong starting option.

Manoah woke up with a stomach bug and will not make his scheduled start in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader. Blue Jays' manager John Schnedier said Manoah could be an option for the second game, if he feels better after resting and receiving treatment. The likely backup plan for game two if Manoah is unable to go is a bullpen game.
