Toronto will have to be a lot more productive at the plate after they only managed to score a single run in the opening game of the series on Tuesday. They will also have to shut down Minnesota’s lineup mainly Royce Lewis after he had a pair of home runs in the opening game of the series on Tuesday, and almost single-handedly defeated the Toronto Blue Jays by himself to get Minnesota their first playoff win in nearly 2 decades.
