The Blue Jays came out firing on all cylinders after the All-Star break, including a 28-5 shellacking of the Red Sox to set off a sweep at Fenway. Toronto has taken second place in the American League East, and is currently leading for the first of three AL Wild Card spots.

Play-by-play man Jason Benetti is joined in the booth by Tigers analyst Dan Petry, a 13-year veteran who won the World Series with Detroit in 1984, and Blue Jays counterpart Pat Tabler, also a World Series champion with Toronto.

NBC Sports’ Ahmed Fareed hosts the MLB Sunday Leadoff pre- and postgame shows each week, and also serves as the in-game reporter. This Sunday, Fareed is joined by former All-Star Cliff Floyd, a frequent contributor, and Rob Friedman, aka PitchingNinja on Twitter (@PitchingNinja), who provides pregame pitching breakdowns.
