Rays 3 @ Jays 2

Didn't see a lot of this one but it seems Tampa's playing typical Ray-ball - great pitching, good defense and speed on the basepaths.

Toronto wasted another decent start, this time by Daniel Norris, and by their inability to get a timely hit - especially a long ball. Russell Martin continued his horrible start, hitless in 21 ABs and his throwing error led to Tampa's winning run.

Game 3 in the set goes tonight with Mark Buehrle taking the hill. (What with NHL playoffs starting tonight and NBA's soon, I'll likely be missing an inning or three for a while.)

Rays 7 @ Jays 12

The Jays offense finally woke up, with Bautista, Travis and Pompey hitting home runs in support of Mark Buehrle who went six for career win #201.

Kevin Pillar made a highlight reel catch that will make the Top 5 of the year at season's end and likely #1.

If Toronto wants a split, they're going to have to beat Chris Archer tonight - never an easy task.

Rays 4 @ Jays 2

Chris Archer whiffed 11 Jays in 7 innings as Tampa won the 4-game set in a game that promises future fireworks.

Archer hit Russell Martin and Edwin Encarnacion with pitches and Jays reliever Marco Estrada plunked Evan Longoria on the hip in retaliation, causing him to leave the game. Words were exchanged and their next series, a week today in Tampa, should be interesting.

Aaron Sanchez started for the Jays and pitched better than his last time out, going 5.1 and giving up 3 earned.

Of greater concern than the game, was losing Jose Reyes. He's been bothered by a rib cage muscle he tweaked in Baltimore and after swinging the bat in the 1st, it flared up and he left game. Ryan Goins, called up earlier in the day from Buffalo, will fill in until Reyes gets back. To make room for Goins, pitcher Todd Redmond was designated for assignment.

Braves 8 @ Jays 7

Toronto won't lose many games where they hit 5 home runs but they managed it yesterday. Jonny Gomes came off the bench for the Braves in the 8th and hit a tie-breaking dinger of his own off Brett Cecil. Then Freddy Freeman added a 2-run shot and it turned out to be enough to win.

Russell Martin got off the schneid with a pair of home runs, as did Josh Donaldson, while Devon Travis added one.

Another not-good start for Drew Hutchison, who couldn't close out the 5th.

Jays will be without Jose Reyes for at least the rest of this weekend while he tries to let a cracked rib heal.

Braves 7 @ Jays 8 (10)

Jays battled back from a 4-0, 7th-inning deficit and won it in the 10th on Josh Donaldson's walk-off home run.

Jose Bautista also homered for the home side and Danny Valencia went 4-4 in only his 2nd game of the year.

Freeman, Piercynski and Johnson went deep for the Braves.

Brett Cecil got the win after a so-so R.A. Dickey start.

Braves 5 @ Jays 2

Toronto's young starter struggled and the Braves' young starter did not, as Shelby Miller beat Daniel Norris and Atlanta left town winners of 2/3.

That drops the Jays record on the opening home stand to a dismal 2 and 5. Worse, starting 2nd baseman and early-season phenom Devon Travis got smacked in the ribs by a pitch and had to leave the game. He, like Jose Reyes are day-to-day. But if either can't go tomorrow against the O's, one will probably have to be dl-d and fan favourite Munenori Kawasaki likely called up from Triple A.

O's 6 @ Jays 13

Jays got to Bud Norris early and often, as they did Opening Day in Baltimore, this time getting to him for 9 runs in 2.1.

Jose Bautista caused a bit of a kerfuffle with a v...e...r...y slow home-run trot in the 7th. A home run that came two pitches after reliever Jason Garcia threw behind his head. The O's were furious but Bautista was anything but contrite.

Edward Encarnacion clobbered a couple of dingers while Ryan Goins, Dalton Pompey and Josh Donaldson all contributed with good days at the plate.

Mark Buehrle once again benefited from a high-octane offense, running his record to 3-0. Norris fell to 0-2.

I think the AL East is going to come to down to a Battle of the Birds and if the early season is any indication, the games between these two clubs are going to be fun.

(Am grateful there was this game and hockey to watch to take my mind off the horrible Raptors debacle.)

O's 2 @ Jays 4

Toronto rode a pair of 2-run homers by Devon Travis and Justin Smoak to get by the orange birds. Despite allowing 7 walks, Aaron Sanchez picked up his first ML win as a starter.

Jays played without RF Jose Bautista who strained his shoulder making a throw in Tuesday's game. He won't play the outfield for a while but no decision has been made yet about DL-ing him.

Despite the ill-feelings generated in the previous game, this one was without incident.

The bluebirds hope to sweep the series tonight when Drew Hutchison faces Chris Tillman.

(I'm hoping the Jays' record won't be under .500 again this year.)

O's 6 @ Jays 7

Drew Hutchison pitched his best game of the young season, going 8 to lead the Jays to a sweep of Baltimore and finish the homestand 5-5.

Jays capitalized on eight free passes from O's pitchers and some timely hitting, including Josh Donaldson's 4th homer of the year.

Manny Machado hit his 2nd and 3rd for Baltimore.

On to Tampa tonight and hopefully, a little payback for them taking 3/4 from Toronto last week.

Jays 3 @ Rays 12

Didn't watch much of this stinker. I was keeping tabs on the Raptors' stinker.

Last night was a good night for me to forget. My Habs lost too....
