Jays 2 @ Rays 4

The Jays' pen wasted a fine effort from starter Daniel Norris who went 7 complete, allowing only a single run.

Jays were up 2-1 in the 8th when Brett Cecil came on and gave up a 2-out single. He was replaced by Miguel Castro who was asked for a 4-out save and couldn't deliver. James Loney and Tim Beckham did the damage at the plate while Fieri got the win and Boxberger the save.

Of note: For the first time in MLB history, a team started 3 Canadian position players: Russel Martin, Dalton Pompey and Michael Saunders. Saunders was making his first start for the Jays since coming off the DL. Jose Bautista missed his 3rd straight game with a shoulder strain.

Jays 1 @ Rays 5

Well, Death Valley - aka Tropicana Field - strikes again. (And there we go, sub-.500 again.)

In the Jays' last 23 series there, guess how many they've won?

Nope.

Nope. Try again.

No.

I'll tell you: One (1).

Of their 10 losses this season, 6 have come via the Rays. This time, it was Chris Archer - again - going 7 full and giving up only two hits.

Jose Reyes, still bugged by that strained rib, sat out. As did Jose Batista, for the 4th game. And there's no doubt they're also missing Navarro's bat.

On to Beantown tonight and hope for a little better luck. Bautista may be able to DH.

Jays 5 @ Bosox 6

The kids in the pen let another one slip away, giving up the tying run in the 8th and winner in the 9th.

But you're not going to win too-too many games with the meat of your batting order hitting like this:

#3- Bautista .170
#4 - Encarnacion .173
#5 - Martin .182

They'll get it going. (Hopefully sooner than later.)

I was there for the Saturday game. Norris really pitched good. Didn't see Sunday's at all, but figured the way they lost Saturday + combined with the fact playing in the house of horrors known as Tropicana Field, the game was gonna be over before it started. And didn't see yesterday's at all either, but from the scoreboard it looked like another bullpen implosion.

Jays 11 @ Bosox 8

Finally, some consistency from the middle of the order, with Bautista, Encarnacion and Martin contributing with their bats.

Away for a couple more days, so reports will be sketchy.

Jays 1 @ Bosox 4

RA Dickey was pretty good.

Rick Porcello was excellent.

Jays 5 @ Indians 1

Despite another erratic start from one of the kids, this time Daniel Norris, the Jays managed to make a 4th-inning 5-spot stand up.

Norris didn't allow a run but was in constant trouble. Gibby pulled him after 3 innings and 78 pitches. Jeff Francis got the win with a couple of good innings and Osuna, Loup and Cecil finished up.

Jays 4 @ Indians 9

Mark Buehrle didn't have have his A game.

Or his B game.

And his C game wasn't good enough.

The Tribe rode dingers from Kipnis, Bradley and Hayes to win an easy one. Carrasco went 6 for the Indians to get the win.

Jays sent Daniel Norris to Buffalo. Devon Travis sat out with a sore shoulder. Bautista still can't play in the outfield, meaning Edwin has to play 1st to keep his bat in the lineup. Which means Smoak doesn't get any playing time.

I suppose I should be happy they're at least treading water.

Jays 11 @ Indians 4

Jays had their Kluber clobbering shoes on which helped an erratic Aaron Sanchez to his 2nd win of the season, despite issuing 6 walks in his 5.2 innings. Loser Corey Kluber, last year's Cy Young winner, is still looking for his first win this season.

Jays got some damage done from the middle of their order with Bautista, Encarnacion and Martin combining for 7 hits and 7 RBIs. All three are finally hitting over .200 - if barely.

Jays sent the 2nd of their season-starting six rookies back to Buffalo - Dalton Pompey. He'll benefit from some time there but barring injury, I'll be surprised if he's not back sometime next month. Jays called up another rookie, right-hander Scott Copeland, who'll work out of the bullpen while Estrada starts in place of Daniel Norris.

Jays will finish this tough, 10-game road trip this afternoon, with a chance to finish it at .500 if they win today.

Jays 7 @ Indians 10

Jays staked starter Drew Hutchison a 6-1 lead in the 4th and he couldn't hold it through 5. Although reliever Jeff Francis took the L, Hutchison probably deserved it.

He was the "young arm" nobody was worried about this season. But yesterday marked the 4th time in this short season he was unable to get through the 5th.

Jays limp home to face the 1st-place Yankees with no Reyes, no Navarro, no Bautista in the field and a pitching staff that sucks.

Saying "it's only May" isn't going to cut it much longer.
