Jays 5 @ Rays 3

Yep, Marcus Stroman was very good yesterday, going 8 plus and only allowing one run until the 9th. Chris Archer was no slouch, fanning 12 for a Rays Opening Day record. But he was a little shaky in the 1st, allowing two runs on a couple of walks and a couple of opposite-field singles.

Tulowitzki lofted a 2-run shot in the 8th to open a 5-1 lead but Tampa made it closer with a couple in the 9th, including a solo shot from Corey Dickerson.

This evening, R. A. Dickey will face off against Drew Smyly.

Dickey was solid yesterday, but did run into some trouble in the 5th inning and got pulled. The bullpen did an excellent job after that and kept the Rays off the scoreboard. Josh Thole of all people hit a home run (which is unexpected) plus Donaldson and Saunders also hit one. It's good to at least get a split down there because the Jays have historically struggled.

Yep, that about covers it. Pillar made his first highlight reel catch of the season and Kiermaier almost kept Saunders dinger from leaving the yard.

Tonight, it's Aaron Sanchez vs Jake Odorizzi in the 3rd of this 4-game series.

Jays 2 @ Rays 3

The new kinder, gentler, sissified baseball cost the Jays a probable win yesterday. Rather than detail the whole stupid story, I'll link to the particulars.

But as a fan for over 50 years, I'm really disappointed with the direction the game is going. What's next - little participation trophies for the teams not making the playoffs? Fines for not saying "Excuse me" if you bump somebody?

In any event, the stupid ending made for happy Rays fans but spoiled an otherwise great game featuring dynamic pitching from both Aaron Sanchez and Jake Odorizzi.

Jays will try to win the series this afternoon when J. A. Happ takes the hill against Matt Moore.

Jays 3 @ Rays 5

The Toronto pen couldn't hold a 3-2 lead, coughing up a 3-run dinger to Steven Sousa - his 2nd of the game - in the 8th inning.

To make matters worse, 2015 MVP Josh Donaldson took himself out of the game with a strained calf. He deems it minor. Let's hope.

Jays return home for their opener tomorrow against the Red Sox.

I'm sure if Longotia blew out Goin's knee, you BJ fans would scream that MLB needs to enforce the rule protecting infielders........

Red Sox 8 @ Jays 7

Marcus Stroman didn't have his usual stuff and the bullpen couldn't hold a 7-2 lead. Brock Holt and Josh Donaldson traded grand salamis. Brett Cecil blew his 2nd save of the young season.

Which added up to Toronto losing its 5th consecutive home opener.

Yuk.

R.A. Dickey will try to even things up this afternoon.

Red Sox 8 @ Jays 4

Dickey's knuckleball was too erratic, leading to unpleasant adventures. Despite Bautista's first 2 homers of the season, the Jays lose their 4th straight.

Marco Estrada comes off the DL to try to stop the bleeding this afternoon.

Bosox 0 @ Jays 3

Marco Estrada went 7 strong in his first start of the season and Josh Donaldson hit his 4th dinger to put an end to a 4-game slide and salvage a game against the Beantowners.

Jays are off today to prepare for the Yankees coming to town Tuesday.
