Jays 5 @ Bosox 4

What a weird game.

Marco Estrada takes a no-no into the 8th. Jays only get four hits but they're all dingers. Roberto Osuna comes into a 5-1 game and just about blows it.

But the end result is another series win, Toronto's 5th in a row. In the just-concluded 12-games with the Yankees and Red Sox, the Jays went 9-3.

No complaints from this quarter.

To Detroit tonight for the first meeting with the Tigers this year.

Sometimes you are the bug, and you get squashed by the windshield. Unfortunately, this was one of those games


Also, very sad to see what has happened to Drew Storen. As a Nationals fan I've seen that organization run him over with the bus time and time again, from getting put in a bad spot in the 2012 game 5 NLDS loss to the Cardinals, to signing Rafael Soriano right before the 2013 season to bump Storen out of the closer's role because the GM "wasn't comfortable with him closing" and then once again getting put in a bad spot of a playoff game. This time game 2 of the 2014 NLDS when he was brought in mid inning. The GM still wasn't comfortable with Storen closing in 2014 (after Soriano was a complete disaster in 2014 and actually lost the job back to Storen midseason), but there was either no one available, or they didn't make a good effort so Storen started the 2015 season as a closer. He starts the year as a closer, and on July 28 he has only 2 blown saves on the season (with the Nats winning both of those games in the end anyways) with a 1.80 ish ERA (and take out the time he came in in the 9th of a 16-1 game and gave up 3 runs the ERA's probably closer to 1.00), and with the Nats up 3 games in the division, the Nats traded for Jonathan Papelbon. Storen had 3 quality outings immediately following the trade, but that was the fateful drive of the bus; the bus had driven over him one too many times. He pitched to a 8.49 ERA in August, and a 5.40 ERA in September, and after giving up game-losing home runs to the Mets in September he punched a locker and broke his hand, but he was ruined when the trade for Papelbon was announced.


I was hoping his career would revive in Toronto for an organization that believed in him, but unfortunately his career looks to be on the downward spiral as he hasn't recovered. Btw, the guy traded for Storen (Revere) hasn't done much of anything either, so it's looking like a lose-lose trade for both sides. Revere got injured his second AB of the season, missed the next 5 weeks, and has failed to get back on track. He's currently batting .167 and has yet to see his average get above .200 for the entire season. He's played in 27 games has only 18 hits and has only 7 multi-hit games so far this season. Coming into this season he struck out once every 10 at bats, but this year is striking out once every 8.3 at bats.

Jays 0 @ Tigers 11

Nothing breaks a feeling-pretty-good-about-ourselves bubble like being on the wrong end of a 11-0 spanking.

Nothing to do but fahgeddaboutit and focus on today's game when Aaron Sanchez takes the hill against former Jay Matt Boyd.

Further to Storen: His confidence has to be shaken. Gibby keeps throwing him out there, hoping he'll find himself. He seems a very likable guy, gives good interview without the usual cliches. I hope he gets straightened out.

Jays 2 @ Tigers 3 (10)

This one hurt.

Sanchez takes a 1-hitter and a 2-0 lead into the 9th, having fanned 12 and....

Yuck.

Jays 7 @ Tigers 2

Jays managed some offense for a change and that helped R.A. Dickey to consecutive wins for the first time in a year.

Josh Donaldson homered, tripled and singled. Justin Smoak homered and Kevin Pillar tripled in two runs.

Not gonna get any easier. Baltimore's coming to the 6ix for four, starting tonight.

O's 6 @ Jays 5

Chris Davis broke a tie in the 9th with a sac fly of Roberto Osuna as Baltimore won their 5th in a row.

Hope they don't make it six tonight...

O's 3 @ Jays 4 (10)

Edwin Encarnacion hit a walk-of home run in the 10th to halt the O's winning streak at five.

Michael Saunders also left the yard, as did Chris Davis and Jonathan Schoop for the O's.

J.A. Happ takes the mound this afternoon against Mike Wright.

O's 6 @ Jays 11

Watch out AL, Edwin's heating up....

Encarnacion hit 2 home runs and drove in 5 as the Jays won a slugfest against Baltimore.

Assured of at least a split in this series, Toronto will go for the win this afternoon when Aaron Sanchez takes the hill against Ubaldo Jiminez.

O's 9 @ Jays 10

Not exactly a pitchers' duel. 7 home runs. 5 by the Orioles. O's starter Jimenez knocked out after 1/3 of an inning, having surrendered 5 runs.

The wind was blowing out in the ballpark by the lake. The teams combined for 27 hits. Jason Grilli earned a nailbiter of a save despite loading the bases in the 9th and giving up a sac fly.

A crazy-assed game but ultimately a fun one for Toronto fans.

Jays ended up taking 3 out of 4 from Baltimore and closed the gap between them and 1st place to 2.5 games.

Phillies 7 @ Jays 0

Ryan Howard and Odubel Herrara homered, Jerad Eikhoff pitched six spotless innings to win consecutive starts for the first time this season, and Philadelphia snapped a four-game losing streak by beating the Jays. 7-0 Monday night.

Toronto was flat, coming off an emotional 4-gamer with Baltimore. Hopefully, they'll do better this afternoon.
