Good trades for the Jays: Mike Bolsinger, Scott Feldman & Francisco Liriano all heading north of the border (well all to Houston actually to report). Shores up the rotation, because with these moves it all but assures Aaron Sanchez is heading to the bullpen in a couple more starts. Neither Bolsinger or Liriano can match Sanchez's production in the rotation so that will take a hit, but the bullpen will gain a great arm in sanchez, so overall I think it's a win.

Jays 1 @ Astros 2 (14)

Another tough extra-inning loss. Pitching was obviously ruling the day.

As to the trades, I'm okay with them. Of course there's huge controversy north of the border regarding shuttling Sanchez off to the pen when right now, he's the best starter in AL. But the tall foreheads in the front office have apparently made up their minds. Not sure how many more starts he'll get, they're mum. But I'm thinking fewer than 3.

I'm guessing by the 15th he'll be in the bullpen, so taking a wild guess I'm saying he's got 2 starts left.

Jays 2 @ Astros 1

R.A. Dickey went 7 strong and solo shots by Bautista and Encarnacion were all the Jays needed to win a squeaker in Houston.

And raise their record in games played in Houston to 3-14.

Yay.

Estrada will try to up the count to 4 tonight.

Jays 3 @ Astros 1

Three solo shots, two by Donaldson and one by Bautista were enough for the Jays to nip the Astros in yet another pitchers' duel. Marco Estrada (7-4) bested Collin McHugh (7-8) in that department.

Toronto has scored six runs in the 3 games so far, all solo shots while striking out a ridiculous number of times - 14 in this game.

Troy Tulowitzki sat out his 3rd game with a chip fracture of his right thumb but hit off a tee and thinks he'll be okay to go in tonight's finale.

Jays 4 @ Astros 1

JA Happ won his 9th consecutive decision and became the AL's 1st 15-game winner as the Jays won their 3rd straight tight one in Texas.

In the process, the Jays set a dubious MLB record, striking out 61 times in the four games. Despite those Ks and scoring only 10 runs in the 4 games, Toronto leaves for KC having won the series. Their starting pitching remains remarkable and the bullpen appears to be rounding into form.

Speaking of starters...the Jays are going with six of them for the time being. Yes, the Sanchez Saga seems resolved, at least for now. Saner heads have prevailed and he is going to continue to start until/if he shows signs of stress/fatigue/whatever.

Notes: Edwin Encarnacion connected for his 30th dinger of the season, his 5th consecutive season of hitting 30 or more. And Troy Tulowitzki returned to action after missing 3 games with bad thumb.

Next up, a 3-gamer in KC starting tonight.

Jays 4 @ Royals 3

Devon Travis hit a pair of home runs, including the winner in the 9th off Kelvin Herrera, as the Jays took the first of three from KC.

Francisco Lariano made his first start for the Jays and did okay, allowing 3 runs, 2 earned, in 6 innings. Brett Cecil picked up the win and Joaquin Benoit his first save in a Toronto uniform.

Aaron Sanchez takes the hill tonight against Danny Duffy in the 2nd game of the series.

Jays 2 @ Royals 4

Danny Duffy (8-1) put an end to Aaron Sanchez' 10-game winning streak as KC took the 2nd game of the series.

Eric Hosmer had 2 hits and 2 RBIs for the Royals. Devon Travis led off the game with a home run, just as he did in the first game.

Marcus Stroman takes the hill for the Jays in this afternoon's finale against Yordano Ventura.

Jays 1 @ Royals 7

Kendrys Morales hit a grand salami and the Jays continued to not hit.

Not often a 4-3 road trip feels lousy but this one did.

Rays 5 @ Jays 7

Devon Travis had the first 4-hit game of his career and Bautista and Encarnacion each had 3 RBIs as the Jays took the first of three from Tampa.

EE hit his 299th career home run, Toronto's 17th consecutive solo shot. Be nice to get one with somebody on....

Joaquin Benoit picked up the win in relief and Roberto Osuna notched his 25th save despite giving a Logan Forsythe bomb in the 9th.

Of note, the Jays put Kevin Pillar on the 15-day DL (thumb) and called up OF Darrell Ceciliani from Buffalo.

Marco Estrada takes the mound tonight against Drew Smyly - who, in 4 games in TO, has a 2-0 record and 0.56 ERA.
