The bean ball war with the Yankees last night has gotta be one of the stupidest things a team has done this year. Happ had his one chance and he blew it, much like Shawn Estes did against Roger Clemens 15 years back. Once you have that one chance and you blow it, and then you hit him again you know for a fact Severino is going to come back and hit someone, so at that point once you get plunked take your base and move on with the damn game! Now with the brawl you have your leadoff hitter Devon Travis injuring his shoulder which isn't that terrible with how deep the lineup is, and it only sounds like he'll be out a couple days (he's out of the lineup Tuesday, but hopes to be back Wednesday according to reports). Where I have problems however is with the other Jay that was injured during the brawl, an integral part of the Jays bullpen which has been leaking oil the entire season, especially lately, and has only allowed 1 run since he came over from Seattle: Joakin Benoit tore a calf muscle in said brawl and is likely out for the season. With how terrible & shaky the bridge has been between in the 6th/7th/8th inning between the starters & Osuna in the 9th Benoit was the one consistent and that is a huge loss, if indeed he is out for the rest of the season, and all because of something so useless and completely unnecessary . They would have trouble beating Boston or Texas anyways, but I would've liked their chances of beating Cleveland but with this news they may not even win the Wildcard game.....that is if they even make it there at all with their final 6 games and this news .

Default 87-70

O's 1 @ Jays 5

Ezequiel Carrera, batting lead-off in place of the injured Devon Travis, sparked the Jays by going 2 for 3 with a home run, 2 RBIs and 3 runs scored. Donaldson also homered for Toronto, his 37th. Aaron Sanchez went six for his 14th win, fanning 10 along the way.

No doubt losing Benoit for at least the rest of the regular season is going to hurt. Gotta hope that Travis' shoulder isn't a recurrence of last year's woes.

Francisco Lariano takes the hill in game 2 tonight against Chris Tillman.

O's 3 @ Jays 2

Hyun Soo Kim hit a 2-run pinch-hit home run in the 9th off closer Roberto Osuna to keep Baltimore solidly in the post season hunt. Osuna has blown two of his last three save opportunities - never a good thing.

Marcus Stroman, without a win in his last seven starts goes for Toronto today in the rubber match against Ubaldo Jiminez.

Jays starters have now gone 7 straight games without allowing more than one earned run, a club record.

Terrible last couple of games. Hopefully that wasn't the last time the Rogers Centre faithful saw Joey Bats in a home uniform . Tough close out series in Fenway against the Red Sox who have pounded them for most of the year who just got swept by the Yankees, so they'll be mad. Luckily the Orioles are going into the Bronx to play the Yankees so hopefully they continue playing well. Tigers head to Atlanta to play a Braves team since they acquired Matt Kemp at the trading deadline have actually played very well. The Tigers lose the DH that series also. Mariners seem to have it easy playing the A's but this is the same team that has gotten swept at home this year by the 57-102 Twins and the 72-87 Angels, so anything's possible with them. I think Baltimore & Detroit are losing at least once this weekend, so hopefully the Jays can take care of business, get some confidence back they've lost the last 9 innings, get the home game in the Wildcard and make a run.

For how terrible they've played here in September they just need to win these next 2 to guarantee themselves a bid, and just need to the Yankees to win 1 of the next 2 to get that game at Rogers Centre. However, it's not looking too good though.

Jays 4 @ Bosox 3

Roberto Osuna blew a save but picked up a win as the Jays broke a tie in the 9th on a sac fly by Ezequiel Carrera.

There's still permutations in the WC race but the win helped solidify a spot for the Jays. A win today would guarantee Toronto would host the WC game.

Aaron Sanchez gets the biggest start of his career against David Price.

To quote the late Al Davis, owner of the Los Angeles & Oakland Raiders as it relates to the Jays today: "Just win, baby!"
