Tigers 4 @ Jays 3 (11 innings).

Richard Urena singled with 1 out in the 6th, and 2 batters later Danny Jansen singled to move Urena to 3rd. Surprisingly, that was the first time all game a runner had gotten into scoring position, but Brandon Drury struck out. Niko Goodrum lead off the 7th with a double, and moved to 3rd on a Christian Stewart ground out. A walk and a hit by pitch sandwiched around a strikeout would load the bases with 2 outs, and Jordy Mercer had the first RBI of the afternoon with a bases loaded walk, and Jeimer Candelario would bring in 2 with a single, but Nick Castellanos would end the inning with a fly out. Goodrum doubled with 1 out in the 8th, and following an intentional walk to Stewart, John Hicks flied out to right and Mikie Mahtook struck out. Kevin PIllar singled with 1 out in the 8th, Urena doubled him to 3rd, and Rowdy Tellez came up as a pinch hitter and launched his first homer of the year to tie the game at 3. Candelario doubled with 2 outs in the 9th, but Castellanos ended the inning with a ground out. Urena had a 2 out double in the 10th, but got thrown out at home on a Freddy Galvis single. Grayson Greiner singled with 1 out in the 11th, 2 batters later Candelario singled him over to 3, and this time Castellanos came through with a 2 out RBI as his single brought home Greiner. Drury had a 1 out single in the bottom half, Justin Smoak got hit by a pitch, but Randal Grichuck hit into a force out, and Teoscar Hernandez lined out to end the game. Trent Thornton allowed 2 hits, with 0 walks, and a club record 8 strikeouts by a pitcher in his club debut, and the 4th straight Blue Jays starting pitcher that was scoreless upon, and Thomas Pannone (0-1) allowed 1 run on 3 hits, with 0 walks and 0 strikeouts in 1 inning. Elvis Lucciano also made his debut for the Jays with a scoreless 1 1/3 and he became the first player born in the 2000's decade to make the majors. Matt Moore allowed 1 walk, 2 hits, and 6 strikeouts in 7 scoreless, Joe Jimenez (1st blown save) allowed 3 runs on 3 hits (1 homer) with a strikeout in 1 inning, Daniel Stumpf (1-0) allowed 2 hits with a strikeout in 1 inning, and Shane Greene (2nd save) allowed 1 hit in a scoreless inning for his second save in as many chances.

Tigers head down to the Bronx to take on the Yankees in a 3 game series in the Bronx which begins on Monday night. The Jays will continue their season opening 7 game home stand as the Baltimore Orioles come up, ironically, from the Bronx, where they split the first 2 games, and currently lead 5-3 in the 6th after a 3.5 hour rain delay in the Sunday game. David Hess (0-0, 0.00 in a relief outing this weekend) is the scheduled starter for the O's, while Sean Reid-Foley (2-4, 5.13 last year) will take the start of the injured Clayton Richard for the Jays, with first pitch scheduled for 7:07.

Default 2-3

Orioles 6 @ Jays 5.

With 1 out in the first Dwight Smith singled and Jonathan Villar homered to put the O's in front for good 3 batters into the game and ended the Jays SP scoreless inning streak. Trey Mancini singled, Rio Ruiz reached on a fielders choice Freddy Galvis fielding error, and Renato Nunez walked to load the bases. Chris Davis would follow with a bases loaded walk, and Jesus Sucre struck out, but a wild pitch got a 4th run in, before Sean Reid-Foley struck out Richie Martin. Leading off for the second time in the first 2 innings (never good), Cedric Mullins was hit by a pitch, went to 2nd on a Smith ground out, went to 3rd on a Villar single, and scored on a Mancini sac fly. Villar would get to second on a wild pitch, but Ruiz flied out to end that inning. Billy McKinney walked to open the 4th, Brandon Drury and Justin Smoak followed with strikeouts, a wild pitch moved McKinney to second, but David Hess got Randal Crichuck to strike out. Ruiz had a 2 out single in the 5th, moved to 2nd on a wild pitch, but got left there as Nunez flied out. Mancini put the 6th and final run for the Orioles on the board with a 7th inning homer. Smoak had a 1 out walk in the 7th, and Grichuck followed with a 2 run homer to cut the deficit to 6-2, and Galvis would cut the deficit to 6-3 with a solo shot in the 8th. Drury started the 9th with a single, went to 2nd on a Smoak line out, went to 3rd on a Grichuck double, and scored on a Kevin Pillar sac fly. Teoscar Hernandez tripled to make it 6-5, but Lourdes Gurriel struck out with the tying run 90 feet to end it, and quite frankly the Jays had no business with a chance to win that game either, but sometimes its better to be lucky than good. Hess (1-0) had 1 walk and 8 strikeouts in 6 1/3 hitless innings, but since this is only April 1, and he pitched over the weekend O's manager Carlos Hyde took him out of the game having thrown 82 pitches, and Richard Bleier (1st save) allowed 1 run on 2 hits with a strikeout in 1 inning of work. Reid-Foley (0-1) allowed 4 hits and 5 runs (only 3 earned) (1 home run) with 2 walks (1 hit batter) and 3 strikeouts in only 2 innings of work.

Game 2 of the series is on Tuesday: Andrew Cashner (0-1, 13.50) starts for the O's against Marcus Stroman (0-0, 0.00) in a matchup of opening day starters. First pitch slated for 7:07.

Default 11-12

Don't look now, but the Jays just went 6-1 on the road. The pitching has been fine since the start of the season but the bats needed Viagra for the first couple of weeks. Now the bats are coming on and Vladdy Jr. is probably only a week or two away from being called up.

On the down side: Matt Shoemaker (2-0, 1.57 ERA) tore his ACL and is gone for the year. That really sucks. He's had terrible luck with serious injuries and was off to a terrific start.

Also worrisome: Aaron Sanchez left yesterday's game with a torn fingernail on his middle finger. Some may recall he lost most of the 2017 season with similar fingernail problems.

But the plain fact is, most Jays fans expected the team to suck this year. And they're playing good, entertaining ball. I don't expect a playoff spot but I do expect to see competitive ball with some silver linings as the kiddie corps progresses.

Vlad Jr. is scheduled to make his debut Tuesday night. It is against the Giants, so I will be able to catch the game on the tube.

Link? Toronto sports sites don't have this info. They say his call up is still to be determined.

It’s unclear exactly when that will happen, but all signs point to Tuesday’s game against the Giants as the logical date for Guerrero’s debut.

“That’s what I’m hearing, that he’s going to make his debut against us,” manager Bruce Bochy said.

In addition, throughout Sunday's Giants game, the SF announcers talked about how much they were looking forward to seeing Vlad Jr.'s debut when the Giants play the Jays on Tuesday night.

Well then, they know something the Jays broadcasters and media don't. Hope they're right.

Just when we thought it was safe to celebrate the arrival of Vladimir Guerrero Jr. to the big leagues, the Toronto Blue Jays pulled the rug out from under us.

Bob Nightengale of USA Today Sports reported Monday that the Blue Jays will not be promoting Guerrero to the majors on Tuesday, as many expected.

Kuip and Kruk had been promoting this on the Giants Sunday broadcast, so now they will have some 'splain' to do.

Yeah, if it had even had a sniff of being real, the TO media would've been all over it in Stop The Presses! fashion.

The Vladdy Watch has been a Thing since Spring Training.
