That was awful: Jays lose in extras

That was awful: Jays lose in extras

Blue Jays 5 Cubs 6 (10 innings) The top of 10th inning was fun. Josh Donaldson started things off with an infield single, just off the glove of Javier Baez. It’s about time we got a late inning hit past him. After a Justin Smoak fly out, Jose Bautista was intentionally walked (Josh moved up to second on a bad throw from Cubs catcher Alex Avila). After a Darwin Barney fly out, Kevin Pillar hit a hard single to right and Josh just beat the throw to the plate (with a nice slide). I like Pillar so much better when he’s hitting. The fun continued when Koji Uehara walked Ryan Goins (his...

Homers by Donaldson (2) and Smoak help Jays beat Rays

Homers by Donaldson (2) and Smoak help Jays beat Rays

Rays 3 Blue Jays 5 Justin Smoak has been so good. I’m afraid I scared my neighbors cheering his homer. Chris Rowley was interesting to watch. He was having a hard time staying in the strike zone, gave up 5 walks in 5 innings, but didn’t give up many hard hit balls. 5 walks and 4 hits, in 5 innings should have added up to more than 2 runs, but he got the outs when he needed them. It wasn’t as impressive as his last start, but he kept us in the game, which is nice to see from someone I didn’t expect to see pitch for the Jays this year. He was helped out by some crappy Rays base...

Blue Jays 8, White Sox 4: A Mike Pelfrey start

Blue Jays 8, White Sox 4: A Mike Pelfrey start

Game slips away in middle innings Until the White Sox call up one or more of their pitching prospects to take starts from veterans who don’t have much to show, this is likely to be the best outcome — a loss, but with points of interest along the way. Mike Pelfrey gave the Sox more innings than he had since the middle of June, but it came at a cost. He gave up a tie-breaking homer to Justin Smoak on a grooved two-seamer in the fifth inning, then watched Gregory Infante allow both of his inherited runners to score in the sixth. Just like that, a 2-2 game turned into a 7-2 game, leaving...

Walk-Off Grand Slam by Steve Pearce, Jays Sweep A’s

Walk-Off Grand Slam by Steve Pearce, Jays Sweep A’s

A’s 4 Blue Jays 7 (10 innings) Second day in a row we get a game tying home run in the 9th and, soon after, a game winning home run (but this time we had to wait more than a minute between the two homers). In the 10th Liam Hendriks had troubles finding the strike zone. He walked the bases loaded (Miguel Montero, Justin Smoak and Kendrys Morales each took walks). Steve Pearce came to bat with 2 outs. He went to a full count and then got the batting practice fastball and took it out of the park. The ninth inning has been a fun time, at least for the last couple of days. Today, Kendrys...

Jays Walk-Off A’s

Jays Walk-Off A’s

Justin Smoak and Kendrys Morales homer in the 9th. A’s 2 Blue Jays 3 Wow. After doing nothing offensively for 8 innings, we score 3 in the bottom of the 9th to get our 3rd straight win. In the bottom of the 9th, A’s closer Santiago Casilla started things off with a walk to Josh Donaldson. Then Justin Smoak crushed the game tying homer. I was still cheering that (sorry neighbors) when Kendrys Morales hit the game winner. We haven’t had an ending that good in a long long time. Marco Estrada looked good. It’s too bad we couldn’t score for him. He had a rough first inning,...
