Game #136 Preview: Reid-Foley vs Brigham

Blue Jays (61-74) vs Marlins (54-82) The Blue Jays wrap up their 3 game set in Miami, looking to win the series against the Marlins. Today’s game gets underway very shortly, starting at 1:10 ET. Blue Jays’ Starter Sean Reid-Foley returns to the Majors to make his 3rd big league start. He struggled a bit in his first one against the Royals, allowing 3 runs on 6 hits in 5 innings, walking 3 and striking out 3. But it was his start against the Yankees that I’m sure he’d love to forget. In 4.1 innings, he allowed 8 runs (6 earned) on 7 hits and 3 walks. The Yankees touched him up for 3...

Marlins give Home Chen more than enough support in 6-3 win

Marlins give Home Chen more than enough support in 6-3 win

A dominant pitching performance not wasted this time. A carbon copy of the series opener through eight full innings, the Marlins bullpen didn’t squander the lead this time. Wei-Yin Chen mowed down the Blue Jays lineup three times over to continue his remarkable season at home in Saturday’s 6-3 win. Marco Estrada: 4.1 IP, 8 H, 6 ER, 3 BB, 1 K (93 pitches) Wei-Yin Chen: 8.0 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 7 K (107 pitches) The veteran left-hander allowed only two “hard-hit” balls in play—95-plus miles per hour exit velocity—all night. Chen repeatedly pounded the strike zone, getting ahead...

Blue Jays fall to the Jeters

Blue Jays fall to the Jeters

Despite more 9th inning Smoakage Blue Jays 3 Marlins 6 On the plus side, Justin Smoak hit another home run in the 9th inning. Unfortunately, unlike last night the Jays were further down and didn’t have as many runners on, so it’s just a footnote rather than an exclamation mark. Also on the plus side, Taylor Guerrieri and Jose Fernandez had successful major league debuts. Also unfortunately, it matters little to the result of the game as Marco Estrada’s struggles meant the Jays were well out of it. Those are the major takeaways from tonight’s lackluster contest between two bad teams...

Martin Prado, Wei-Yin Chen deliver as Marlins bounce back versus Blue Jays

After suffering a gut-wrenching loss the night before, the Marlins were able to bounce back — thanks in part to some much-needed reinforcements. In his first game off the disabled list, Martín Prado delivered a bases-clearing double in the fifth to help Miami race past the Blue Jays, 6-3. On Friday,...

We have arrived in September. Where did the Summer go? The Blue Jays are playing for the series win after Smoak’s 9th inning heroics last night. Here’s a bit of a deeper look at Demi Orimoloye. Ben Nicholson-Smith spoke to a scout about him as well: Heard from one scout who has seen plenty of Demi Orimoloye and really likes him"Big, physical, can hit for power and run. Very raw but tremendous upside"21-year-old has 12 HR, .713 OPS at Class A this year. #BlueJays got him for Granderson— Ben Nicholson-Smith (@bnicholsonsmith) September 1, 2018 Someone can post the lineups because...
