Jays score 7 in the 9th inning and beat the Rays

Rays 8 Blue Jays 9 So that was an amazing 9th inning. We scored 7 runs. I still don’t really believe it. Justin Smoak hit the game winning home run.

GameThread Game #153: Rays at Blue Jays

10 games to go It’s the first game of the final homestand, and almost certainly John Gibbons’ final homestand as Blue Jays manager. Here are the lineups for tonight.

Rays (85-66) vs Blue Jays (69-83) After a long road trip, the Jays head home to welcome the Rays into town to open a 4 game series, the second last home series and final homestand of the this __________ 2018 season. Tonight’s game gets underway at 7:07 ET. Blue Jays’ Starter I seemingly didn’t realize there was a game today when yesterday I mentioned Gaviglio was pushed until Friday. But Sam Gaviglio is indeed starting today. Sammy G makes his 22nd start for the Blue Jays, the second most on the team (oy). He is 3-8 with a 5.25 ERA, although FIP has liked his work a bit more than...
