The Toronto Blue Jays won another series this past weekend, taking two out of three games against the Baltimore Orioles.
The Jays shut out the Orioles in the first game 2-0. After having a poor start in his first outing of the season, Dustin McGowan bounced back against Baltimore. McGowan pitched 6.1 innings, giving up five hits, no earned runs, a walk, and struck out two batters.
The second game went 12 innings.
It looked as if Baltimore was going to win the game 1-0. Toronto was down to their last strike when Colby Rasmus hit a solo home run to pushed the game into extra innings. The Orioles won the game in the bottom of the 12th inning 2-1.
Jay’s starting pitcher, Drew Hutchinson gave up just four hits, no earned runs, two walks, and struck out five batters in six innings pitched.
The third game was a different story.
Toronto hammered Baltimore 11-3.
Adam Lind went three for three at the plate. Edwin Encarnacion went three for four and racked up two RBIs. Rasmus also went three for four at the plate.
Both Rasmus and Jose Bautista collected three RBIs during the blow out.
Mark Buehrle increased his win-loss record to 3-0, giving up five hits, an earned run, no walks, and struck out two batters in seven innings pitched.
I have some news to pass along.
Lind is day to day with a lower back injury.
Bad news for Maicer Izturis, There’s a possibility that he is going to miss the rest of the season with a left knee injury. This is also bad for the Blue Jay’s offense. Izturis has been swinging a hot bat lately.
There is some good news for the team too.
It is a possibility that Jose Reyes is going to rejoin the Blue Jay’s line up on Friday.
Steve Delabar’s injury is not serious and won’t be on the disabled list for too long.
Finally, J.A. Happ has been activated from the 15-day disabled list.
