Third baseman, Brett Lawrie a had good series against the Baltimore Orioles this past week. Unfortunately. his Toronto Blue Jays lost two out of three games.
The Blue Jays hammered the Orioles in the first game 9-3.
Juan Francisco went two for four at the plate and Lawrie racked up three RBIs.
“Brett (Lawrie) has has got us some big hits this year,” said Blue Jay’s manager, John Gibbons in the post game press conference.
Lawrie collected a total of six RBIs in the series
Jay’s starting pitcher, R.A. Dickey, gave up six hits, just three earned runs, three walks, and struck out six batters in six innings pitched.
The Jays lost the second game 10-8. Lawrie went three for five at the plate and racked up another three RBIs.
Pitcher, Dustin McGowan pitched just four innings, gave up five hits, six earned runs, a walk, and struck out five batters.
“We battled,” said Gibbons, “The game just got away from us.”
The bullpen hurt the Jays in the third game. Drew Hutchison pitched a good game in a 11-4 Blue Jay loss. Hutchison gave up six hits, just two earned runs, a walk, and struck out nine batters.
“The game got away (from the Jays) late,” said Gibbons
Despite the bad performance by the bullpen, Gibbons feels it is too early to point fingers. “I’m not worried about the bullpen,” he said.
Colby Rasmus got two RBIs during the game.
The Blue Jays have claimed outfielder, Dann Mastroinni from the Minnesota Twins and optioned him to Triple-Buffalo.
There is a good possibility that the Blue Jays are going to go to a six-man rotation inn May. J.A. Happ is the guy the Jays are probably going to add to the rotation. I’m hoping the team adds Happ. There’s a possibility Happ is going make the Jay’s pitching rotation better.
Time will tell.
