Walk off win!
Biagini has thrown 9+ shut out innings as a starter. Stroman and Estrada continue to pitch well. Bautista has seemed to regain his home run stroke. Bullpen has provided some solid relief innings. Pillar batting over .300. Jays have won four straight and are 5 games under .500. Things are turning around in May, but it was quite a big hole they've had to dig themselves out of. But hey, they're only 3.5 games out of a wild card position.
Yeah not bad! Won 4 games in a row with all those key players on the DL!
If the Jays continue winning, then it might erase their seven-game cold streak last month.
They've definitely made progress, the problem is they can't really afford to go on any long losing streaks. The margin for error is tiny.
I was at the game tonight. It was brutal. Left after 5.
Fwiw, things didn't get fully out of hand until the 6th.
Weren't able to recover vs the Braves after a rough start by Biagini. Third loss in a row against a club with less wins than us.
and now if a full on publicity nightmare due to Kevin Pillar's use of a homophobic term being caught on camera!
Blue Jays' Kevin Pillar suspended two games for homophobic slur
The Jays now have as many as seven key players inactive: six due to physical injuries and one due to a slip of the tongue.
Homophobia is never condoned.
Teherán intentionally threw a pitch at Bautista's thigh as revenge for the bat flip. However, it backfired extremely hard, as the next few batters had successful hits.
Oh, and Marcus Stroman homered: http://m.bluejays.mlb.com/news/article/231100130/blue-jays-pitcher-marcus-stroman-hits-home-run/
A good game, yesterday, but another loss tonight against Baltimore.
Outfielder, Anthony Alford called up to the majors.
