Things to Know:
- Estrada shows why every GIF of him is tagged with #MyNumberOne. He had runners on base for a couple of innings, giving up 7 hits in 7 IP. But he managed to wiggle around all them for the most part. He did five up 1 run after an RBI single by Aaron Judge (who was showered/drowned with praises all game). But he managed to walk no one and strike out five.
- It’s no longer April and my god was it obvious. The game saw 3 home runs courtesy of: Goins, Coghlan, and Bautista that would account for 5 of the 7 runs scored by the Jays.
- The 2 runs not scored on a HR was from a sac fly to deep centre… and it was from the same sac fly. I didn’t GIF it, I don’t know why but here a video of it just in case you missed, it was so weird to see that I really need to have witnessed it:
- Barnes pitched the last 2 innings and did an amazing job. Things got a little hairy after he walked Jacoby Ellsbury and an error allowed Greg Bird to reach but he manage to close out the game and ensure Estrada’s first W.
Goins 2 run home run.
