Things to Know:
- Joe Smith is on the DL because of course…
- Estrada again was NOT AcEstrada and it makes me sad. He gave up 6 runs in 7 hits and 4 walks.
- José Bautista has again confirmed that he feeds on Rangers tears when in the 4th inning he hit a HR against Rangers starter Austin Bibens-Dirkx.
- Best part of the game has to be the ninth inning though when the Jays down one run faced Rangers closer Matt Bush, yup this Matt Bush, and this Matt Bush. The first batter up was Goins, who miraculously hit a “double” of him. Josh “MVP” Donaldson then knocked Goins in to tie the game. But the Jays had no plans in staying late so Morales hit an RBI single to take the lead.
- The pen was amazing. Special shout out to Loup who came in the 5th with bases loaded and only 1 out and the top of the order up. He managed to strike out Choo and then got Andrus to ground out. He would then come in the next inning facing the middle of the order but got them out in order. Loup was getting lucky in the beginning of the season but my god these last outings he just has been great.
- Also nice to see Grilli have a nice inning as well. He was facing the bottom half of the order but it was 1 run game and he got his guys in order as well.
Justin Smoak, now has tied his career high in home runs (20), and it’s June 19.
It’s strange, but this HR is sweeter than usual.
I think Pearce likes his bases clearing double.
Agh! You adorable man!
But please! Pitch better!
Darwin Barney, the shoulder you cry on.
