The Toronto Blue Jays had their winning streak snapped. They finished their four-game home series with the Baltimore Orioles with a 1-3 record.
TORONTO (AP) – The Toronto Blue Jays fell 1-6 in a four-game home series against the Baltimore Orioles at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on Thursday.
The bats were silent. Baltimore starter Jack Flaherty was held to one run in six innings. Toronto starter Kevin Gausman allowed three runs on eight hits and six walks with two strikeouts in 4 1/3 innings for his sixth loss of the season.
Toronto, which went 2-4 on the first day, was swept 3-13 on the second day in Hyun-jin Ryu’s return. The previous day, the Jays had snapped a three-game losing streak dating back to a 2-3 loss to the Los Angeles Angels on March 31 with a six-inning, one-run performance by Yusei Kikuchi.
Toronto put runners on first and third with one out in the top of the second after back-to-back singles to Ryan Mountcastle and Adam Frazier. They then gave up an RBI single to left field to Austin Hayes.
The crisis continued. He gave up a walk to Ramon Urias to load the bases and looked to get out of the jam when he struck out Ryan McKenna on a wild pitch, but gave up a single to left to Adley Rutchman to make it 0-2.
Gaussman retired the next two batters without allowing another run before giving up a leadoff single to Kerner Henderson in the top of the fifth. He retired Anthony Santander on a swinging strikeout and gave up a single to right to Ryan O’Hearn.바카라사이트
Bowden Francis, who came on for the second pitch, gave up a sacrifice fly to Moundcastle to make it 0-3.
Toronto got on the board in the bottom of the sixth after back-to-back singles by Kevin Kiermaier and Merrifield put runners on first and second with no outs, and after Brandon Belt flied out to right field, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. singled through the right side. That would be all the scoring for Toronto.
After scoring one more run in the eighth and two in the ninth, Toronto got Alejandro Kirk to fly out to center field with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, but Caban Vizio threw him out at home plate to end the game.
