Jays hope to take another step in recovery vs. Mariners

  • Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Darwin Barney catches a foul ball off the bat of Cleveland Indians third baseman Jose Ramirez during seventh inning baseball action in Toronto on Wednesday

Last season when Justin Smoak strode to the plate Toronto Blue Jays fans felt like they knew what to expect.

The woes of the Seattle Mariners, however, show no signs of letting up.

Diamondbacks 2, Pirates 1: Zack Greinke's bid for his first career no-hitter was thwarted by Pittsburgh's Gregory Polanco's leadoff home run in the eighth inning, but Arizona held on to win.

It's also the number of runs the M's have scored, both coming on Nelson Cruz' two-run homer in the first inning of Thursday's game.

In addition to taking victim of 60 percent of the club's starting rotation, the disabled list is now home to $85.81 million of Toronto's $163.3 million Opening Day payroll.

"He's not missing the balls he's been fouling off", manager John Gibbons said. "He's not swinging out of the zone, he's getting strikes to hit". Balls are starting to leave the ball park. "Our bats. As good as we were going the last couple of games at home, and then picked it up in Philly...we just didn't have that (production)". But once Cleveland took a three-run lead, it was at that point I chose to take a break from the game to better myself and get some exercise.

"It was never a lack of confidence", he said. "But through a tough stretch, everybody starts pressing". Reliever Dan Otero could not hold the reclaimed lead, surrendering an Ezequiel Carrera homer after Darwin Barney had hustled out a double to knot the game at seven. He allowed four hits and had three strikeouts. "But something clicks inside and for some reason their timing lines up right".

It's the first time this season that Toronto has won consecutive series.

Kevin Pillar rocked a hanging two-out slider from Edwin Diaz in the ninth inning for a no-doubt homer that lifted the Toronto Blue Jays to a 3-2 victory and a sweep of their four-game series against the Mariners.

"He shut us down tonight", Mariners manager Scott Servais said. "It happens. It goes back and forth a little bit". Biagini allowed four hits and didn't walk a batter as Toronto extended its winning streak to three games. There is no guarantee that Cano, who has been hot with the bat, will be able to play Saturday.

"I mean, yeah, but can we keep this about the game?" said the big righthander when asked about bleeding. "That's part of it".

Stroman will be trying for his second straight win on Saturday when he faces the Mariners for the first time in his career.

Yes, the Mariners would normally prefer six or more innings from their starting pitcher but, these days, they'll take five zeroes. He had only one strikeout but did induce three double-play grounders.

Dyson gave Seattle its first lead of the game in the top of the sixth, singling to shallow centre field to drive Danny Valencia in from second.

It was the second start of the season for the right-hander, who has yet to give up an earned run since joining the injury-plagued rotation. A roster move will be necessary because Weber has been pitching all season at Triple-A Tacoma, where he is 2-0 with a 0.85 ERA in six games (five starts).

It was the third time this season Seattle had been shut out, and the first since April 18. Kevin Pillar picked up another 3 hits, going 3-4 with an RBI and 2 runs scored.

Morales answered for the Blue Jays, smashing a pitch over the right-field wall and bringing the 42,346 in attendance to their feet. The Mariners claimed right-hander Casey Lawrence off waivers Thursday.
