Blue Jays notebook: Toronto falls to Cubs in extra innings

21 Août, 2017, 09:17 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier
  • The Blue Jays have hung on to the likes of pitcher Marco Estrada so far avoiding a major rebuild. But if management is concerned fans will balk at a rebuild they may be misreading their supporters

It was quite a day for catchers. Kevin Pillar followed with an RBI single to cut the Chicago lead to 4-3.

Avila lined a hit to right with the bases loaded off Roberto Osuna (3-4) to drive in Ben Zobrist and Javier Baez.

Quintana got out of a bases loaded jam in the second inning when he struck out Tepesch.

"I think that the big challenge is knowing your pitching staff", Rivera said when asked about joining a first-place team in late August, "and that's one thing that I'm going to work hard to get to know everybody, get the trust of everybody and go from there". "You feel like it's your fault. I didn't get my body in the best position to turn and throw to first".

Lopez said, "You just have to be ready like any other pitcher". Just learn from it. With no outs and runners on first and second, Hendricks popped up a bunt that landed in front of a charging Marco Estrada, and the pitcher made an errant throw to first.

Osuna, however, was handed his eighth blown save of the year.

Just their luck that just after Quintana got traded out of the American League, they find him back on the mound during their first visit to Wrigley Field in 12 years. "There's no doubt about it", Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said.

With the score tied at three, Pillar went full speed into the ivy at Wrigley Field, slamming into the unforgiving wall that stands behind it.

The Cubs answered with three runs in the second aided by Happ's mental mistake. Kyle Hendricks allowed three runs and six hits in six innings.

"It's an honor for me to be here (with) a team he loved so much and now I play for", said Rivera, who singled and scored on Almora's double. "We do not quit".

Alex Avila hit a walkoff two-run single in the bottom of the 10th inning as the Cubs defeated the Blue Jays 6-5 on Sunday at Wrigley Field. After Jose Bautista flied out to begin the sixth, Montero drove Hendricks' next pitch over the wall in left-center. "Some guys see him well and some guys just don't pick up the ball off him, and he's got command of both sides of the plate". He's a good hitter. To fill the two roster spots, LHP Rob Zastryzny and RHP Felix Pena were recalled from Triple-A Iowa.

Catcher Rene Rivera, claimed off waivers from the Mets on Saturday, is in the lineup, though. He used to watch the Cubs play with his grandfather when he was growing up in Puerto Rico.
