After a bad series against the Minnesota Twins, the Toronto Blue Jays bounced back and took two out of three games against the Cleveland Indians this past weekend.
The Jays won the first game 3-2. Melky Cabrera had a good day at the plate, going four for five.
Despite giving up eight hits, Jay’s pitcher, Drew Hutchison had a good day on the mound. Hutchison gave up just two earned runs, no walks, and struck out nine batters in 5.1 innings pitched.
The Jays shut out the Indians in the second game 5-0. Wow!
Dioner Navarro went two for at the plate and collected three RBIs.
Mark Buehrle pitched another gem. Buehrle gave up just four hits, no earned runs, three walks, and struck out three batters in seven innings pitched.
Unfortunately, Toronto, again, was unable to complete the sweep as Cleveland won the rubber match 6-4.
Despite the loss, pitcher, Brandon Morrow had a good outing on the mound. Morrow gave up just three hits, two earned runs, two walks, and struck out six batters in five innings pitched.
What I find encouraging about this series against the Indians is that all three starting pitchers for the Blue Jays lasted five innings. That’s the pitching Toronto needs to be successful this season.
I have some news items to pass along.
Guess who’s back? That’s right, Jose Reyes.
The Blue Jays activated Reyes from the 15-day disabled list.
With Reyes back in the line up, Toronto decided to option fan favorite, Munenori Kawasaki to the Minor Leagues.
Adam Lind was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a sore lower back. In order to fill Lind’s spot in the Jay’s roster, the team purchased the contract of Juan Francisco.
After having the day off yesterday, the Blue Jays are hosting the Baltimore Orioles in a three game series starting tonight.
