Red Sox 5, Blue Jays 2: *Sigh*

Following a hectic opener on Friday which saw Luke Maile hit 2 home runs in the same game, the Jays ended up on the losing end of things on Saturday.

 

Things worth mentioning…

  • Going 6 innings today, Marco Estrada allowed 4 runs on 7 hits to a Red Sox Team that has the best record in the league. With the way the starting rotation has been performing recently, 4 runs over 6 innings is a decent start but the rotation will need to be better down the stretch.
  • A base hit by Anthony Alford drove in the first run of his MLB career today in the 4th inning.

  • Russ Martin got the start at 3rd base today, but was quiet at the plate, striking out twice and getting on base once from a walk.
  • Gio Urshela made his Blue Jays debut today, starting at shortstop and hitting 9th in the order. He picked up his first hit and RBI in a Toronto uniform in the third inning.

Tommorow the Jays will hope to take the series against the sox at 1:07pm.

    The Jays don’t have the lineup to compete with the skanks and red sux unfortunately. The depth and quality just isn’t there. Solarte, Pillar, tesocar, Smoak have cooled off (not like they have a long history of good performance anyways). I think its time to call up Vlad and hopefully JD bounces back. This lineup is missing an impact bat badly.
