When you send Chase Anderson out to take on Jacob deGrom you probably shouldn’t expect much, but that… That was something else.
Things worth mentioning…
- When you lose 18-1, there isn’t much to talk about! Vlad Jr. smashed one of the hardest-hit singles you’ll ever see in the first inning off of deGrom to give the Jays a 1-0 lead and then it was pretty much all downhill from there.

- And then there was the pitching, which was mostly terrible. Chase Anderson was junk, Anthony Kay couldn’t throw a strike, and Jacob Waguespack wasn’t much better as a mop-up guy. Ryan Borucki tossed a scoreless frame and then Ken Giles made his first appearance since all the way back in July. Giles allowed a solo homer on the first pitch he threw, but settled down and picked up two strikeouts, sitting around 94 miles-per-hour on his heater.
- And then, finally, this happened…

- Santiago Espinal came in and allowed only one run. Not bad!
- One other thing worth showing is this absolutely horrendous sequence in which Danny Jansen dropped what could have been a potential triple-ball earlier in the game when Anthony Kay was pitching. The Jays have made a lot of really bad plays this season, but this might be the worst one. OOF.
