The Toronto Blue Jays had a strong showing Friday night closing out a tight game against the Minnesota Twins, but dropped game two Saturday afternoon.
While the Jays tried to surmount a late rally in the game they were unable to score as much as they needed too. Bo Bichette had a tremendous day and unfortunately for the Jays, Kevin Kiermaier was forced out of the game with some discomfort in his back.
He’ll be out of the lineup Sunday afternoon as Jose Berrios looks to lead the Jays to victory and a series win.
