Blue Jays bats continue to boom against Reds

Blue Jays bats continue to boom against Reds

A 5-4 win over the Cincinnati Reds at Rogers Centre on Wednesday afternoon, to complete a three-game sweep of the National League club, has not altered that belief.

It was one of four Toronto homers on the night.

During the 2016 season, no matter how bad your team's bullpen was, you could always say, "Hey, at least we're not the Reds". He has not lost since a home defeat to Boston on April 18.

"The back issues are behind him and he's physically stronger this year", Walker said. "It was one of those nights where everybody did something good". Rene Rivera and Michael Conforto each hit an RBI double during a three-run fifth against starter Matt Garza (2-2).

Sanchez has been relegated to the disabled list three times this season already, dealing with that nagging middle finger on his throwing hand and the blisters that won't seem to go away.

"I got a good pitch to hit and put a good swing on it and kind of broke the game open", Tulowitzki said. It was Votto's 14th of the season and came after another first-inning blast the night before.

"I think each and every day our guys get more confidence because of the way we've been playing". "He was behind a lot".

Buffalo has seen its team earned-run average rise from fourth in the International League to 11th over the past two weeks. Ignoring the starters, there's still some obvious regression opportunities: Iglesias will probably allow runs at some point, and Storen might recapture the form that made Jays fans groan whenever he started to get loose in the bullpen.

Hamilton stole second then was gunned out at third by Martin, a huge play given the score. Votto was presented with the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame's Tip O'Neill Award before the game. There were even pitches I went back and watched and I threw it right to Meso's (catcher Devin Mesoraco) glove and they hit them too. It was the sixth straight game in which the Reds have scored in the first inning, something they last accomplished from August 25-30, 1999. He has 16 doubles and an ML-leading 19 extra-base hits in May.

The Blue Jays have won six straight interleague games and improved to 15-12 at Rogers Centre this season.

In an agreed statement of facts presented in court on Tuesday, Ken Pagan admitted tossing a can of beer on the field as a Baltimore Orioles player was about to catch a fly ball during the seventh inning of the pivotal wild card game in Toronto. LHP Tony Cingrani (right oblique) pitched a hitless inning at Class-A Dayton. They have had to use the DL only six times, and among key players, only Aroldis Chapman (left shoulder) and Jacoby Ellsbury (concussion, but eligible to come back Thursday) are on the DL now.

"It's been tough, obviously", said Estrada, whose next start is Thursday's opener of a big four-game weekend home series against the New York Yankees.

Add in Stroman, who has got the "W" in his past five decisions and has a 2.96 ERA over his past eight games, and you have two starters who have been crucial to keeping the Jays in the scent. The Reds recalled right-hander Jackson Stephens from triple-A Louisville before the game and optioned Robert Stephenson to the Bats.

Left-hander J.A. Happ returned from an elbow injury to pitch four innings for the Blue Jays, who welcomed All-Stars Donaldson and Troy Tulowitzki back from the disabled list last week.
