Well, that's the perfect game...a Jays win, with a ton of issues to talk about. Unfortunately, I have supper waiting so I can't talk about them all.
Good news...Jays bats were great (at least for the first 3 innings).
We had 12 hits, 5 walks and 3 homers.
It started off perfect. Ben Revere put down a great bunt single and Josh Donaldson followed with a home run. Then a Colabello home run put us up 3-0, before the Rangers had their first at bat.
Second inning: Kevin Pillar hits a solo homer.
Third inning: Donaldson walk, Jose Bautista double followed by a Edwin Encarnacion ground out (Bautista tried to go second to third but Elvis Andrus decoyed him and got him at third), scoring Josh. Colabello doubled bringing home another. A Russell Martin walk and a Pillar single and we were up 7-1.
One more run in the seventh got us to 8.
RA Dickey picked 4.2 innings, allowed 5 hits, 0 walks, 3 strikeouts, with 1 earned. And with a runner on first and 2 out in the 5th and Gibby brought in David Price. I would have left Dickey in for at least another batter, with a 6 run lead.
David Price went 3 innings, threw 50 pitches. Allowed 6 hits, 3 earned, with 2 strikeouts. He came out of the game with 2 on and Aaron Sanchez got the last out of the 8th, with a nice strikeout.
Roberto Osuna pitched a very quick 9th.
Jays of the Day: Donaldson (.159), Colabello (.108) and Pillar (.092).
No suckage Jays.
Bring on Game 5.
