Blue Jays 15 Orioles 2

I'm not doing a guys saw it. Marcus Stroman was unhittable. Our offense was great. And the Orioles helped out by not being able to field.

Some quick points:

  • 8 innings of 1 run ball from Marcus amazing has he been. He's gone through so much he deserves this.
  • We had 15 runs, 18 hits, 10 walks.
  • Ryan Goins was 5 for 5 with a double and a beauty of a bunt single.
  • Revere, Donaldson, and Pillar had 2 hits each.
  • Encarnacion hit his 37th home run, getting RBI 107 and 108.
  • Home runs from Bautista and Smoak in the top of the 9th.
The GameThread for game two has to go up in just a few minutes, so I'm going to end it here and the new GameThread will go

Give a JoD to all the players, to Gibby and to Alex. And let's take one each for ourselves.

It is time to go open a bottle of something with bubbles and toast this team and this team's fans.

And, of course, all of us here. I'm incredibly blessed to get to be on this site. Thanks everyone and enjoy this. It has been a long time coming.

I'll add the leader's board later.
