Blue Jays 6 Tigers 2

The Jays got off to a quick starts against Jordan Zimmerman, scoring 5 in the second inning.

T.J. House was hit in the head with a line drive. He was down for a long time. I hope he’s OK. He was down for at least 15 minutes, before they put him on a stretcher and put him in an ambulance.

They called the game after House was taken to the hospital, with 2 outs left in the game.


  • Casey Lawrence: 3 innings, 2 hits, 2 walks, 4 strikeouts. He had a couple of double plays turned behind him. He gave up a walk and a single to start the bottom of the 2nd inning, after sitting for half an hour while the Jays scored 5, but got out of the inning with a double play and a strikeout. Wilner was really talking him up.
  • Bo Schultz: 1 inning, 1 walk, 1 k. A good appearance after he had a rough time in his last appearance.
  • Aaron Loup: 1 inning, allowed a leadoff double but then got out of the inning with a strikeout, ground out, fly out.
  • Ryan Tepera: 1 inning, allowed a single and a 2-run homer. Got a strikeout.
  • Mike Bolsinger: 1.1 innings, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts. Good appearance after his last time out there was pretty terrible.
  • Matt Dermody: Got 2 outs, both lefties, had a strikeot.


  • Ezequiel Carrera: 0 for 4, k. Hitting .286.
  • Steve Pearce: 1 for 3, walk, double, k. .333.
  • Justin Smoak: 0 for 2, walk, k. .105.
  • Anthony Alford: 1 for 3, double, k. .217.
  • Darrell Ceciliani: 1 for 3, double, k. .261.
  • Jake Elmore: 2 for 3, double. .318.
  • Richard Urena: 1 for 3. .381. He had one misadventure in the field. He was going back for a popup and, I guess, thought he was called off, but he wasn’t and the ball fell for a hit.
  • Jon Berti: 2 for 3, .364.
  • Juan Graterol: 1 for 3, k. .267.
