J.A. Happ threw 4.2 innings while allowing 4 runs on 7 hits plus a walk, in what Matt W says was 71 pitches. As Mike Wilner mentioned on the broadcast, he was working on his 2-seamer, and got hit pretty hard a few times. Outside of the two home runs to Sandy Leon, he also allowed 3 doubles and a triple.
On offense, we got strong performances from Justin Smoak (2-3, 2 doubles, 3 RBI), Kevin Pillar (3-3, double, walk!), and Aledmys Diaz (2-4, HR and a single, which will allow us to ignore the 2 double plays).
Speaking of double plays, Curtis Granderson grounded into a routine double play in the second. It went something like this:

I don't know that I've seen anything like that. It was mayhem
Too bad there isn’t video of that one.
Roemon Fields also made an incredible catch that warranted a standing ovation. I’m sure it also was awesome to see.
The rest of the offense:
Curtis Granderson - 1-2, single and a walk
Roemon Fields - 0-0 with a walk
Anthony Alford - 1-4, single. He also had an assist from RF at 3B, with a little help from Smoak.
Dwight Smith Jr. - 1-3, single
Jason Leblebijian - 1-2, single and a walk
Everyone else had some form of an 0-fer.
On the pitching side:
Al Alburquerque - 0.1 innings, 1 HR, 1 ER
Tyler Clippard - 1 inning, 1 hit and 2 strikeouts
Roberto Osuna - 1 inning, 2 hits and 1 strikeout
Aaron Loup - 1 inning, 3 hits, 1 run and 2 strikeouts
Ryan Tepera - 1 inning, 1 hit and 1 walk
Tomorrow the Jays head to Lake Buena Vista to take on the Braves at 1:05 EDT. Aaron Sanchez is scheduled to make that start.
