Tom Dakers and I are at a bar in Calgary to watch this game some fellow Blue Jays fans. I may have had a few drinks.
The Jays dug themselves in a hole early on when Jaime García gave up a grand slam in the second inning. I think it came after a misplay by Teoscar Hernández? The table concurs, but we don’t really remember.
Luke Maile had two runs batted in, and I think he deserves a write-in vote for the All-Star Game. Yangervis Solarte also drove in a couple of runs on a ground rule double so vote for him too, I guess.
We had a lot of wings and beer.
García had another bad outing and that may have been his last outing as a Toronto Blue Jay—although the club seems to be quite patient for him. Ryan Borucki threw a seven-inning complete game shutout, giving up just three hits and a walk for the Bisons and he just happens to be pitching on the same day as García.
Joe Biagini finally had a clean outing, which was nice, because he has always looked sad this year. Danny Barnes, Preston Guilmet, and Aaron Loup also appeared in the game but I don’t think they really did that well.
Jays of the Day! None. I’ll give honorary JotD to all who came out to the bar tonight.
Suckage Jays: Jaime García (-.330 WPA), Aledmys Diaz (-.122).
