Just a reminder, I’m letting the game make all the decisions, I’m just watching it, like it was real MLB baseball.
Before the start of the Jays second game of the season there was a little bit of news (sim news):
- Daniel Hudson of the Nationals “suffered a torn labrum” and is out for the year.
And Blue Jays transaction news:
- Trent Thornton was sent to Buffalo and Brian Moran was called up. I don’t know why, I guess the game decided they needed 2 lefties in the pen.

Nate Pearson made the start in the Jays second game of the season and he was good. He went 5 innings, allowed 3 hits, had 2 earned, 2 walks and 6 strikeouts.
Three relievers pitched for the Jays:
- Sam Gaviglio: 2.1 innings, 1 hit, 4 k.
- Moran: 1.1, 3 k.
- Chase Anderson: 0.1, 1 hit, 1 k.
Nate gave up his 2 earned runs before getting an out. Jose Peraza singled, stole second and then J.D. Martinez homered.
Their lead didn’t last long. Nathan Eovaldi got two quick outs and then:
- Vlad lined a single.
- Randal Grichuk beat out an infield single.
- Travis Shaw walked.
- And Lourdes Gurriel hit a grand slam.
Bottom of the second:
Bo Bichette hits a solo homer making hit 5-2.
Top of the fifth:
Pearson had the first two batters reach on a single (Moreland) and hit batter (Vazquez). A ground ball put runners on second and third, but Nate got back-to-back strikeouts of Martinez and Devers.
Bottom of the eight:
Vlad led off with a walk but Grichuk hit into a double play. Then Shaw walks, Gurriel was hit by pitch and Derek Fisher drives both home with a double.
Jays of the Day: Gurriel (2 for 4, grand slam), Pearson (getting a win in his first MLB start) and Gaviglio (2.1 innings just 1 base runner).
28,663 fans came out to Rogers Centre (with the roof closed) a dip from the 42,217 on opening day.
Two games in, Jays have two wins, putting them first in the AL East (half game up on the 1-0 Yankees).
Tomorrow Matt Shoemaker gets his first start of the season. Martin Perez starts for the Red Sox.
