There was some post-game roster news:
The Giants have returned Rule 5 pickup Dany Jimenez to the Blue Jays. So the Jays optioned Brian Moran to New Hampshire and added Jimenez to the active roster. Jimenez had a 10.29 ERA in 6 games with the Giants. In 7 innings he allowed 12 hits, 2 homers, no walks with 7 strikeouts. Moran had pitched in 10 games, he has a 7.94 ERA. In 5.2 innings, he allowed 10 hits, 1 homer, 4 walks and 11 strikeouts.
Blue Jays 7 Orioles 5
Tanner Roark got the start he pitched 6 innings, allowed 7 hits, 3 earned, 1 walk with 6 strikeouts. Roark gave up a:
- Solo homer to Adley Rutschman in the third inning.
- Two runs in the fifth. Jose Iglesias singled and scored on a Austin Hays double. Hays was thrown out trying to stretch the double into a triple. Trey Mancini followed with a solo homer.
When Tanner left the game it was 3-2 for the Orioles.
Shun Yamaguchi came into the game in the seventh. He gave up a homer to Rutschman (his second of the game). In the eighth Shun gave up a one-out walk to Rio Ruiz. Then Renato Nunez reached on Shun’s error. Hanser Alberto singled to load the bases and Rutschman singled to bring home one. That was the end of Shun’s day. It looked like Shun would get a the loss, but we had a big ninth.
Ken Giles pitched a quick ninth (without getting a strikeout) to get his 6th save.
On offense we had 11 hits (5 extra base hits). Teoscar Hernandez had a great day, with 2 home runs and a triple (our first of the season). Travis Shaw also had 3 hits, all of them singles. Derek Fisher had 2 hits.
For the third game in a row, Vladimir Guerrero didn’t get a hit.
- 1 in the first: Teoscar hit a solo homer.
- 1 in the sixth: Teoscar tripled and scored on a sac fly by Vlad.
- 2 in the eighth: Reese McGuire single and, an out later, Teoscar homered again.
- 3 in the ninth: Fisher singled and Gurriel and Shaw went back-to-back.
A nice comeback win. We were down 4-2 going into the eighth. Then down 5-4 going into the ninth.
Let’s give JoDs to Teoscar and Lourdes.
The Jays are now 16-10.
Tomorrow Nate Pearson gets the start. He is 2-2, with a 3.38 ERA in 5 starts. The Orioles have Alex Cobb starting, he’s having a tough start to the season, 1-3 with a 9.00 ERA in 5 starts.
