OOTP Season Sim Game 69: Jays lose to Mariners

This was yesterday’s game. There was enough going on yesterday that I figured we didn’t need another post, but I’ll put up two of these late tonight.

The draft seemed to go well for the Jays. When I saw we picked Zach Britton, I was thinking ‘but this is the amateur draft’. There was a quick moment of ‘but the Orioles are an amateur organization’, until I remembered he was a Yankee now. I does look like we picked this Zach Britton to save some money for Austin Martin, as well as giving Jays fans a little Easter egg.

Anyway, yesterday’s sim Jays game:

Mariners 6 Blue Jays 3

Tanner Roark had his second lousy start in a row. Roark went 5 innings, allowed 6 hits, 4 earned, 3 walks, 3 walks.

And a tired pen gave up a couple more runs:

  • Dany Jimenez: Gave up a hit and a walk, getting 2 outs without allowing a run.
  • Anthony Bass: 1 inning, 1 hit, 1 earned. He gave up a single and then
  • Brian Moran came into the game and gave up a home run. So they each picked up an earned run. Moran got one out.
  • Wilmer Font pitched a scoreless inning, giving up a walk but getting 3 strikeouts. Font has 65 strikeouts in 39.2 innings.
  • Ken Giles pitched the ninth, giving up a walk with 2 k.

On offense we had 9 hits. Lourdes Gurriel, Bo Bichette, Teoscar Hernandez and Danny Jansen had 2 hits each (after spending most of the season with a BA under .200, Danny is up to .233 now). Vladimir Guerrero had the only hit.

We scored our first run in the fourth inning, but the Mariners had 4 runs by then. A run in each of the eighth and ninth weren’t enough to get us back into the game.

No JoD’s today. Let’s give a Suckage award to Roark.

Michael Wacha started for the Mariners, he went 7.2 getting the win. In my OOTP game I traded for Wacha (as I’ve had 4 starting pitchers hurt), but he hasn’t been good for me.

Jays are now 41-28.

The Jays have Shun Yamaguchi (6-2, 4.92 ERA, in 8 starts, 6 relief appearances) starting in Fridays’s game (I’ll post later tonight), our first of 3 in Detroit against the Tigers.
