Blue Jays 4 Tigers 10
The sim Jays really need Hyun-Jin Ryu back. Shun Yamaguchi had a rough start. Shun went 4.2 innings, allowed 7 hits, 5 earned 3 walks with 5 strikeouts. He gave up two home runs, a 2-run homer from Jeimer Candelario and a solo home run from Pedro Severino. He also allowed a 2-run triple off the bat of Niko Goodrum.
The Tigers also got a run off Wilmer Font and a run off Dany Jimenez,then 3 more off Jordan Romano.
We only managed 5 hits on offense. Former Blue Jays pitcher Matt Boyd went 7 innings allowing just 4 hits and 3 earned.
Cavan Biggio had 2 of our 5 hits, including a home run. He’s still hitting under .200. Rowdy Tellez hit our other home run. The pair had 2 RBI each.
Vlad went hitless. He’s hitting just .261/.355/.414 with 10 home runs in our sim season.
Bo Bichette is doing much better hitting .287/.353/559 with 19 home runs.
Shun gets the Suckage award.
The Jays drop to 41-29, still in first, but just a game up on the Yankees.
The Jays have Nate Pearson (5-3, 3.34 in 14 starts) pitching in game 2 against the Tigers. Tigers have Jordan Zimmerman (4-6, 6.58 in 12 starts) going. We should get a few more hits.
