Orioles 4 Blue Jays 12

Jays win, but it only matters if the Nationals can beat the Red Sox. As I type this, it is tied.

It has been one amazing season. Three home parks. Two guys who could be MVP (maybe three). A guy who could be Cy Young. And one who will get Rookie of the Year votes.

A huge day for the Jays bats.

The Jays had four home runs:

  • George Springer started the game off with a home run.
  • Vladimir Guerrero had a two-run homer in the second (number 48)
  • Springer hit a grand slam in the third (his 22nd home run).
  • Marcus Semien hit a solo homer in the fifth (number 45).

And we had some none home run runs. Teoscar Hernandez drove in 3 without a home run. And Santiago Espinal brought in one.

We had 11 hits on the day. Teoscar three. Two each for Springer, Semien, and Bichette.


We vintage Hyun Jin Ryu (other than only going 5 innings. He allowed 6 hits, including a monster home run by someone named Tyler Nevin. His first career home run went 442 feet. And he gave up another run in the fifth, singles by Richie Martin and Cedric Mullins and a throwing error from Semien on what could have been a double-play ball. Ryu hit a batter and walked a batter, but then got out of the inning.

Nate Pearson pitched a scoreless inning.

Julian Merryweather allowed a run in his inning.

Jacob Barnes also allowed a run in his inning.

Adam Cimber had a scoreless ninth.


Jays of the Day: Springer (.192 WPA), Hernandez (.100), and Ryu (.096).

No Suckage Jays. The Rays are the suckage Jays.


We had 1,184 comments in the GameThread (and it will climb as the Red Sox/Nationals game continues). I led us to victory. And it only matters if the Nationals can pull off a win.
