Bats go missing, Jays lose to Mets

MLB: Toronto Blue Jays at New York Mets Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

Blue Jays 0 Mets 3

I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m going to have a drink or two.

Steven Matz gave up a leadoff walk and then a home runs to Pete Alonso. And that was all that mattered in today’s game.

Matz went 5.2 innings, allowing just 3 home runs, 2 more walks with 5 strikeouts. So it really should be marked down as a good start for Steven.

But we didn’t score.

We only had 3 hits all game. Randal Grichuk, Cavan Biggio, and Alejandro Kirk each had a single.

Can’t hit, can’t win.

The bullpen did a good job, excepting Ryan Borucki giving up Alonso’s second home run of the game (he got ripped off on a strike call earlier that at-bat, the strike zone was terrible tonight). Adam Cimber got the last out of the sixth, and Tayler Saucedo pitched a clean seventh. Saucedo has been looking good lately. He’s allowed 1 earned in his previous 9 appearances.

Beyond that, Teoscar made a very nice catch in left. Biggio made a nice diving grab on a ball down the line and made a good throw to first (which Vlad made a nice scoop on).

And Buck and Pat bothered me more than usual today. I don’t know what it was. Maybe I should have had a drink during the game).

No Jays of the Day.

Let’s give a Suckage Award to the entire batting lineup. Springer had the low mark at -.083 (it is hard to get to a high negative number when everyone is in the red).

Tomorrow is a rare Saturday night game, 7:00 Eastern. Ryu vs. Walker. Jays, would you mind not getting shut out by Walker?

We had 424 comments, not bad considering it was such a quick game, 2:33. Gids10UK led us to a rather dull defeat.
