Bautista, Hutchison lead Blue Jays over Yankees

The Yankees had a chance to sweep the Blue Jays today but had to settle for the series win instead.


“I’m a pretty die-hard fan”, he said. “Teams aren’t used to seeing us in this position this late, that’s for sure, but there’s great respect on both sides”.

Together with Couture, you’ll be able to rely Sharks teammate Joel Ward, Drew Doughty of the Los Angeles Kings and Teddy Purcell of the Edmonton Oilers among the many hockey gamers who’re additionally Blue Jays followers. “I lost it when it was basically getting close to me”. Had Beltran caught the sun-ball on Sunday, his ERA would be under 1.80.

Tulowitzki wound up with a two-out double.

Third baseman Aramis Ramirez had four hits, including an RBI single during a four-run seventh inning that helped the Pittsburgh Pirates to an 8-1 win over the New York Mets.

“It’s awesome seeing how they can come back and enjoy those victories”, Bautista said.

On a whiteboard in the New York clubhouse, someone had written a message of encouragement that read “Cheer up everybody”. We won the series.

New York took the first two games at Rogers Centre, including a thrilling 4-3 comeback on Friday, to reclaim first place.

Prior to their last 15 games, the Blue Jays had scored a major league-best 5.3 runs per game on the season.

One quarter left to the 2015 season and it appears to be a three team race in the A.L. East: Yankees, Blue Jays and Orioles.

Ms. Mirapour agrees. “Pan Am was a letdown for businesses”, she said, “but the Jays are making up for it”.

“I don’t really pay much attention to that”, said Hague. 279 with three home runs and 21 RBIs in 70 games for the Blue Jays earlier this season.

The Jays are 5-0 in Dickey’s last five outings, with the 40-year-old allowing just six runs during that span.

“It’s a group that knows how to fight back and they’ve done that”, Girardi said. “He has risen to the occasion”. He struck out nine. Ray Keating was 20 when he did it against the St. Louis Browns on May 19, 1914.

Hutchison pitched 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball Sunday in the Blue Jays’ big 3-1 win at Yankee Stadium, moving to 12-2 on the season.

On the flip side, the Jays are no wide-eyed neophytes, as manager John Gibbons explained to’s Shi Davidi. “Many players of color grow up dancing and laughing on the field, but when their talent and dedication propels them to the highest level, their flavor can be viewed as disrespectful or worthy of a fastball to the face”.

Gibbons said Hutchison was surprised by the move, but “he understood it was a business decision”. “Let’s hope it holds up”. Those “aging or aged players” I’m talking about are Alex Rodriguez (40), Mark Teixeria (35), and Carlos Beltran (38).

The only run Hutchison allowed came on a home run by Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury in the sixth.


The announcement that reliever Aaron Loup would be headed to Buffalo preceded Hutchison’s by a day. Despite the harness, Cashman said the walk was scarier than his previous daredevil experiences, which include skydiving and rappelling down a building.
