He also hit two batters and struck out three.
“I felt good with the exception of the double to Headley”, Price said. It didn’t work out.
Are they confident? You bet.
He handed the ball to Sanchez with two on and one out. The Maple Leafs, who missed the playoffs for the ninth time in 10 years, had a resale average of $177 last season.
Toronto had gone 33 innings without allowing a run to the Yankees until the bats broke through Friday. They snapped Toronto’s club record-tying 11-game win streak and regained a one-half game advantage in the East.
RED SOX 15, MARINERS 1 Travis Shaw hit two home runs and Rusney Castillo hit one to carry Boston to a victory over visiting Seattle.
Yet in the end it was Miller’s signature pitch that ended the long at-bat and gave the Yankees their biggest victory of the year.
As play begins today, baseball has just two divisions led by the team that was expected to win in March: the NL Central and West. While the Dodgers and Cardinals had challenges from the Pirates and Giants, respectively, baseball’s other four divisions have been seemingly up for grabs. That’s what people want to see, pay to see. But they are last in the majors with 40 road losses. “It was a great at-bat”. He struck out six. “They’re out here to support the Blue Jays and I definitely feel the love and support they give me”. But then Price bore down to strike out Teixeira on a full-count fastball.
In his third start since arriving via trade from Detroit, Price took a 3-0 lead into the eighth inning. Revere singled to send Pillar to third with the Blue Jays’ first hit of the game. Then in the eighth came three straight hits, all scorched, and Price left to a huge ovation, tapping his heart and touching his cap.
Twins starter Ervin Santana squandered a 4-0 lead, thanks to the towering two-run shot by Moreland in the fourth and a two-run, go-ahead double by the first baseman in the fifth. Donaldson over-ran third base, but eluded the tag as he dove back in. After striking out Bautista, Betances was able to get Encarnacion and Smoak to fly out to center field. I’m like, “Really? Well, I probably won’t have a chance to get that”. So let the anticipation build, Toronto, but remember: the guys from the Bronx are trying to make some of their own history, too.
A three-run home run from Carlos Beltran silenced a sellout crowd at Rogers Centre and made the Toronto Blue Jays’ winning streak and brief stay in first place come to an abrupt end.
The Blue Jays will try to get back to their winning ways this afternoon when they host the Yankees in the second of three games. “We don’t have a bunch of young kids who ride that emotional roller- coaster”. Keep calling yourselves “the best fans in the country” as your football team leaves for LA you giant collective of asshats. “Because I knew only place he [Tulowitzki] was going to hit it was to me – either it was going to go foul or to me”. Blue Jays relievers hadn’t allowed a run since the ninth inning of an August 2 win over Kansas City. In the bullpen, Aaron Sanchez was warmed up and ready and Gibbons wasted no time calling for him. I don’t care how good a pitcher you are.
