The Toronto Blue Jays suffered a disastrous seven-run first inning in a blowout loss.
The Blue Jays suffered a shocking 4-9 loss to the Minnesota Twins at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on Monday (Nov. 11). It was Toronto’s second straight loss.
Things started off well for Toronto. The Jays jumped out to an early lead behind bullpen day opener Trevor Richards’ 3 1/3 innings of one-hit, seven-strikeout ball.
The Jays got on the board in the bottom of the second when Whit Merrifield singled to right field with runners on first and second, but Dalton Bashaw followed with a single up the middle and Santiago Espinal was stranded at shortstop with runners on first and second.토토사이트
However, two batters later in the inning, Brandon Belt doubled and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. singled to right center to put runners on second and third. 2-0.
In the bottom of the fifth, after a leadoff double by George Springer and a single to right field by Bo Bichette, Nathan Luke’s sacrifice fly to center field made it 3-0.
In the top of the seventh inning, however, things got weird. In the top of the seventh, leadoff hitter Trevor Ranacci hit a solo shot. It was 3-1.
Then, in the top of the eighth, Adam Shimber was pounded relentlessly. After a bunt single to Michael A. Taylor, he gave up an infield single to Eduardo Julien and a double to Donovan Solano in left center to load the bases. He struck out Alex Kirillov but gave up a walk-off grand slam to Carlos Correa. It was 3-5.
The crisis continued. Trevor Ranacci singled to right and Will Castro walked to put runners on first and second. Mitch White, who eventually took over, was unable to contain the situation. He gave up a three-run homer to Max Kepler to make it 3-8.
In the top of the ninth, the Toronto pitcher gave up a two-run double to Alex Kirillov with runners on first and second. Santiago Espinal’s RBI single in the bottom of the ninth brought the tying run to the plate, but a George Springer double with runners on first and third wiped out the rally.
