MLB: Toronto Blue Jays at Detroit Tigers

Recap: Blue Jays 7, Tigers 2; Donaldson Dominates Despondent Detroit

The Blue Jays previous two games have run the gamut on the emotional investment side of things. The opener against the Tigers was an 11-0 laugher, and the Blue Jays were out of it from basically the get go.

Recap: Red Sox 6, Blue Jays 4, Passed Balls and Replays

On an extra day of rest, Marcus Stroman took the mound in Boston this afternoon looking to redeem himself after his last less than impressive outing against the Red Sox, where he went just 5.1 innings and gave up 11 hits. The Red Sox had lost their last three games, while the Jays were looking […]

The Blue Jays Hitters Need to Adjust to Adjustments

Recap: Red Sox 4, Jays 2; Token David Price Pun

Reunions can be bittersweet, can’t they? The Jays faced last year’s trade deadline acquisition David Price, and ended up losing. The Red Sox’ new ace was excellent, starting to earn that big money contract they lavished on him in the off-season. He struck out eight over seven solid innings, with just two earned runs. Marco Estrada wasn’t quite […]
