Blue Jays extend winning streak to four games

Blue Jays extend winning streak to four games

Toronto Blue Jays Jose Bautista connects on a three-run home run against the Seattle Mariners in the seventh inning of their AL baseball game in Toronto on Saturday, May 13, 2017.

With Thursday's news lefty Francisco Liriano was heading to the disabled list with shoulder inflammation, the Blue Jays now have more than $83 million on the DL, essentially half their opening-day payroll.

Blue Jays starter pitched six innings, gave up four walks and walked three while striking out eight.

Earlier Saturday, the Mariners said right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma is expected of miss four to six weeks because of a sore shoulder.

Yovani Gallardo is the only member of the projected rotation still in action.

Tigers 7, Angels 1: Justin Upton hit a three-run homer, and Michael Fulmer pitched seven innings of three-hit ball in Detroit's win.

Toronto RHP Aaron Sanchez (0-1, 4.05 ERA) will return from the disabled list on Sunday to start the finale of the four-game series against the Mariners, who will start LHP Ariel Miranda (3-2, 5.20 ERA).

"Two of those guys on the infield that we're missing (Josh Donaldson and Troy Tulowitzki) can really carry a team by themselves", Jays infielder Devon Travis said. They came back to defeat the Cleveland Indians 8-7 on a walk-off single by Ryan Goins, who has done admirably replacing Tulowitzki.

The Blue Jays manufactured a run in the second inning against Christian Bergman after Steve Pearce and Ryan Goins reached on singles.

The pitchers' salaries trail those of the trio of position players also sidelined.

"Later in the game as my pitch count got up there a little bit, my offspeed pitches started to come up a little", Biagini said.

"We don't think it's a big deal, you just deal with it", Jays manager John Gibbons said. We told Tulo that he's Wally Pipping him and that could delay his rehab. "Anytime a pitcher grabs his arm, especially with what's been going on with us, you get him out of there". This comes after the Mariners won a series against Texas and took two from the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Mariners (17-17) must find a different way to win with 80 percent of their rotation injured.

In the second inning, he allowed just one run despite singles from the first two batters.

"He's a hot hitter right now", Vincent said. Barney had hit.340 with a.809 OPS in 18 games as a starter, before Wednesday. "It's worked out well". Nevertheless, the Mariners have chose to deploy him as much more of a LOOGY this year: he's seen 21 lefties and only six righties total at this early point in the season. "If you start saying, 'Oh, we've got to win seven out of 10, ' it gets too confusing". Get blown out in those and even the "it's early" crowd will have trouble keeping a chin up. Mike Bolsinger allowed three hits, four walks and two runs over 5 2/3 innings in his first start for the Blue Jays after having his contract selected from Triple-A Buffalo. Two singles and Bautista's homer. Look like home runs have been a problem. He was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Monday. He made six starts for the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2016.

Cleveland opened the scoring in the first inning when Jason Kipnis touched up Toronto starter Francisco Liriano for a two-run double.

Jose Bautista launched a three-run homer in the seventh inning and Kevin Pillar rapped out three hits as the Blue Jays dumped the Seattle Mariners 7-2 at the Rogers Centre on Saturday afternoon.
