The Blue Jays fell to the Marlins 14-11 in a wild slugfest. Rafael Dolis is charged with the loss and Brandon Kintzler gets the win. The Blue Jays hit a home run in six consecutive innings, the most in franchise history. In addition, the Blue Jays hit seven home runs, while the Marlins hit two.
Bo Knows Buffalo
Bo Bichette went 5-5 with a home run in the eighth. Bichette now improves his average to .352 and has three home runs on the year.
Milestone for Shaw
Travis Shaw hit his 100th career home run. Coming in the fifth, Shaw smoked a two-run blast. Shaw then hit his 101st career home run in the eighth.
These were Shaw’s first and second home runs with the Jays.
Blue Jays top prospect Nate Pearson struggled. Going 2-1/3 innings, Pearson walked four, gave up five hits and four runs. Pearson’s command was a huge issue, only throwing a first-pitch strike to five batters. Command has been an issue for the young flamethrower, however, this is only his third big league appearance.
Danny Jansen went two for five with a two run home run.
Rowdy Tellez went three for five with two doubles and a home run.
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. went two for five with a blast.
Ryan Borucki worked a clean inning with two strikeouts.
The Blue Jays stay in Buffalo and will take on the Rays. Tanner Roark will get the ball in game one on Friday.
