The Blue Jays once again showed their true colours and responded to a serious beat down at the hands of the Texas Rangers to sweep the Baltimore Orioles in a three-game home series. It seems to be a common theme this season when the team seems to be losing ground they find a way to bounce back.
Ricky Romero, Colby Rasmus and Brett Lawrie each had a big series, which is a great sign for the team.
The sweep takes the Jays record to 27-24 and they are in fourth place in the AL East – two games back of the Rays/Orioles for first.
Here are the quick recaps and full boxscores (clink link):
Game 1 – Blue Jays 6, Orioles 2 – Edwin Encarnacion and Kelly Johnson go deep in big win to stop losing streak at five.
Game 2- Blue Jays 8, Orioles 6 – score is flattering for the O’s, Lawrie with a big three hit night and huge defensive play.
Game 3 – Blue Jays 4, Orioles 1 – Jays torch Hammel for four homeruns, must have been stealing signs.
UP NEXT: Three game series at home versus the Boston Red Sox, followed by a three game set on the raod versus the Chicago White Sox.
