Blue Jays Series Recap – Interleague Loss To Atlanta

The Toronto Blue Jays continued lack of success in interleague baseball continues as the team lost two of three to the Atlanta Braves.  The Braves can throw out a solid starting pitcher in almost every game and the Jays faced three solid pitchers in Brandon Beachy, Tommy Hanson and super prospect Julio Teheran.

The Blue Jays bats awoke in a big way in the third game to salvage one win in the series.

Blue Jays current record is 31-29, sitting 4th in the AL East, a full four games back of first place Tampa Bay.

Here are the quick recaps and boxscores:

Game 1 – Braves 4, Blue Jays 3 – Coco Cordero gives up 10th inning hit as Jays lose tough one.

Game 2 – Braves 5, Blue Jays 2  – Tommy Hanson solid over eight innings, Dan Uggla hits homerun.

Game 3 – Blue Jays 12, Braves 4 – Rasmus/Lawrie combine for five hits and two homeruns.

UP NEXT: A three game interleague set at home versus the Washington Nationals (35-23).

Stephen Strasburg pitches on Wednesday (12:35 start) – if you have a chance to see this guy pitch in person get down to the Rogers Centre!
