Blue Jays Series Recap – Splitting With The Royals

After getting blown out 11-3 in the first of four games the Blue Jays came storming back to win games two and three but failed to win the series in a tough 9-6 final in game four.  The Blue Jays offense continues to swing hot bats but the pitching staff has been decent at times but outright brutal more than not.  Is help on the way via trades?

CURRENT RECORD: 42-41 (+27 run differential), 8.0 games behind 1st place New York Yankees, 3.0 games behind Wild Card leader Baltimore Orioles.

Quick recaps and boxscores:

Game 1 – Royals 11, Blue Jays 3 – Ricky Romero continues to get hit hard.

Game 2 – Blue Jays 6, Royals 3 – Adam Lind homers, Brett Cecil holds the fort.

Game 3 – Blue Jays 4, Royals 1 – Carlos Villanueva solid with six shutout innings.

Game 4 – Royals 9, Blue Jays 6 – Henderson Alvarez ineffective.

UP NEXT: Three game series versus the surging Chicago White Sox (45-37, +60 run differenital) prior to beginning the All-Star break, this would be a huge series heading into the hiatus.
