Blue Jays Series Recap – Slow Start Vs Indians

It wasn’t the start that the fans had hoped for and the hyper-inflated expectations definitely added some pressure to win early.  The opener was a bit of a dud and the tone was set early when JP Arencibia missed the first R.A. Dickey knuckleball offering.  The team was flat and couldn’t get much needed key hits early in the game with runners in scoring position.  Justin Masterson settled in and at one point the Blue Jays had 19 batters retired in a row.

Game two was more of the same until Jose Bautista hit a towering game-tying homerun in the bottom of the ninth inning.  Unfortunately Sergio Santos missed his spot and elevated a fastball that Mark Reynolds deposited into the seats and the Indians squeaked one out.

The bats really came alive for the Jays as the team salvaged the finale with homeruns from Jose Bautista, Edwin Encarnacion, JP Arencibia (2) and Colby Rasmus.  Casey Janssen nailed down the save and the Jays won 10-8.

CURRENT RECORD: 1-2 (-4 run differential)

Here are the quick recaps and boxscores:

Game 1 – Indians 4, Blue Jays 1 – Dickey, Blue Jays struggle in opener.

Game 2 – Indians 3, Blue Jays 2 – Bautista ties it late, Reynolds wins it for Indians in extras.

Game 3 – Blue Jays 10, Indians 8 – Bats come alive, Arencibia homers twice in wild game.

UP NEXT: Welcome back John Farrell to the Rogers Centre to face the Boston Red Sox (2-1, +9 run differential) in a three game set. #FFF
