Blue Jays Series Recap – Drowned in Detroit

After losing emphatically to the Boston Red Sox 13-0 (a game I was lucky enough to spend $100+ on my ticket for) the Blue Jays headed to Detroit for three rain-filled afternoon games.  I would love to say there were some positives but outside of a Detroit Tiger bullpen collapse the Blue Jays were once again abysmal.

The starting pitching continued to get lit, the defense continued to make costly errors and the hitting was erratic at best.

How’s this for starting pitching performances?  Brandon Morrow 3.2 IPs, 9 hits, 5 earned.  Mark Buehrle 4.1 IPs, 7 hits, 5 earned.  Josh Johnson 1.1 IPs, 7 hits, 6 earned.

This isn’t panicking, this isn’t bashing and this isn’t anything other than calling out absolutely horrendous execution.

CURRENT RECORD: 3-6 (-14 run differential)

Here are the quick recaps and boxscores:

Game 1 – Tigers 7, Blue Jays 3 – Miguel Cabrera with a HR and 4 RBIs.

Game 2 – Blue Jays 8, Tigers 6 – Blue Jays rally against the Tigers pen.

Game 3 – Tigers 11, Blue Jays 1 – WTF

UP NEXT: The Blue Jays continue the road trip and head to Kansas City to face the Royals (6-3, +15 run differential) who are playing excellent ball.

    This KC team is alright too. We need to wake up.

    The starters’ 15.43 ERA for the series was stellar… 🙂

  • I would have bet money Bautista would produce a higher wRC+ than EE this season. I guess his best days really are far behind him now. 2 days ago
