Blue Jays Series Recap – Mariners Take Two From Jays

Poor play continued in the Blue Jays series versus the Seattle Mariners as the M’s took two of three.  The Jays salvaged the finale with a bit of an offensive outburst – even Melky Cabrera homered in the 10-2 romp.

If you aren’t already familiar you need to check out the game recaps by Wes, they are top notch.

Here is a sampling.

Game Three:

Maybe this is what they needed: Melky Cabrera hit his first home run of the season after Morrow struggled so greatly in the top of the inning. His teammates ignored him—no high fives, ‘lo vistes’ or anything—when he returned to the dugout, before they eventually congratulated him. Jose Bautista followed with a walk. The Jays have done a few things to re-take the momentum. Yet again, though, an OF made a nice play on a ball the Edwin hit very well. JP Arencibia singled through the left side for the Jays eighth hit of the afternoon against Joe Saunders and the M’s. Mark DeRosa then homered to CF to give the Jays a 7-2 lead. Subbing for Lawrie today, DeRosa has homered and doubled. After circling the bases, he sat down beside Brandon Morrow on the bench. He also called the players only meeting this past wee. He’s putting his veteran leadership to good use. Ground outs by Izturis and Bonifacio brought a very productive inning (HR, BB, single, HR; 4 R) to an end.

I also wrote a quick commentary on when is the appropriate time to start officially “panicking” about the 2013 Blue Jays.

CURRENT RECORD: 11-21, 5th place, 9.5 games out of first place. (-47 run differential)

Here are the quick recaps and boxscores:

Game 1 – Mariners 4, Blue Jays 0 – Felix Hernandez – nuff said.

Game 2 – Mariners 8, Blue Jays 1 – Dickey with another sub-par effort.

Game 3 – Blue Jays 10, Mariners 2 – DeRosa hits 3-run HR, Cabrera hits his first of the season.

UP NEXT: A tough four game set begins in Tampa Bay Monday to face the Rays (14-16, +1 run differential).

Game 1 – Buehrle vs Hellickson,Game 2- Happ vs Hernandez, Game 3 – Romero vs Moore, Game 4 – Dickey vs Price.
