Blue Jays seek series edge vs. Red Sox after walkoff win

Blue Jays seek series edge vs. Red Sox after walkoff win

But that one stinking mistake to a catcher prevented him from a regulation win that would have been his fourth of the season.

Saturday was more of the same story.

"Between Happ, Sanchey, Estrada, Jaime, I love our staff", said Stroman, who went on the disabled list Friday with right shoulder fatigue.

McCutchen, a five-time All-Star who played his first nine seasons in Pittsburgh before being traded to the Giants in January, received an extended ovation from the largest crowd to watch a Pirates home game this season when he came to bat in the second inning.

The Boston Red Sox and the Toronto Blue Jays square off in the rubber match of their three game AL East division set from Rogers Centre in Major League Baseball action on Sunday afternoon.

Blue Jays right-hander Marco Estrada (2-3) allowed four runs and seven hits in six innings and is winless in four starts. He struck out four and walked three. He allowed six runs and 10 hits in 4 1-3 innings in the second game of a doubleheader at Cleveland on May 3.

The American League East championship flag from that run will fly forever, but with each passing year that season gets buried deeper into the collective memory.

"Yeah, absolutely. The more I threw the better I felt, so that's a very good sign", said Price, describing the positives that told him he was right as, "having a full mix, being able to throw all of my pitches and not have to think about it, not have to worry about it".

Said manager Alex Cora: "I saw something different in the way he pitched today. I'm sure I'll start figuring things out and pitch like I know I can". Sanchez's problem was his pitch count, which got up to 96, forcing manager John Gibbons to once again go to his bullpen much earlier than he had hoped.

"When I made that error, I obviously felt bad, it was the dumbest play of my career", Maile said. We've just been struggling a bit, which happens in sports.

David Price got the win to improve to 3-4 after giving up both runs on five hits while striking out six over 5.1 innings of work.

Saturday's ballgame was boring for Blue Jays fans. Biagini's last start for the Bisons came Tuesday when he allowed a pair of runs over six innings against the Rochester Red Wings, the Minnesota Twins' top affiliate.

Said Price: "I can't recall another time I've been on the mound with someone running out". "Probably he's not happy with the outing, but for me, changing speeds, using the breaking ball, using elevated fastballs that was good to see".

"It's always a place I've enjoyed pitching in", he replied when asked what he feels pitching in Toronto now.

The Red Sox, who won the final two games of the three-game series April 24-26, will be trying to match that feat in this three-game series starting Saturday.

"It's gotta be college (since last hitting two homers in a game), definitely not since I've been in pro ball", he added. Andrew Benintendi and Hanley Ramirez each had two RBIs, with Ramirez hitting a home run while Benintendi went 3 for 5 with a double. He struck out four straight batters in the second and third innings. Xander Bogaerts SS 6.

Alford had trimmed Boston's lead to 3-1 with a run-scoring single in the fourth.

NEW YORK - Khris Davis, Matt Chapman, Jed Lowrie and Matt Joyce all homered for Oakland, and New York lost back-to-back games for the first time in more than a month.

Luke Maile is not the first name that comes to mind when you picture hitting excellence.
