Mariners shutout the Jays with 5 HR.
Yesterday on a warm day in Colorado at Mission Field, the Mariners (1-1) came out of the gate and shutdown the Toronto Blue Jays (0-2). Stephen Cross struggled in the First inning with his command but was able to cool them down, not allowing a run. Through three innings, the Blue Jays could only grab three hits in this one, getting shutout again. Fun fact, the Blue Jays have yet to score their first run and first extra base hit. With a 8-run second inning, along with 5 home runs from Stephen, the Mariners get the win, their first in team history. With the Mariners hitting 5 long balls yesterday, it was the most by a single player or team since last season’s playoffs. The Blue Jays are not looking good at all, which they very well might be eliminated from the postseason as far as we know but we’ll have to wait until the schedule gets deeper. As for Seattle, they are leading the AL West at 1-1.
