Blue Jays at Rays

Sep 16, 2016, 08:27

Marco Estrada was hooked after letting by five runs in as many innings. Alex Colome came in to record his 30th save in 32 opportunities. He went 7 for 12 with four walks. Matt Dermody made his major league debut for the Blue Jays tonight coming out of the pen in the 8th inning. He went just 1.2 innings allowing 5 runs (2 earned) on 5 hits, walking 5 (a reoccurring theme for the kid this season, despite his otherwise good numbers).

In other games, the Los Angeles Angels trounced the Seattle Mariners 10-3, the Baltimore Orioles defeated the New York Yankees 2-0, the Minnesota Twins toppled the Chicago White Sox 11-3, and the Arizona Diamondbacks were 9-4 winners against the Colorado Rockies. Dioner Navarro, who seems to now exclusively hit well against Tampa Bay, hit a two-out dribbler on a 2-2 count to single home Edwin Encarnacion for the game's first run.

That he didn't get outs consistently during the Blue Jays two-run first was largely a result, Cobb said, of the fact that he hadn't been on a big-league mound in two years, not a lack of stuff. He was forced to depart after being hit in the foot on a line drive back to the mound. He struck out seven - six looking - walked one and retired his final 10 batters.

Hoberg had rung Martin up on a pitch the catcher felt was not a strike and the two men argued briefly at home plate.

The big outburst came against Estrada (8-7) after he allowed just two singles in the first five innings. With two outs, Jose Bautista and Josh Donaldson reached base, putting the risky Encarnacion at the plate. Game over. Rays lose 5-3.

In his last inning of work, Cobb struck out the side. This on the heels of working a ideal ninth inning on Friday night on just ten pitches.

The Jays trailed 7-1 going into the ninth and rallied for four runs but could not fight all the way back. "I mean, the difficulty of fighting yourself as well as another team is almost impossible, so once I got out of my own way and started focusing on one of the best lineups in baseball, things went a little smoother for me".

Forsythe had three of the Rays' 13 hits and scored twice. He finished the night 1-for-4 with a bases clearing double.

Kevin Kiermaier had a pair of hits and finished the night 2-for-5 including hitting his eighth home run on the season.

Kiermaier had a two-run home run off reliever Joe Blagini in the seventh to push the Rays' lead to 7-1.

The Rays get three more games against Toronto on the road on September 12-14, and they continue to play the role of spoiler in the American League East.

"I give (the Rays) credit", said Happ, who ended up with a no-decision, leaving his season record at 17-4.

Archer will look to avoid his 18th loss on the season which would tie him for the Rays' franchise lead with Tanyon Sturtze (2002).

"He might have looked a little rusty early but it's been a while since he's been in the big leagues, and he's always been one of the better competitors in the game", Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said.
