Toronto Blue Jays Live to Fight Another Day


The Toronto Blue Jays are not dead yet. Aaron Sanchez and Corey Kluber squared off in what could have been an elimination game for the Blue Jays Tuesday afternoon.

The Blue Jays offense has been close to non-existent thus far this series. Through the first three games, the Blue Jays scored a total of three runs on seventeen hits. The Jays powerful offense has been looking for that big hit when they needed it most, and as of Tuesday’s game it was yet to come. Last year’s AL MVP, Josh Donaldson finally provided Jays fans with some life. In the third inning of a scoreless game, Donaldson smacked a two out solo home run to give the Jays a 1-0 lead. An inning later, Ezequiel Carrera added an RBI single to increase the lead to 2-0. The Indians cut the lead in half, 2-1, on a Roberto Perez RBI double in the fifth. In the seventh, Edwin Encarnacion put the Jays ahead for good poking a two run single, making it 4-1. Kevin Pillar added some insurance in the eighth with a sacrifice fly making it 5-1. Video of the Donaldson long ball can be seen at the link below:

Corey Kluber threw five innings of two run ball on four hits while striking out seven Blue Jays. Aaron Sanchez was just that much better for the Jays, even almost un-hittable. Sanchez threw six innings allowing only one run on two hits while striking out five Indians. Blue Jays relievers Jason Grilli, Brett Cecil, and Roberto Osuna combined to throw three hitless innings to close out the game.

Toronto became the fourth team to force a Game 5 after trailing 3-0 in a LCS. The last team to complete a comeback from down 3-0 was the Terry Francona led, 2004 Red Sox. Game 5 will be tomorrow afternoon at 4:08 in Toronto. The Blue Jays send Marco Estrada to the mound. Estrada will be opposed by Indians rookie left-hander Ryan Merritt, who is making only his second career Major League start.
