Well the Jays have taken round 1, in what turned out to be a very lop-sided affair. Cole Hamels stayed true to his end of regular season form and His stuff looked average at best. The jays line up took full advantage of this and gave Rangers fans a game too forget, beating down on them to a final score of 10-1.
Multi Rbi games from Donaldson, Tulo and Jose make it really easy to cruise to victory no matter who is on the mound. Luckily, we got the treat of watching Marco Estrada work for 8 and a third masterful innings. Giving up only 4 hits and 1 earned run.
Not much to take away from this game other than Texas’ pitching needs to set up or this is going to a really quick series. Game one might just be blood in the water for a very hungry shark tank that is the Blue Jays Bats.
Today we will Have J.A Happ on the mound vs Yu Darvish. Who many Texas fans thought should have started game 1. Darvish has a chance to become a saviour in Texas, if he can shut down a red hot Jays teams and wright the ship heading to Toronto. For Happ he will be trying to start the post season off on a good foot after having an incredible regular season.
I think this Jays roster has really bought in to the pass the baton or next man up Ideology. From a pitching stand point, Stroman gave us a solid game in the wildcard, Estrada did him one better last night and now its Happ’s turn.
The only question left is will Texas take it lying down or put up a fight to avoid heading to Toronto down 0-2.
Go JAYS GO !
