Blue Jays lose shortstop Freddy Galvis to Reds

Blue Jays lose shortstop Freddy Galvis to Reds

The ball left his bat at 118.7 miles per hour, the fourth-hardest hit ball in the majors this season.

The Blue Jays starter threw five innings of one-run, five-hit ball and struck out five batters as Toronto beat the Yankees 8-2, tying the four-game series at 1-1.

And yes, even though he didn't get a hit for the first time in his young career, Bo Bichette was a factor with a stunning, multiple run-saving defensive play in the fifth inning, an effort overshadowed only by a pair of Teoscar Hernandez round trippers. Toronto connected three times off homer-prone lefty J.A. Happ (9-7). Tanaka then coaxed Derek Fisher into hitting into a double play to end the inning and his day.

The five-foot-10, 185-pound switch-hitter was signed by the Blue Jays on January 29 to a one-year deal with a club option for 2020.

Gardner was ejected and had to be restrained from going after home plate umpire Chris Segal in the fourth. Clearly, if they see a player they like, they are willing to give them an opportunity. Ten years later, he was just as good, allowing one run on four hits and two walks. He didn't start but entered the game at catcher in the eighth inning. Freddy Galvis leads the Blue Jays with 120 hits and 54 RBI while Randal Grichuk and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. have combined for 191 hits and 103 RBI.

Teheran (7-7) pitched seven innings and departed with a 6-1 lead. The journeyman right-hander has spent parts of six seasons in the Majors, mostly as a reliever. Stephen Tarpley, who was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Saturday when Jonathan Holder went on the 10-day IL with shoulder inflammation, took over in the second and allowed two runs, one hit and four walks with four strikeouts in 2 1/3 innings. The Rangers have scored eight runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last six games.

Roberto Osuna got three outs for his 26th save.

Urshela had back-to-back, two-homer games against Baltimore and Toronto on Wednesday and Thursday.

The Reds' biggest July trade paid off both ways against the NL Central leaders. "The more experience we get, the better we're going to be".

Bauer (10-8) allowed three hits in seven innings, including Nicholas Castellanos' third homer of the series.

The Blue Jays will conclude the 2020 season on the road at Fenway Park against the Red Sox.

Raisel Iglesias pitched the ninth for his 23rd save in 26 chances. After snapping the Yankees' nine-game winning streak on Friday, the ball club has now knocked off the Bronx Bombers in consecutive outings. He improved to 2-2 on the season with the win.

"That was the strategy early in the at-bat, go up and in", Chapman said.

Previously announced, the Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals will play two games in London in June.
