- Game 1: The Jays got out to a 4-0 start in the 2nd inning on the back of a Maicer Izturis RBI single, a Kevin Pillar RBI groundout, and a 2-run double by Rajai Davis. Robinson Cano hit a 3-run shot in the 3rd to bring the Yankees within one, and Chris Fucking Stewart hit a 3-run shot of his own off Neil Wagner in the 6th to put the Yanks ahead. Robinson Cano and Brett Gardner drove in a couple coffin nails to put the game away.
- Game 2: The Jays got on the board early when Rajai led off the game with a single, stole 2nd, advanced to 3rd and then scored on a wild pitch. Cano tied the game in the 3rd with an RBI single. Davis continued his quality day with a sac fly in the 5th, which put the Jays ahead until Jayson Fucking Nix hit a solo shot to tie it at 2. The tie held until the 9th, when Jayson Fucking Nix hit a walk-off RBI single to score Ichiro.
- Game 1: Esmil Rogers was… Oh, I don’t know, fine I suppose through 5+ innings, allowing base runners in each but only really getting burned by one of the finest hitters in baseball. Brett Cecil came on in the 6th to strike out the only batter he faced and gave way to Neil Wagner, who struck out Mark Reynolds (not impressive, really), walked Jayson Fucking Nix, and gave up the death blow to Stewart. Thad Weber gave up some fairly inconsequential hits and runs.
- Game 2: Mark Buerhle continues to Mark Buerhle, dipping and dodging through real trouble while giving up minimal damage and working quickly. Evidently nobody could stop Jayson Fucking Nix yesterday so you can’t really blame him for the home run in the 7th. Aaron Loup came on to finish the 7th and got a few outs in the 8th. Sergio Santos got the only batter he faced out (giving him WPA player of the game honors), and Darren Oliver continued to be too old for this shit, giving up the game-winning hit to Jayson Fucking Nix.
- Game 1: Jose Bautista was pulled from the game after aggravating a hip injury and after the 2nd game he was officially put on the DL for at LEAST 15 days. Moises Sierra will likely be called up because he’s literally the only OF left on the 40-man roster.
- Game 2: Maicer Izturis sprained his ankle running to 1st and was replaced by Mark DeRosa.
- Rajai Davis had 3 hits and drove in 3 runs over the course of the day. He also stole his 37th base which is incredible given how rarely he is takes regular at-bats.
- Kevin Pillar got his first major league hit, if you need the smallest possible thing to get excited about.
- Jose Reyes had 3 hits, despite not being in the starting lineup for game 2. He appeared in a pinch-hitting role and came through with a lead-off single in the 9th.
- There’s a chance the MLB level Toronto Blue Jays field a lineup with Munenori Kawasaki, Moises Sierra, Anthony Gose, and Kevin Pillar in it this week. Hope you bought your flex packs early.
Morrow, Johnson, Dickey, Reyes, Lawrie, Cabrera and Izturis combined to produce 21.0 rWAR in 2012. In 2013 so far? -1.6. Wow.
