Blue Jays go for sweep of Orioles

Blue Jays go for sweep of Orioles

The Blue Jays activated the catcher before their game against the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday night.

A catcher may wear all kinds of protection when crouching behind home plate to handle pitches in a game, but sometimes there simply is not enough protection in the world when you need it the most.

"He wants to [play] real bad", Gibbons said on Tuesday. "It changes the dynamic of the team and how we score runs lately".

In the days before Irma hit a Florida mum gave birth to her baby just before the monster storm hit. At least two cranes collapsed and a roof blew off a home in nearby neighborhoods.


The Orioles (71-74) fell three games below.500 for the first time since August 23, and they weren't able to take advantage of grittiest starting pitching performances of the season from right-hander Dylan Bundy, who despite holding the Blue Jays to one run over six innings, recorded his final out of the night down 1-0.

Otherwise, the Blue Jays will be banking on the rapid growth of a prospect like Danny Jansen, Max Pentecost or Reese McGuire, each of whom must be added to the 40-man roster in November or risk exposure to the Rule 5 draft.

Martin has been on the DL since August 12 due to a left oblique strain suffered on August 11 against the Pittsburgh Pirates. "I can't say it was super taxing or that those extra months of baseball I played have been wearing me down". "There's only a couple of weeks left; it's important to him. I'd have to be in both situations to be able to tell you, 'Oh, this is how I feel, ' because it's what I've played through and I feel fine". "But he wants to do it, so".

It seems that Arsene Wenger will play a slightly weakened side with squad players coming into the team. Bellerin told the IBTimes : "Alexis is 100 per cent focused on Arsenal".


"As a professional, when you're ready to go, you're ready to go", came Martin's response. And if you're healthy, you go play and help your team win.

Gausman will be making his sixth start of the season against the Blue Jays on Wednesday. O's starter Dylan Bundy allowed a run on five hits and struck out eight in six frames before Zach Britton gave up a pair of runs in the 9th for a blown save and a loss.

He is 2-0 with a 1.57 ERA against Toronto this season and 4-3, 3.30 in 17 games (12 starts) in his career against the Blue Jays. He'll also retell the story of Game 5 of the ALDS to his kids for the next 20 years. It was his first four-out save opportunity since August 5 against the Detroit Tigers. The remaining four are 1:07, which has been the normal starting time in the past.

However, his injury could open a path for Jack Wilshere back into the squad. "Jack is getting stronger and stronger", Wenger said. A majority of the crowd serenaded him, however, and Wenger insisted that the boos had not affected the forward.


Stroman returned six days later and allowed six hits and four runs in six innings in a loss to the Detroit Tigers.
