New York Yankees
I must admit, after the Jays swept the New York Yankees in their last series, I wasn’t expecting too much this weekend when they faced the New York Mets.
Well, they surprised me again by winning the first two games and came very close to another sweep on Sunday. Not to mention that outstanding pitching performance by Brandon Morrow on Saturday afternoon.
Friday night’s game was a real slug fest for the Blue Jays as they beat the Mets 14-5.
“Just an outstanding offensive night,” said Blue Jay’s manager, John Farrell as he describes how well his team played that night.
The Blue Jays hit a total of five home runs in the game
J.P. Arencibia was obvious the key to the Blue Jays offense on this night. He hit two home runs and collected six RBIs.
Rajai Davis reached a milestone of his own by also hitting two home runs in the game. This was his first multi-home run game of his Major League career.
Speaking of milestones, Yan Gomes hit his first ever Major League home run in this game.

When Brandon Morrow was coming up through the Seattle Mariners minor league system, he was touted as a power arm who had the ability to become the ace of a pitching staff. He started out as a relief pitcher for the Mariners, but never seemed to get it together. Seattle impatiently traded him to the Toronto Blue Jays, in return getting their current closer, Brandon League. A...
Sometimes, you just need to tip your cap… Our Mets lost 2-0 across the Northern border to the Jays on Saturday afternoon.
The last recap I penned had to do with Zack Greinke, and this game brought upon another great pitching talent in Brandon Morrow. Sometimes, there is absolutely nothing you can do. You can not win if you can not score. Simple as that.
Brandon Morrow dominated...
After eight innings of futility, the Mets' best chance to beat Brandon Morrow was cut short by a close call on the bases.
Morrow pitched his second shutout in four starts, blanking the Mets on three hits and leading the Toronto Blue Jays over New York 2-0 on Saturday.
''Morrow was sharp tonight,'' New York's Mike Baxter said. ''He made a lot of good...
TORONTO -- As good as Brandon Morrow was on Saturday in pitching a three-hit shutout as the Toronto Blue Jays beat the New York Mets 2-0, he still needed a couple of defensive gems from right-fielder Jose Bautista. Bautista made a fine catch going out toward the wall in right field on a sixth-inning line drive by Andres Torres. And then in the ninth threw out Mike Baxter trying...
Batista pitched 2 scoreless innings before leaving the game
Miguel Batusta started the game but left after two quick innings. Jeremy Hefner camewin and pitched decently, but he did allow two runs.
The real issue with today’s game was the Mets could not get anything going against Jays starter Brandon Morrow. Morrow was excellent today, but the Mets lineup was hurting with David...
I'm often misunderstood. Which is why when I complain about a ********* call by Brian Knight and call for more instant replay, you might think I'm only doing that because my favorite team was affected, and because I think the Mets 2-0 loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday would have been totally different had Knight made the correct call. On the contrary, my dear readers. Brandon...
Yesterday afternoon the Mets were shutout by the Blue Jays 2-0. Brandon Morrow threw a complete game 3 hitter. The closest the Mets came to scoring was in the 9th inning when with 1 out and a man on 1st, Mike from Whitestone lined one down the right field line and was thrown out at 2nd by Jose Bautista. The replay showed that Baxter was safe. Today, Dillon Gee (sans goatee...
