After a disastrous series against the Detroit, the Toronto Blue Jays could only hope it didn’t get any worse for them. They got off to a good start by winning the first of a three game series against the Kansas City Royals 8-4. Emilio Bonifacio went two for four at the plate, tallying two RBIs. Jay’s starting pitcher, J.A. Happ gave up five hits, only four earned runs, three walks, and struck out four batters. There was, however, some bad news for the Blue Jays.  In the sixth inning, Jose Reyes sprained his left ankle while sliding into second base and had to get a MRI. done.  He is going to be sidelined for one to three months.  This is not good folks.  Reyes has been the best offensive player on the Jay’s roster this season so far.  To lose him for this significant amount of time could hurt the team. R.A. Dickey gets his first win against the Royals Word has it, Jay’s  pitcher, R.A. Dickey took some time to watch some old footage of himself prior to the Kansas City series to find out what he was doing wrong in his last two starts with Toronto.  Well, it must of worked because he played liked the Cy Young winner he is in the second game against the Royals. Dickey gave up five hits, just one earned run, two walks and struck out four batters in 6.1 innings pitched. Colby Rasmus made a spectacular catch against the center field wall in the fourth inning. With closing pitcher, Casey Janssen on the mound in the bottom of the ninth inning, the Royals made it interesting by scoring a run to make  it 3-2.   Boy!  I thought the bullpen were going to blow it for Dickey, but they hung  on and R.A.  got his first win as a Blue Jay. In the third and final game it was the other way around.  The Royals beat the Jays 3-2. The Jays face the Chicago White Sox in their first four game series of the season, starting tonight.
