Both Lourdes Gurriel Jr. And Raimel Tapia and Zack Collins on two balls to safety for the Blue Jays (5-3), who won game one of this three-goal series against athletics.
Stoper’s Jordan Romano closed the books in the ninth game to score a fifth save on several occasions.
Tapia made Toronto 2-0 in the second half when he moved from first base to cross the home plate in a Santiago Espinal brace.
Blue Jays player Ross Stripling hit the top seven in athletics in the standings before allowing Kevin Smith to duo. He did not give up any runs in four runs.
“He did what we needed,” said Charlie Montoyo, director of the Blue Jays. We needed at least four rounds and that gave it. We were ahead when he left the hill. It’s a very good job on his part. »
Chad Bender led the penalty shooter in the only round of athletics in the sixth game.
Tim Maeza allowed two singles before being replaced by Adam Semper (3-0) after being knocked out. Bender greeted him with a single that propelled Tony Kemp to the plate.
Bender stole second base to put two contestants in the scoring position, but Semper forced Seth Brown out quickly.
The Blue Jays added a locking lane at the bottom of the sixth inning. Espinal was intentionally walked on before Collins criticized a producing song.
Gurriel, who came to record on Collins’ single, sent George Springer home with a single. Springer started the seventh inning with a double stroke.
Stripling gave two hits. The right-handed, whose number of shots was monitored, made 62 shots, 40 of which were for the catch.
Jefferies allowed two runs, seven hits, one walk in four runs and a third on the hill.
