MLB: The Blue Jays are without a complicated, complete game for Chris Bassett

Chris Bassett was tenacious on the mound with the Toronto Blue Jays, who shut out the Atlanta Braves 3-0 Friday night in Toronto.

The Jays thus ended their short two-loss streak and signed a fourth victory in their last six games.

Starter Bassett handcuffed the Brave hitters, who were limited to two light hits and no runs in the game. Only Ronald Acuna Jr. and Eddie Rosario managed to get the ball to safety.

“Their club is amazing,” said George Springer, who scored the first point of the game. He seemed to be in complete control from start to finish. »

Bassett finished with eight strikeouts for his fifth win of the season with seven decisions.

Bassett shot 103 to allow two doubles in the fifth and a single in the sixth. He also struck out two batters.

Manager John Schneider made a visit to the mound after two innings in the eighth.

“He assured me everything was fine. I asked him what was coming and he said ‘thrust the ball in.’ I told him ‘go hard.’ He’s the kind of person you trust, given his level of preparation.”

George Springer drove in with a single in the fifth inning, while Dalton Varshaw homered in the eighth. The Blue Jays’ other point was scored by Nathan Lukes, on a ball that was not caught by receiver Sean Murphy.

Spencer Stryder (4-1) allowed two runs and five hits in six and thirds, with 12 batters at bats. He struck out at least eight batters in each of his eight innings in 2023.
