Two bigs swings from Kendrys Morales made sure
TORONTO (AP) —the Toronto Blue Jays stayed perfect at home against Baltimore.Morales homered twice http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authentic-justin-verlander-jersey , Marco Estrada pitched 5 1/3 innings to win his second straight start and the Blue Jays beat Baltimore 5-3 on Monday night, improving to 8-0 at home against the Orioles.Morales broke his bat on his one-out solo homer in the fourth, then added a three-run drive into the second deck in the fifth — both coming against Baltimore right-hander Andrew Cashner (4-11) — for his 22nd career multihomer game.“I guess maybe the wind was blowing out,” Morales said through a translator when asked about his first homer.And the second?“He just threw me a meatball and I hit it much better than the first one,” Morales said.Renato Nunez replied with a solo home run for the struggling Orioles, who have lost nine of their past 11.Toronto is 10-1 overall against Baltimore, five more wins than the Blue Jays have against any other opponent.Estrada (7-9) allowed three runs and seven hits, improving to 9-2 in 18 career games against Baltimore.“I was happy with the way I was locating Jose Cruz Jr. Jersey ,” Estrada said. “Maybe two or three hard hit balls, but that’s going to happen. For the most part I felt like we were in control.”Ryan Tepera got four outs and Jaime Garcia struck out the only batter he faced. Tyler Clippard worked the eighth and Ken Giles finished for his 16th save in 16 opportunities.Baltimore became the first team mathematically eliminated from playoff contention when Oakland won later Monday.Toronto’s Kevin Pillar went 2 for 4 with two doubles and an RBI. On Sunday, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons publicly berated Pillar in the dugout after the outfielder ended the sixth inning by getting thrown out attempting to steal third. Toronto trailed the New York Yankees 6-2 at the time.After Pillar doubled in his first at bat Monday, Gibbons stared into the camera trained on his seat in Toronto’s dugout, then flashed a smile and a thumbs up.Cashner allowed five runs and seven hits in six innings to remain winless in four starts against Toronto this season.“You’ve got to get strike one,” Cashner said. “I worked behind a lot of guys which allowed them to just sit fastball.”Craig Gentry had three hits for the Orioles, while Chris Davis hit a sacrifice fly.ALL IN THE FAMILYBefore the game, Orioles OF Adam Jones tweeted a welcome message to new Blue Jays C Danny Jansen Nolan Ryan Jersey , who was promoted from Triple-A on Aug. 12. The two first met in 2004 when Jones played for the Class-A Wisconsin Timber Rattlers and lived with 9-year-old Jansen and his family in nearby Appleton. Jansen flied out to Jones for the final out of the second.STREAKINGJansen doubled in the fourth, becoming the third player in Blue Jays history with hits in each of his first six major league games. The others were Jesse Barfield (eight games in 1981) and Ryan Goins (eight games in 2013).EXTRA, EXTRA!Six of Toronto’s seven hits went for extra bases. The lone exception was a single by SS Aledmys Diaz in the sixth, Toronto’s final hit of the game.TRAINER’S ROOMOrioles: Baltimore put DH Mark Trumbo (right knee) on the 10-day DL and recalled OF John Andeoli from Triple-A Norfolk. … Jones was reinstated from the bereavement list and returned to the lineup after missing the previous three games. He went 0 for 3 with a walk.Blue Jays: Toronto reinstated C Luke Maile from the paternity list and optioned RHP Sean Reid-Foley to Triple-A Buffalo. … RHP Aaron Sanchez (right index finger) allowed four runs and six hits in 4 1/3 innings in his first rehab start at Double-A New Hampshire and third overall. Sanchez threw 86 pitches, 42 for strikes. He could rejoin the Blue Jays this weekend to start against Philadelphia.UP NEXTOrioles RHP Dylan Bundy (7-11, 4.99) faces Blue Jays RHP Sam Gaviglio (2-6, 5.13) on Tuesday night. Bundy is 0-2 with an 8.27 ERA in three August starts. Gaviglio is 0-6 with a 5.75 ERA in 16 starts since his most recent win, May 25 at Philadelphia. Christian Walker that is. I bet Lone Star Ball is real tired of these "jokes"."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Diamondbacks Farm TeamsGameday ThreadsDiamondbacks NewsDiamondbacks Game ReportsFang FoodSnake EDTShareTweetShareShareSnake Bytes 4/9: Walker vs. RangersgetTVArizona Diamondbacks News[D’backs.com] Inbox: What’s D-backs’ plan for Duplantier? - How long can we expect Jon Duplantier to hang around?

Why wasn’t Adam Jones credited with a double on Saturday when his foot came off the bag? Steve Gilbert has the answers you want![AZ Central] Arizona Diamondbacks’ Adam Jones escaped free agency perils; others weren’t so lucky - Here we are now roughly ten games into the regular season http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authentic-justin-verlander-jersey , yet Craig Kimbrel and Dallas Keuchel remain unsigned. Just what exactly is to blame for this still debated. Players argue team owners are not fielding competitive teams and are hoarding revenues. Like minded general managers may be reluctant to give a nine figure contract to a player who just turned thirty for fear of being strapped with an albatross contract. Another factor to consider is the qualifying offer system and the penalties teams face for signing free agents who rejected a QO. I’d be shocked if there aren’t significant changes made to the Collective Bargaining Agreement the next time it is negotiated.[Arizona Sports] By the numbers: D-backs enjoy strong week at the plate, on the mound - The Arizona Diamondbacks are 4th in MLB for runs scored at 61, but have also allowed the 3rd most amount of runs at 67. Not hardly what most of us would have assumed the split to be at the beginning of the season. Arizona at the plate has been a pleasant surprise, but hopefully Sunday’s 1-0 loss to the Red Sox is not a forecast of offensive struggles.

ESPN lists them at #20. They had the most ground to cover in the Yahoo Sports poll climbing up ten spots to #20. Definitely an overreaction on their part week 1. Still not even in the top 20 on MLB.com. CBS Sports places the snakes at #21. Their best finish is #19 per The Athletic. [Bleacher Report] Donald Trump Cancels Deal Allowing MLB Teams to Sign Cuban Players - Leaving politics out of this discussion and strictly posting this to inform our readers. Seriously, just trust me. The deal would have allowed MLB teams to sign Cuban players under rules similar to signing players from Japan and South Korea. It was seen as a step in a positive direction in ending the well documented human smuggling of players from Cuba just to play in the United States. The current administration has informed the league that any payment to the Cuban Baseball Federation [MLB teams would be required to post for a player] would be considered a payment to the Cuban government, and therefore would not be allowed.[CBS Sports] Orioles’ Chris Davis, with 47 consecutive hitless at-bats Carlos Lee Jersey , breaks MLB record for ineffectiveness at the plate - This would now be the third day in a row we’ve covered Orioles first baseman Chris Davis, but golly he did it. He has now gone hitless in 47 straight at bats, a new MLB record for a position player. He shouldn’t hang his head low, though. Craig Counsell is 5th on the list with 0-for-45 stretch in 2011 and seems to be doing just fine now.[The Athletic] ‘It’s almost like a part of you dies’: Retired players on hard choices and life after baseball - Hands down the best article I’ve ever read on The Athletic. I wish that somehow Brittany Ghiroli would have reached Brandon Webb for this story [not assuming that she didn’t try]. Baseball romanticizes the long, drawn out retirement tours of the Derek Jeters, Trevor Hoffmans, and Ichiro Suzukis. But what about those guys who just seem to fall off the map until you read years later on MLB Trade Rumors they’ve finally retired? Nobody ever cares to document those stories. For every David Peralta who was able to reinvent himself in independent ball there is a thousand other players who never made it back.
