Battle of the Birds

Toronto

Mark and I sent up to the Yards today to see the O’s take on Toronto. Very impressive outing by Jays’ starting pitcher Marco Estrada. Using mostly off speed stuff, punctuated with an occasional zinger, he pretty much silenced the Bids’ bats. 7 2/3 innings pitched; 1 run (Adams Jones HR), 1 walk, 12 strikeouts.

Mark used Play-Index on baseball-reference.com to determine the number of times there has been an outing by a Jays’ starter that was at least that good. It’s been done eight times in the history of the Toronto franchise (four of those were Roger Clemens). Most recent is Ricky Romero (2010).

Wade Miley had a reasonably good outing for Baltimore. A two out error by second baseman Schoop, followed by a single and then a homerun by Devon Travis in the first inning. And that was the game.
