We have been swept BUT.......let's be honest we should have won two games (that first game😣): Fast Stats: Aug 20 - #bobichette 2-4 with 2 runs, 2 RBIs, and 2 HRs (off Kershaw!) Aug 21 - #rowdytellez 1-4 with a run, RBI and a game tying HR (not bad). Aug 22 - #jacobwaguespack 7.0 innings pitched of shutout ball on 1 hit and 5 Ks and 1 walk.
Game talk - let's be honest.......Waguespack is a younger Marcos Estrada! Naw let's be real it's not that bad we lost this series. Dodgers are the better team and honestly, we should have won any of these games. Bichette is still proving he is the real deal, Vladdy keeps doing well, and Waguespack is already beyond worth of trading Aaron Loup for (bet you don't remember that!). Real Talk - however as said pitching is killing our chances to win every game and last post, I said for next season this is the starting line up:
1. Free agent
3. Anthony Kay
5. Waguespack or Thornton* (replace by Nate Pearson in future). With Free Agent being anyone (I have already explained we need a nice starter for that on previous posts) I do not need to explain who could it be......it can be anyone.
But I'll explain one at a time. The #2 being Shoemaker makes sense. The guy had a stellar start to the season, was a top starter in the past, if not for every luck against him to always hurt him in the end, a UCL (I think) ended his season this time. With the youth needing a veteran arm and an affordable one that knows how to be great, he needs to be there. I believe he can have a good season, especially with the youngsters having 1 year of experience now.
The Jays have blown an amazing game by Jacob Waguespack. The Jays would get their two runs by Derek Fisher driving on Randal Grichuk to make it 1-0 then Vladdy hitting a solo home run to make it 2-0. Toronto would certainly control the game until the ninth when Derek Law would blow the save and the Dodgers would get their 12th walkoff Win this season. Jacob Waguespack started this game and had his best start to his young career going 7.0 IP giving up 0 ER on 1 H. He would also walk a batter and strike out 5. Overall great outing to Jacob against this all star Dodgers lineup. The Jays will now begin Players Weekend when they travel down to Seattle for a three game weekend set. Trent Thornton will be on the mound for tomorrow’s game. First pitch is at 10:10 PM.
Jacob Waguespack: 7.0 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 1 BB
Jason Adam: 0.2 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 1 BB
Derek Law: 0.2 IP: 3 H, 3 ER, 1 BB
Lucas got his first Major League baseball from a very nice Toronto Blue Jays Catcher. Thank you very much! Gotta love this sport! Lucas liked watching the pitchers warm up ;) Maybe we have a future pitcher on our hands! #torontobluejays#bluejays#MLB
