A recap of yesterday's Baltimore/Toronto game. A preview of tonight's Toronto/Cleveland.
|After signing a five-year, $52 million contract extension on Tuesday, Toronto Blue Jays outfielder, Randal Grichuk, had the game of his life yesterday in a 5-3 win over the Baltimore Orioles.
Grichuk went three for four at the plate, hitting two solo home runs in the third and eighth inning.
Grichuk also scored the game's first run on an error in the bottom of the first inning.
Lourdes Gurrel hit a two run double in the eighth inning to put the Jays ahead 5-0.
Baltimore did put a scare into the Blue Jays fans at the top of the ninth inning when Toronto's closer, Ken Giles, gave up a three run homer to Trey Mancini.
Mancini went 1 for 4 and had three RBIs.
Grichuk had two RBIs.
Oriole's starting pitcher, Nate Karns, went just two innings, giving up three hits, no earned runs, no walks, and struck out two batters.
Toronto's starter, Matt Shoemaker, had a really good day on the mound, giving up two hits, no earned runs, a walk, and struck out eight batters in seven inns pitched.
