A recap of last night's Toronto/Atlanta game.
There was no joy in Atlanta for the Toronto Blue Jays last night.

The Atlanta Braves hammered the Jays 10-1.

Jay's starting pitcher, Matt Shoemaker, just didn't have the right stuff last night.

Shoemaker lasted 4.2 innings, giving up six hits, six earned runs, three walks and struck out just two batters.

Atlanta went up 2-0 in the bottom of the second inning with back-to-back solo home runs by Matt Adams and Tyler Flowers.

The Jays got a run back at the top of the fifth inning when Anthony Alford drove in Vladmir Guerrero Jr. with a RBI single.

The Braves went ahead 3-1 in the bottom of the fifth when Ronald Acuna scored on a fielder's choice.

Austin Riley broke the game wide open later in the inning with a three run homer.

The Brave weren't done yet.

Dansby Swanson drove in Acuna with a double in the bottom of the eight inning.

Adam Duvall drove in Swanson with a single to make it 9-1 Braves.

Finally in the eighth, Johan Camargo drove in Duvall with a double.

Riley went 1 for 3 at the plate and had three RBIs.

Atlanta's starting pitcher, Max Fried, went six innings, giving up just four hits, an earned run, two walks, and struck out three batters.

Guerrero went two for three at the plate last night.

The Jays play the braves again tonight.
