A recap of last night's Detroit/Toronto Game One.
The Toronto Blue Jay's were basically silent last night.

The Jays left seven runners on base in a 4-1 loss to the Detroit Tigers.

"The whole game we had chances to score," said Jay's manager, Charlie Montoyo at the postgame press conference. "We didn't execute, (runs)."

Jay's starting pitcher, Robbie Ray was definitely not to blame for last night's loss. He pitched his heart out for eight innings, allowing an earned run and struck out 11 batters.

Ray's counterpart, Tyler Alexander was just as good last night.

Alexander pitched six innings and struck out six batters.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. put Toronto ahead 1-0 in the bottom of the fourth inning with his 36th home run of the season.

At the top of the eighth inning, Zach Short scored on a wild pitch to tie the game 1-1.

At the top of 10th inning, Harold Castro, Jonathan Schoop, and Jeimer Candelario all hit RBI singles for Detroit.

Game Two was played earlier today.

I'll have a game recap tomorrow.
