Blue Jays' Jay Biagini goes five strong in a win over Seattle

John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

So it was more of the same for each team.

The Cleveland Indians are looking for another series victory tonight in Toronto after a 6-0 win over the Blue Jays Tuesday night.

Salazar allowed five runs on five hits in 2 2/3 innings.

To cap off his night, in the seventh, Smoak even put his power-hitter hat back on with an 409-foot bomb to centre off Sam Gaviglio.

Entering play on Thursday evening against the Mariners, the Blue Jays will be sporting a disappointing 13-21 record, thanks in part to the amount of injuries that the club has already been forced to endure this season.

"I think for a big guy, he's got a nice, low target, he moves well, blocks balls well, he's got good hands, I think I just said that", said the manager, drawing laughs.

It was his first four-RBI game since August 2015 at NY.

Stroman struck out only one batter but did not allow a run in six innings Monday against Cleveland, winning for the first time in four home starts this year.

"I'm not concerned so far", Morales said through team translator, Josue Peley.

The last-place Giants (14-24) won consecutive games for just the second time this season. "I believe that. He knows that".

Another mother cried for nearly an hour to plead that her daughter graduate with her batch, even if she had failed in a subject. Mary Lou Horlacher certainly wasn't flawless - no more than any other mother - but she often sacrificed greatly for my welfare.

"I could see him being a good major-league starter", Gibbons said. Pillar drew a leadoff walk and went to third on a one-out double by Kendrys Morales, and both runners scored when Smoak followed with a single to right.

Liriano struggled to start the season with the Pirates past year, and was eventually traded to the Toronto Blue Jays. It was Estrada's sixth quality start of the season.

Mark Reynolds homered and drove in three runs as Colorado roughed up Chicago's Jake Arrieta in the first game of a day-night doubleheader. "He's going to give us a chance to win the ballgame". Toronto finished with nine hits. 177 with a.589 on-base plus slugging percentage and three homers.

His batting average rose to.273 after his three-hit performance. Last season he showed a four pitch mix, but relies heavily on his fourseam fastball and slider combination.

Aaron Loup, Jason Grilli and Leonel Campos threw one inning of scoreless relief apiece for Toronto. Those two cashed after a hit from Lonnie Chisenhall.

With Thursday's news lefty Francisco Liriano was heading to the disabled list with shoulder inflammation, the Blue Jays now have more than $83 million on the DL, essentially half their opening-day payroll. Seattle claimed RHP Casey Lawrence on waivers from Toronto, recalled LHP Zac Curtis from Double-A Arkansas and optioned RHP Dan Altavilla to Triple-A Tacoma.

The Blue Jays tacked on two more runs in the eighth off James Pazos, who got minimal help from his teammates on defense with an error, a missed tag on a pickoff and a double steal.

Bautista broke a 2-all tie with a drive into the center-field party deck off Nick Vincent (1-1) in the seventh.

Mariners: 2B Robinson Cano (right quadriceps) was scratched from the starting lineup.

As efficient as Bolsinger was in his start, the Jays were undone by bases on balls. Third baseman Darwin Barney knocked down Jean Seagura's grounder and got an out while keeping Taylor Motter at third, and left fielder Steve Pearce ended the inning with a full-length diving catch on Ben Gamel.
