Toronto extends winning streak to four games — Blue Jays notebook

Hernández gives Teoscar-worthy performance to lead Blue Jays to series win over Tigers

Hernández gives Teoscar-worthy performance to lead Blue Jays to series win over Tigers

A slash line of.249/.291/.364 at double-A New Hampshire didn't exactly force Richard Urena's way up to the big leagues.

"Russ is a difference maker", Gibbons said. "They're pitching well and we're not swinging the bats well".

Over nine games and 34 plate appearances with the Blue Jays - a sample size you shouldn't draw conclusions from - he's batting.324/.395/.471. Honestly, this is one of the funniest moments of the Blue Jays season. Sportsnet NOW has you covered. "Like I said, I came in to Morales and pounded the zone down".

The Junior Jays promotion moves to Sunday from Saturday.

He proved it again on Tuesday night.

"I was hoping to get a double-play ball [early], but just couldn't make that quality pitch to get out of there", Britton said. He looks like he belongs.

Every player has their own reasons for wanting to finish the year on a high note, even on a team that is just spinning its wheels. The Tar Heels are last among power-conference teams by surrendering 587 yards per game, while they rank next to last among those 64 schools by allowing 41 points per game. "Not a lot. But some do". "Surprised a little bit, no, but it's nice to go out there and put up good numbers". I could have gone either way, you know. "For me to be here is just a plus so I'm just enjoying it".

"Way better", he said of how he feels at the plate since coming off the disabled list on September 1.

Gibbons does not really care about Martin's year-long struggles at the plate.

I'm pretty sure this is exactly why slow motion instant replay was created.

Maile collected hits in five straight games from May 31-June 4 but knocks have otherwise been hard to come by.

The rally began when Zach Britton (2-1) walked Kevin Pillar to start the ninth, then gave up a line drive single to Teoscar Hernandez.

"Really awesome", Maile said.

Occasionally he'll spin something but you know you're getting a fastball. "I'm trying. I'm trying to show them that I'm still that guy". "There's only a couple of weeks left; it's important to him".

One batter too late, Britton got Darwin Barney to hit a ground ball to second, but the Orioles were able to get just one out at second on a fielder's choice after Jonathan Schoop looked Pillar back to third.

Brayden Bouchey, Orlando Pascual and William Ouellette, recording the final two outs for the save, locked things down as the Canadians won the series 3-1.

The Canadian catcher has been sidelined and out of action for Toronto since August 11.
