The only Canadian major league baseball team had also bowed out on Saturday against these same rivals, this time by a score of 5 to 4.
Everything went wrong in the second round in the duel of the day for Charlie Montoyo's men. Gunner Jose Berrios (5-4) took the loss after a disastrous outing, in which he allowed eight earned runs on eight hits in just two and two-thirds innings of work.
Rowdy Tellez was his biggest torturer. The first baseman hit two long balls on Berrios' offings, driving in four runs.
The meeting had however started in the best way for the Jays. Alejandro Kirk allowed George Springer and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. to go around the trails in the first inning thanks to a home run.
On the crowd favorite side, Chi Chi Gonzalez fulfilled his tenure as a starting pitcher by limiting the visitors to four hits and three earned runs in four innings at the mound. However, it was Jandel Gustave (1-0) who added a victory to his record, he who was almost flawless in two sets.
The Blue Jays will return to Rogers Center on Monday for the first of a three-game series against the Boston Red Sox.
