It is no secret that the Toronto Blue Jays are having problems this season. A team that was seen to be an offensive juggernaut sits last in the AL in runs scored. However, on Tuesday night the Jays welcomed the best team in baseball to the park, the Houston Astros. With the Astros up 1-0, shortstop Marwin Gonzalez smokes a liner right at third base which had double written all over it.
Luckily, Josh Donaldson makes and outstanding diving catch and throws to first base from one knee for the out. It seems as if this flash of defensive brilliance sparked the Blues Jays as they batted a round and brought home six runs over the next two innings to take the lead 7-2.
Roberto Osuna would do what he does best and close it out in the 9th inning only throwing nine pitches. I swear this kid is the next Mariano Rivera. The Jays would defeat the Astros 7-4.
Hopefully, this is a sign of good things to come for our blue birds.
