Shohei Ohtani got the start and gave up a lead off homer to confirmed cheater George Springer. That gave the Blue Jays a lead they’d never surrender.
On the night, Ohtani pitched 6 innings, gave up 5 runs, and struck out 10 Blue Jays.
The score would’ve been worse if not for another stellar defensive play by Brandon Marsh.
An apparent run was taken off the scoreboard in the bottom of the sixth when the Blue Jays successfully challenged a ruling that Matt Duffy had scored prior to the third out being recorded at second base.
Jaime Barria followed a shaky 7th inning by striking out the side in the 8th. He gave up a bomb in the 9th to make the score 6-2.
A little 9th inning rally tightened the score to 6-3.
Between Texas and now Toronto it’s clear the Angels struggle against teams wearing blue. Let’s hope that’s no longer the case when we play Seattle and LA.
