Aaron Sanchez (1-1, 1.69, 1.38) vs. Kyle Gibson (0-0, 7.71, 2.04)


The Blue Jays won a road game!  They won despite a TOOTBLAN from Randal Grichuk and a baserunning blunder where a batter (Chris Brandon Drury) lost track of the count and led a baserunner (Teoscar Hernandez) into walking to second base when it was actually ball 3.  Oh well, Teoscar made up for it with a booming, go-ahead 3-run HR.

Funniest thing for me was seeing Charlie Montoyo in the dugout screaming epithets and kicking around with his foot in his first real public display of emotion.  I kinda imagined it going something like this:

Tonight's game 2 features Aaron Sanchez looking to continue his solid start to the season while going up against Kyle Gibson.


Remember all the hubbub during Saturday's game when Blake Snell was pulled after only 82 pitches and six innings with a 1-0 lead against the Jays?  Well, well, well... it seems he was just put on the 10-day IL with a broken toe.  Related, hmm?
