MLB: Blue Jays rebound against A’s

After losing the first two games of a four-game series to the Oakland Athletics, the Toronto Blue Jays returned to the winning streak with a 9-4 win on Wednesday night.

Delayed 3-2, the Jays scored five runs early in the eighth inning to stop the two-back streak. Jonathan Davis was the first to cross the plate in this set when Lou Trivino dropped a pitch. Teoscar Hernandez and Randal Grichuk then produced two more runs with singles. This same Hernandez crossed the plate a few moments later on a sacrificial cushion from Cavan Biggio then Grichuk joined him a few moments later thanks to a rolling from Lourdes Gurriel.

Grichuk and Hernandez had also produced one run each of the singles in the first inning. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. raised the final score to 9-4 in the ninth with a double that produced two runs. The gain went to the record of reliever Jordan Romano (3-1), who took charge of the seventh round.

On Thursday afternoon, in the last game of the series, the starters will be Hyun Jin Ryu and Mike Fiers.

Springer back on the injured list

The Toronto Blue Jays have benefited from the presence of George Springer for only four games.

The Toronto organization indicated Wednesday night shortly before its duel with the Oakland Athletics that the outfielder was on the injured list. He’s bored with his quadriceps. Springer had been sidelined for the start of the season with a similar injury.

In just four games with the Jays this season, Springer has hit two homers and produced three runs. He posted a .200 batting average.

Stanton shines against the Astros

Giancarlo Stanton hit a homerun and produced four runs on Wednesday, steering the New York Yankees to a 6-3 victory over the Houston Astros.

Stanton struck to safety in the 11th straight game.

He’s been at 17 hits in six games, taking his average from .205 to .314.

That includes a long ball in each of his last two games.

Aaron Hicks broke the tie with a one-run single in the eighth, and the Yankees went on for a fifth straight win.

Very reliable this year, the Yankees relievers have not allowed a hitting in the last three innings.

New York prevailed for the 10th time in 13 games.

Stanton leveled at 3-3 with a one-run double in the fifth against Ryne Stanek, who entered the game.

Aaron Judge was less successful: struck out five times, he left six runners on the trails.

Thursday afternoon, Gerrit Cole (4-1) will face Houston for the first time since leaving the Astros to accept the nine-year $ 324 million offer from the Yankees, ahead of the 2020 season. The Astros will bet over Lance McCullers Jr. (2-1).

The defeat went to Brooks Raley (0-2), the victory to Jonathan Loaisiga (3-1). Aroldis Chapman earned a seventh save.
