The Blue Jays roughed up by the Mariners

The Blue Jays and Mariners finished their three-game streak this afternoon. On this day in Canada, Hyun-Jin Ryu was on the mound for the Jays. Yusei Kikuchi was the right man for Scott Servais.

The Jays wore their beautiful red uniform.

Before the game, Seattle was only half a game away from the Jays in the playoff race.

It was not a hoped-for start to the game for the Jays left-hander. The top three hitters hit the trails via hits. It was quickly 1-0. Then, Mariners fourth hitter Ty France hit a sacrifice arrow down center field to double the lead.

But from their turn at bat, the Blue Jays responded. Marcus Semien hit a home run to close the gap. 2-1 Mariners. The Torontonians second baseman also increased his streak to eight with at least one hit.

The race between him and José Altuve for the All-Star Game is likely to be interesting.

The following round, the Mariners doubled their lead thanks to Jake Fraley’s sixth homer of the season.

Not the best outing for the Blue Jays ace. With a runner on the trails and two outs in the third, Shed Long Jr. slammed a point slap. 5-1 Mariners.

Ryu finally left the game after four innings.

At the end of the eighth, the Blue Jays attempted a comeback. With two outs, Marcus Semien hit a double, then Bo Bichette made him come in with a single. It was 5-2 at the time.

But it was too little too late. The Mariners held on and won the game and the series.

Final mark: 7-2.

The reliever acquired by the Jays a few days ago, Adam Cimber, made his debut and in an innings and a third, he allowed only one hit. His efforts unfortunately did not pay off as the Jays attack was silenced by Kikuchi.
