Delmon Young ties Game 4 with solo blast

4 Comments

Things are getting pretty wild in Game 4.

After the Giants took the lead in the top of the sixth inning on a two-run home run by Buster Posey, Delmon Young tied it up in the bottom of the frame with an opposite-field solo blast off Matt Cain. It was Young’s third home run of the postseason and his eighth in 28 career postseason games.

Andy Dirks followed Young’s blast with a single before Jhonny Peralta put a charge in one to left field, but Gregor Blanco tracked it down at the warning track to end the frame.

Max Scherzer is back out there for the top of the seventh inning at 83 pitches.

Major League Baseball announced on Monday that Blue Jays reliever Roberto Osuna has had his administrative leave extended again, this time through May 28. Osuna’s administrative leave was extended last week. Two weeks ago, he was charged with assaulting a woman on an off-day.

MLB is investigating the incident. Most likely, Osuna will be suspended and fined, which can happen whether or not he is convicted at his court appearance on June 18.

Prior to the incident, Osuna accrued nine saves with a 2.93 ERA anda  13/1 K/BB ratio in 15 1/3 innings. The Jays have lost eight of their last 10 games and one of those two wins was a walk-off, so there haven’t been many save situations. Tyler Clippard was the last Jay to record a save back on May 9.
