Torii Hunter says the Blue Jays’ hits “sound like car crashes”


Torii Hunter was quite descriptive in describing the Blue Jays’ offense after his Twins were dismantled in a four-game series sweep. The Twins scored 12 runs but allowed 26 runs to the Blue Jays, baseball’s best offense. Much of the offense was driven by eight Toronto home runs.

What was it like, according to Hunter? “The way they hit the ball is just unbelievable,” he said, per Sportsnet. “I mean, they hit the ball, sound like car crashes.”

The second half hasn’t been kind to Hunter’s Twins, as they headed into Friday’s action with a 5-14 record since the All-Star break. They lost 5.5 games in that span of time and sat 9.5 games behind the Royals, in second place in the AL Central with a 54-54 record.
