Settling the Scores: Friday’s results

31 Comments

If the Blue Jays are going to make a move on the Yankees for the AL East, this is the weekend in which they should get moving. And so far, so good: Jose Bautista homered with one out in the 10th inning to give the Jays their sixth straight win and to pull them to within three and a half games of the Bronx Bombers.

All the runs scored in the game came on homers: Bautista’s in the tenth and one each from Mark Teixeira and Josh Donaldson. The dingers not withstanding, it was a pitching duel, with R.A. Dickey allowing only one run over seven innings and Nate Eovaldi allowing the same while pitching into the seventh. Dickey was the second knuckleballer the Yankees faced in two days and they’re likely happy to be done with them.

Of course, they have to face David Price this afternoon, and it’s not like that’s leaps and bounds better, right?
