The Toronto Blue Jays Fall in Overtime Against the Seattle Mariners

The overtime was fatal for the Toronto Blue Jays, who allowed no less than five points during the 10e inning to be defeated 6-1 in front of their fans at the Rogers Center by the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday.

For a rare time this season, the pitchers of the representatives of the Queen City were solid during the nine regulation innings. Starter Yusei Kikuchi allowed only three hits in six innings of work, but the last relievers were shaken up.

In the 10th inning, Tim Mayza (0-1) first allowed a two-run home run to Cal Raleigh before allowing two men to hit the trails thanks to walks. It didn’t get any better with the entry into play of Mitch White. Ty France and Mitch Haniger hit a profitable double and single respectively at his expense.

These are just crumbs that were left for the Jays hitters. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. broke the ice for the local favorites by hitting a long solo ball in the seventh inning past pitcher Logan Gilbert.

“Vlad junior” made short work of this ball, sending it out at a speed of 114.3 mph. It’s not his fastest home run in the majors, having twice hit over 117 mph in 2022, but the distance was there, at 459 feet.

The Dominican also took his time to watch the ball land on the balcony. It was his third shot of the season.

The Blue Jays (6-7) never had the lead despite Kikuchi’s nine strikeouts. This series of three matches against the Mariners (5-8) ended in a fishtail, since John Schneider’s men had won the first two duels.

Toronto will host the Colorado Rockies three times starting Friday.
