Blue Jays Fall to Tigers 6-2 after Winning Streak

After two consecutive victories of 9 to 2 and 9 to 1, Wednesday and Thursday, the attack of the Toronto Blue Jays fell back into its faults, Friday against the Tigers in Detroit.

Indeed, the members of the Queen City club were never in the match, suffering a 6-2 loss. The Blue Jays’ winning streak thus ended at two. John Schneider’s men had won four of their last five outings before Friday’s match.

In the second inning, Colt Keith hit the first bomb of his career in the majors to give his team a 1-0 lead. However, it was during the fourth set that the game really got complicated for the visitors, as the local favorites scored three points to take a 4-0 advantage.

Then, in the fifth inning, Kerry Carpenter hit the nail on the head with a two-run home run.

Toronto starter Alek Manoah (1-2) had a tough night, giving up all the points the Tigers scored. In just over four innings on the mound, the 26-year-old allowed five hits and two home runs, also striking out four batters. His opposite number, Kenta Maeda (2-1), was perfect in five innings pitched, conceding four hits.

Toronto avoided a shutout in the final inning of the game when Davis Schneider and Alejandro Kirk each singled.

The Blue Jays will be back in action on Saturday against the Tigers.

The Twins continue

The Minnesota Twins, the team of Quebecer Édouard Julien, scored a third straight win thanks to a 3-2 victory against the Texas Rangers.

Moreover, Julien stood out, he who finished the game with an RBI and a hit in three at-bat appearances. Alex Kirilloff, for the Twins, and Corey Seager, for the Rangers, each hit a home run.
