Toronto Blue Jays Fall to Detroit Tigers After Heroic Comeback Ends in Heartbreak

The Toronto Blue Jays overcame major delays and took the lead in heroic fashion before collapsing at the very end of the game in an explosive 25-point game against the Detroit Tigers on Sunday afternoon at Comerica Park.

Shaken in the eighth inning by the visitors’ five runs, the local favorites held on to win 14-11 thanks to Matt Vierling’s decisive home run in the second half of the ninth inning at bat.

The outfielder was opposed to the Jays’ best reliever, Ontario’s Jordan Romano, but he did not tremble despite the two outs against his team and the full count of three balls and two strikes. Vierling threw the slippery ball thrown at him by the pitcher into the left field stands. Watch in main video.

So, Spencer Torkelson, Kerry Carpenter and the author of this circuit walk-off crossed the plate to break an 11-11 tie.

It was a heartbreaking outcome for Toronto, who had conceded a five-point lead to the Tigers in the third inning. We had to wait until the eighth to see the Queen City club return to the score, when Daulton Varsho made it 11 to 9 with the help of his 10th shot of the season.

The pitchers’ contribution, however, was clearly insufficient since 17 hits, including four home runs, were allowed to Detroit hitters.

Let’s still note the excellent performance of Vladimir Guerrero Jr., who hit four times to safety in five at-bats. The prize nevertheless goes to Vierling, who stood out with four RBIs and as many hits, including two long balls.

The Tigers (26-27) have won the last three meetings of the four-game series against the Blue Jays (23-29). The latter will head to Chicago to face the White Sox on Monday.
