Following their third series loss, the Jays looked to get back on track against Boston. Unfortunately, much like the lackluster Leafs, they could not muster up the offense needed to earn their first series win of the season.

Game 1

In just his second game as a Blue Jay, Tanner Roark got the call for the first game of the series. Things did not go as planned.

Cavan Biggio opened up the scoring for the jays hitting a homer on a 3-2 pitch to left. In the bottom of the first, Roarks pitches didn’t seem to have much life as he walked his first two batters, got J.D Martinez to fly out, but proceeded to walk the next two batters to tie things up at one.

In the bottom of the second, Alex Verdugo hit a lead off homerun to take a 2-1 lead for the Bo Sox.
The top of the third, Cavan Biggio would single to lead things off for the Jays, who would score off the bat of Bo Bichette who followed up with a double tying things up at two.

The bottom of the third for Roark was the last inning of action for the day as Xander Bogaerts hit a line drive single to center. Mitch Moreland (series MVP) would score Bogaerts off the first pitch he would see in the inning to take a 4-2 lead.

The final Jays run on the day would come as a result of a Vladimir Guerrero Jr. double to right scoring Rowdy Tellez who walked prior.

The Red Sox would tack on one more with a Alex Verdugo homer to left on a 1-0 count, as the Red Sox would win the first of three 5-3.

Roark had a rough day as he pitched three innings, allowing four earned on three hits, walking five.

Game 2

This game was an incredible pitching outing for the Jays as they would allow only four hits on the day in Chase Andersons Blue Jay debut.

The Red Sox would open the scoring early as Anderson would walk his first two batters of the second, and a Christian Vazquez single to center who scored in Bogarets from second to take a early 1-0 lead.
From there on out it was fly balls, ground outs and strikeouts until the seventh.

With Heath Hembree coming in for Philips Valdez Randall Grichuk lead off with an infield single to third. Danny Jansen would also get on base via walk. Lead off man Cavan Biggio would hit a deep fly ball to center which advanced Grichuk to third. Bo Bichette would hit a hard double to the same spot in center to score in grichuk to tie the game at one.

The final run of the day would be Lourdes Gurriel Jr. who lead off the inning taking a walk and eventually score as Rowdy Tellez would ground out with Gurriel on third and Grichuk on first.
Anthony Bass would get his third save on the season filling in for Ken Giles who is still on the IL.
Anthony Kay, who came in relief for Anderson, got the win as he was lights out through 3 1/3, allowing no walks, stirking out three and allowing just two hits.

Game 3

With game three of the series being the rubber match, it was another day the Jays could not muster up a series clinching win, yes I’m talking about the Jays still not the Leafs.

Matt Shoemaker was on the bump for the Jays and pitched a great game for the Jays.

Mitch Moreland opened up the scoring for his second homerun of the series, hittng a solo shot to center in the bottom of the second.

Lead off man Cavan Biggio, whos had a rough go at the plate, replicated Moreland solo shot to tie thingsup at one in the top of the third.

The bottom half of the inning was wild. Jackie Bradley Jr. singled to left to lead off, while Tzu-Wei Lin would get on base via fielding error by Shoemaker. Alex Verdugo would also get safely on base by yet another Shoemaker error, which scored in Bradley Jr to take a 2-1 lead.

In the top of fourth Jays best hitter Teoscar Hernandez would stay hot hitting a loud double to left and would eventually score off of a Vladimir Guerrero Jr. single to center tying the game at two a piece.

Things were quiet until the top of the sixth when Bichette hit a lead off homerun on the first pitch to right to take a 3-2 lead for the Jays. The Red Sox would come back to tie things up in the bottom half as Rafael Devers hit his first bomb of the year on a first pitch shot to center to tie it back up.

With the game tied up at three and the game looking to go to extras, in the bottom of the ninth, Jays rookie Thomas Hatch looked like he had control of the game. Hatch got back to back ground outs before walking Xander Bogaerts, bringing up Mitch Moreland to the plate who has had the Jays number all series.

Moreland would belt his second home run of the game to walk things off for the Red Sox as they would win 5-3.

During this game, Jays fans were shaking their head in disbelief as Jays batters struck out 15 times during the day. They now sit at 5-8 on the season, last place in the east, 29th in on base percentage, and second last in runs scored as per most games played of all teams not postponed. Things need to change or the time may run out for Charlie Montoyo before you know it. Starting Tuesday, the Jays will find a new home in “beautiful” Buffalo.
