In the 6th, the Spanish Conquistador (joking) doubled to RF and came around to score on Manuel Beltre’s two-run triple, 8-1. He walked to load the bases in the 7th inning and came home on a Sac Fly off the bat of Beltre.

Lover of all things Toronto Blue Jays. Blue Jays MiLB fanatic. I strive for average while stumbling onto above average. Rogers isn’t cheap. Baseball is a business. Your right, but I’m more right.
