Barney noted that last season the Blue Jays looked to be in a dire spot after a 2-1 19-inning loss to Cleveland on Canada Day but they turned their season around for a run to the American League Championship Series.
Listening to Chris Sale talk after he led the Boston Red Sox to a 7-1 win over the Blue Jays on Canada Day was nearly as scary as watching his dominating performance on the mound earlier in the afternoon.
Sale (11-3) struck out 11, boosting his major league-leading total to 166. Two batters later, Dustin Pedroia hit a two-run double.
Harrell loaded the bases in the ninth before Bogaerts hit a single to shallow left field to score two more runners and make it 7-0. Hanley Ramirez had three hits. Still, he got through the frame and improved to 7-4 on the year. In the opener, Nicholas Castellanos tripled to break a seventh-inning tie.
Betts, who also had an RBI single in the second inning, homered again in the sixth, this time a two-run shot, his 15th.
The win on Saturday moved them to 11 games above.500 for the first time this season and they've won four of their past five games.
Since giving up five earned on eight hits in 4.1 innings against the Tigers, Pomeranz has just three earned over three starts, a span of 17.2 innings. It was his 22nd homer of the season and his 10th in June, the most he has ever hit in one month. The Cubs' fourth loss in five games dropped them to 40-41, well off their pace from a year ago (51-30) when they were on their way to an NL Central title and a World Series championship. His history would indicate that he's a builder, not a buyer, and we could see that philosophy start to take shape in Toronto sooner than later.
Braves 4, Athletics 3: Dansby Swanson hit a tiebreaking double off closer Santiago Casilla in the ninth inning to drive in Danny Santana - one of two unearned runs scored by Atlanta - and the Braves held on for the win. He'll carry a 4.50 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 56/18 K/BB ratio into a hard matchup against the Red Sox at home on Sunday.
Blaine Boyer (1-1) pitched the 10th for the win and Craig Kimbrel got his 23rd save in the almost five-hour opener of the three-game series between division rivals. They came off a 3-4 road trip to lose two of three to the Baltimore Orioles at Rogers Centre. Boston is 12-0 this season when stealing multiple bases, and has won 13 such games going back to last season.
Boyer ended the inning on Smoak's popout to second and Tulowitzki's foul out to first. Smoak's blast was the 1,070th Major League Baseball home run in June, breaking the previous mark set in May 2000. Astros pitcher David Paulino has received an 80-game suspension without pay after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance. Roberts shoved Green during an argument in the first inning.
