Blue Jays recall Danny Barnes from triple-A Buffalo and option Deck McGuire

Blue Jays recall Danny Barnes from triple-A Buffalo and option Deck McGuire

The Blue Jays, on the other hand, are 21-21 SU and have gone 21-20 ATS.

Happ (5-3) struck out 10 and walked none while pitching two-hit ball. The under is 5-0 in the last five meetings between these two teams in NY and is 4-0 in the last four meetings between these two teams overall. "He's one of our best infielders, but he's our catcher if you want to know the truth". He was on base five times, with the home run, a single, and three walks. Wilmer Flores had two hits.

The big lefty was exactly what the doctor ordered for the scuffling Jays. He has had one quality start in his past five outings.

"I've been looking for that", Gibbons said after the game. "Yeah, he held it together". However, he rolled a 6-4-3 double play to get himself through five innings. He can dominate and that's what he did today. At the same time we needed to demonstrate that. The umpires called for the grounds crew to work on the soaked infield with one out in the bottom of the third which delayed the game for 18 minutes. I think we demonstrated that and still felt the same way. Toronto struggled on the mound with starter Joe Biagini giving up four runs on four hits and three BB over 4.2 frames.

Wheeler is 0-3 with a 9.57 ERA in three starts at Citi Field this season and 8-18 with a 5.31 ERA in 33 career starts at home.

Syndergaard received a ND in a 3-2 loss to Colorado last time out with two out over six frames.Toronto are 9-1 in their last 10 Tuesday. Jay Bruce is 3-for-15 with a homer and eight strikeouts.

Hawaii's Kilauea volcano goes 'ballistic'

Other than that, though, it was a forgettable affair at Citi Field as Toronto picked up its first win in Queens in 13 all-time tries.

Juan Lagares led off the eighth inning with a triple to right, for his fourth hit of the game. He also had two hits.

The Blue Jays' third three-run inning of the afternoon came in the ninth, thanks to a three-run blast by substitute Richard Urena. Toronto has an over/under record of 17-19-5. Danny Barnes, recalled from Triple A Buffalo at Deck McGuire's expense earlier in the day, surrendered a pair of hits, including a two-out solo homer by Brandon Nimmo in the ninth. Josh Donaldson, Smoak and Hernandez combined for eight RBIs, five hits and five runs. Happ led off the inning by walking. The inning included a single by Jose Reyes that loaded the bases for Syndergaard and snapped New York's 0-for-24 slide with runners in scoring position.

Viewed through that lens, the Blue Jays got far more Dickey than they did from Cone, while Kent did far more in his career than Syndergaard has, at least so far.

The Mets were shut out seven times last season. Morales pitched at a high level in his native Cuba. Martin became the seventh Toronto shortstop this season.
