Morales' HR in 9th lifts Jays over O's 2-1, stops skid

Blue Jay fans hope for a miracle to end losing streak

Blue Jay fans hope for a miracle to end losing streak

The Toronto Blue Jays gave the nod to left-handed pitcher J.A. Happ, but he sustained an injury that forced him to make a premature exit on Sunday. "I felt good (from) my last outing in Norfolk, and I just wanted to come up here and continue to throw the ball well and it worked out for the best".

Morales homered on the first pitch of the inning from Wilson (1-1), who entered with two outs in the eighth and retired Jose Bautista on a flyout to strand a runner at second.

Both teams threatened in the first inning but couldn't push a run across. After being examined by Blue Jays trainer George Poulis, Scott lay down on his back on the turf behind home plate and received further attention from paramedics and Toronto's team physician. He had allowed seven runs on 14 hits through 11.2 innings prior to weekend showdown with the rival Orioles.

Although U.S. allies Japan and South Korea are heartened by Trump's North Korea focus, his softer tack toward Beijing is causing concern.

"I think our offence is going to get better, no question", Atkins said.

The 25-year-old Asher, who was acquired in late March from the Philadelphia Phillies, continued the success he saw at the end of last season, when he posted a 2.28 ERA in five September starts. He allowed one earned run, a walk and three hits before being pulled with one out in the seventh.

Kevin Pillar led off with a single, moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Ezequiel Carrera and advanced to third on a wild pitch. Estrada gave up a leadoff double to Seth Smith but later escaped by fanning Mark Trumbo. Troy Tulowitzki followed up with a single up the middle to advance Bautista to second.

Legal documents show Akilov had asked for Eriksson to be replaced by a Sunni Muslim lawyer, but the court denied his request. Security services have said that he had figured in intelligence reports but they had not viewed him as a militant threat.

Both starters settled into a rhythm after the opening frame.

The veteran Estrada was even more impressive, tossing seven innings while giving up four hits, no runs, three walks, struck out eight with a hit batter and wild pitch.

With the game scoreless in the fifth, Happ threw a ball to Orioles hitter Adam Jones and was noticeably uncomfortable immediately afterwards.

Also, insider Philip Harrison sold 10,134 shares of the business's stock in a transaction dated Thursday, March 16th. JP Morgan maintained Rolls-Royce Holding PLC (LON:RR) on Wednesday, November 25 with "Underweight" rating.

Asher, who was charged with one run over 6 1/3 innings, left the game with two runners on. All players wore No. 42 jerseys for Jackie Robinson Day. The Blue Jays just aren't swinging the sticks right now and with Josh Donaldson on the disabled list, they could have trouble generating runs over the next week. Blue Jays 3B Chris Coghlan, recalled from Buffalo on Friday, was inserted into the lineup because manager John Gibbons thought he deserved a chance to play. He made the start at third base and went 0 for 2 at the plate.
