The Toronto Blue Jays Report

by Bill Chuck on September 19, 2013

The Yankees and Blue Jays have played two games and the Yanks have been held scoreless for 17-of-18 innings. Fortunately for the Yanks, they scored four runs in the 8th inning last night. Unfortunately, for the Blue Jays those four runs and a four-out Mariano Rivera save enabled the Yankees to win last night, 4-3.

With the loss, the Blue Jays clinched a losing season for the second consecutive year. The Jays certainly owe the Yankees for a good portion of this year’s ignominy going 4-14 against the New York this season.
