Game Wrap 5/9/2016: Blue Jays 3 Giants 1

This game was not as close as the score would indicate as the Giants offense could not sustain an attack against BJ's starters Aaron Sanchez while Jake Peavy sweated his way through 112 pitches in 5 innings.  Key Lines:

Jake Peavy- 5 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 5 BB, 6 K's.  ERA= 8.47.  Peavy did a pretty good job of channeling Houdini on the mound, but if you walk a batter an inning against this lineup, you will eventually pay the price and 3 runs was all the Blue Jays needed against this anemic offense.

Albert Suarez- 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K's.  ERA= 0.00.  Suarez was the siver lining for the second straight game and are they really going to send him out when Kontos gets back?  Heck, Suarez had two dominant starts for Sacramento before he was called up.  We could see him in the rotation before too long!


With the Loss, the Giants remained tied for the lead in the NL West with the Dodgers evening out the percentage points at .500 as the Dodgers lost to the Mets.  The D'Backs outscored the Rockies to move into a 3'rd place tie, 1 game behind.  The Padres were idle to remain in last place, 3 games off the pace.


Matt Cain gets another chance to turn his season around tonight facing JA Happ.
