Jays Can’t Hit, Lose to Brewers

Published

Blue Jays 1 Brewers 3

I feel like I could just copy and paste from 50% of the recaps we have had this season. “Jays get great pitching from (insert starter’s name here) but lose because they can’t score (insert the swear word of your choice before the word score).

Jose Berrios wasn’t “great,” but he was fine, 5.2 innings, 3 earned. He gave up two home runs, but he was pretty good.

Zach Pop got the last out of the sixth. Brendon Little pitched two scoreless innings, allowing a hit and a walk with three strikeouts. I was kind of irritated when he came into a close game, but he pitched well.

Offensively? Well, we managed all of four hits. Two of them are from Spencer Horwitz (who hasn’t gotten the message that this team doesn’t hit). One from Daulton Varsho (a bunt single) and Alejandro Kirk’s home run. Kirk has been much better at the plate lately, while Jansen has been in a bit of a slump).

And we didn’t take a walk tonight,

0 fors for Schneider, Vlad, Bo, Vogelbach, Springer, and IKF.

Vlad made a terrific catch on a line drive

He also had his bat get caught up in the netting above the Jays dugout. The team seemed more interested in getting the bat back than, you know, PLAYING THE BASEBALL GAME.

No Jays of the Day today. Little had the high mark at .040 WPA.

Other Awards: Vlad (-.142 WPA), IKF (-.113), Berrios (-.086, not fair really), Schneider (-.089, maybe time to move him out of the leadoff spot? But then who are you going to put there Tom? Well, Vlad), and Springer (-.087).

Tomorrow we have Kikuchi (3-5, 3.48) vs. someone. MLB.com has it listed as TBD.
