Today in Jays History: Brandon Morrow Throws One-Hitter

12 Years Ago

Time flies

Brandon Morrow threw 8.2 no-hit innings. The Jays would win 1-0.

With two out in the ninth, Evan Longoria hit a ground ball between second and first. Aaron Hill made a super effort to get to the ball and got a glove on it, but it bounced off the glove and into the right field. Even if he had caught the ball, he wouldn’t have a play at first. I’ll put a gif up of the play at the bottom of the post. I think Hill hoped the...

Jays Win a Close One

Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports

Hold on to down Twins 3-2

That was kind of an odd one, but we’ll take the win. The Jays have now split two road series in a row against tough opponents. Not ideal, but good enough to hold their position two games up on Tampa Bay for the first wildcard.

The offence was all over Chris Archer from the beginning, but lots of solid contact only translated into modest scoring. In the first, both Vladimir Guerrero jr. and Alejandro Kirk crushed low liners...

Please win.

We are glad you are here and hope you feel welcome. As a reminder, we have rules.

The really bad news is that Tim Mayza suffered a shoulder dislocation in a collision at the plate.

Leon put down a squeeze bunt with Nick Gordon on third and Sandy Leon at the plate. Mayza came running in and tried to grab the ball and make a tag all in one motion. He didn’t get the ball, and Gordon ran into his right arm. Mayza stayed down on the ground. When he was helped up it looked pretty...

Well, I expect this was coming. George Springer has been put on the IL, retroactive to yesterday. Had he not played Thursday, they could have back-dated it to July 31st.

Otto Lopez gets his spot on the roster.

Get better quick, George.

And we have another roster move before today’s game:

Mitch White, who the Dodgers optioned before we picked him up in trade, has been recalled from Buffalo to make tonight’s start. Trent Thornton has been sent...
