The BlueJays experienced the positives and negatives of thin margins in their doubleheader against the Red Sox. ✍️: ShiDavidi

end up in close games and as a result, the little things always get magnified when the result doesn’t break right. Hence, it’s always better to evaluate process rather than outcome, because good decisions can backfire and bad decisions can work out. Bottom line, make the right calls often enough and in the aggregate you’ll end up ahead.

But why not let the young slugger face righty Robinson Leyer with the Blue Jays down one and an opportunity to deliver a big blow the previous inning? Fisher, 3-for-18 with four walks heading into that at-bat, isn’t someone you’d want in that spot and saving Guerrero for the team’s final at-bat when the same leverage wasn’t there doesn’t seem like the right play.

More disciplined on the basepaths and a lot more production at the plate made baserunning moot in the first game, as a trio of Blue Jays who’d been cool recently at the plate did the heavy lifting. Even still, nothing comes easy for the Blue Jays, who three times failed to get a shutdown inning right after they scored in the top half of the frame. Eventually, Anthony Bass locked things down in the ninth.

That appeared pivotal when the Blue Jays tacked on three more in the sixth but Merryweather got touched up in the bottom half, as Munoz, who had three hits and three RBIs, doubled in a run before an RBI single from Michael Chavis and a run-scoring groundout for Jose Peraza.The victory comes on a day when the Blue Jays , New York Yankees , who won their first game, and Detroit Tigers , who lost both games, all played doubleheaders.

ShiDavidi Its incredible how you guys cover Charlie! He has no chance with you guys! If he brings Vlady and he strikeout! You will go, why did he bring a righty to face a lefty? Vlady is struggling. Cause Vladdy wasnt even close in the 1st game. Charlie has no shot! But 21-17 Go Charlie!
