There have been some dark days at Rogers Centre this season, but Sunday was right up there with any of them. Not only did the Blue Jays drop a bizarre ...

Blue Jays' hitter Bo Bichette gets the force out on Cleveland Guardians' Myles Straw while trying to turn a double play during the third inning in Toronto, Sunday, Aug. 27, 2023.Watch on

Cleveland scored four in the 11th inning to win 10-7 and take the series. Earlier, in the eighth after the Jays had rallied to reclaim the lead, Tim Mayza, one of the best relievers in baseball all season, couldn’t get it done. But more importantly, the Jays lost star shortstop Bo Bichette, the league’s hits leader, to right quad tightness, while standout defensive third baseman Matt Chapman also exited due to right middle-finger inflammation.

It felt early on that the Jays would keep swinging hot bats. Guerrero destroyed an 87 mph offering from one-time star pitcher Noah Syndergaard, but Toronto didn’t manage another hit until Springer hit a homer of his own in the fourth and didn’t get a third until Springer lined an infield single off Syndergaard in the sixth. Schneider followed with a hit that just cleared the wall in left and it briefly felt like the rookie had done it again.
