Indians: Shane Bieber Shuts Out Jays in Toronto

[Box Score]

It was good to get to see Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and the young Blue Jays on regular television here in Ohio, and not needing to mess with spotty for a few days. However, on this night an ace-in-the-making made quick work of the Blue Jays.

Indeed, Bieber was in control and is looking like the game’s next great arm. First, he struck out 15 hitters in Cleveland back in May. Then, he won the All-Star Game MVP at Progressive Field. Now, people will say it was only the Blue Jays. But Bieber took it to them in striking out ten.

Moreover, the Blue Jays only got one hit. Eric Soogard doubled, and was the only guy to keep Bieber from perfection. Bieber is 10-3 on the season.

As for Vladdy Jr., he had a few things to his credit. He didn’t strike out – the only Blue Jay not to go down on strikes in the entire lineup. Also, he drew a walk to keep the on-base streak going. Finally, he hit one ball hard.

Other than that, Greg Allen and Jose Ramirez were in the mix for Cleveland as well as Francisco Lindor.

In other news, this could have been Marcus Stroman’s final start at Rogers Centre.
