Blue Jays: 5 Straight Wins After 5-2 Triumph at Camden

I just love baseball. It’s amazing, I can sit here in the peace and quiet after being in the sun all day at the beach – with my kids in bed – and enjoy a game between two bad teams.

However, the Blue Jays won their 45th ballgame of the year; and fifth in a row. They’re no longer the pushover that say, the Orioles or Royals are of 2019. And they’re a little interesting. That’s why we have prepared in writing about them a little more. We want to be ahead of the curb here at Diamond Hoggers.

The Blue Jays will eventually be the must-see TV team in all of the game. They’ll become the Braves of 2023 – and when they do – we want to have told a lot of the story. This is just a grain of sand in the hourglass, in terms of the Friday night game that they won 5-2 at Camden Yards with Wilmer Font and Aaron Brooks starting.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. Keeps Hitting

Guerrero followed up his huge Friday night performance with a really nice game again. He singled in the first inning to score Lourdes Gurriel Jr., walked, scored a run, and lined out in his final at-bat. Now, his .268/.343/.455 slash to go along with 13 home runs and 48 RBI is beginning to morph into a nice rookie season. He has to just keep plugging away, and hoping the ball club doesn’t continue to rest him at such a frequent rate. He also made his 12th error of the season on a throw to first. I would like to see him tighten up his defense.

Freddy Galvis

Galvis had three hits, including his 17th home run of the year in the fourth inning that put Toronto ahead 3-0. It’s surprising that the Blue Jays didn’t find a taker at the deadline for Galvis. Even more, he’s a guy in past years that would have been moved in August; but that deadline no longer exists. So he will trudge out his days as an odd part in Toronto.

Final Word

Derek Law got the two-inning save, his first. Bo Bichette had a hit, he’s hit in every game of his career. Brandon Drury hit another bomb, his 12th. Every guy in baseball has a dozen bombs, it seems.
