The Blue Jays come out of their torpor


The Toronto Blue Jays snapped a five-game losing streak with a narrow 2-1 win over the Athletics on Wednesday in Oakland.

Trailing after six innings, manager Charlie Montoyo's squad tied the game on their seventh turn at bat. Matt Chapman kicked the ball out of bounds when the trails were unoccupied.

On the next engagement, Bo Bichette imitated his teammate to allow the Jays to take the lead . In both cases, it was their 13th home run of the season.

Arriving on the mound in seventh, Adam Cimber (8-2) added the win to his record. The 31-year-old veteran gave absolutely nothing to the “A’s” in the two innings he played. Coming in relief for the last lap of the crowd favorites at the plate, Jordan Romano collected his 18th save of this campaign. He also passed two of the three batters he faced in the mitt.

Canada's only team in major league baseball will return to action this Friday, as part of the first game of a series of four duels against the Mariners in Seattle.

Burnes' job wasted

In Milwaukee, Brewers starting pitcher Corbin Burnes will have absolutely nothing to be ashamed of in his performance against the Chicago Cubs, but the relievers completely squandered his effort so the visitors won 2-1. .

Burnes was withdrawn after seven innings of work, during which he made 10 opponents bite the dust, he who had not allowed a single point. He thus left his post while his team was leading 1-0, having only offered three hits and one walk to opposing batters. Luckily for him, the loss didn't add to his record.

It went instead to reliever Josh Hader (0-2), who allowed the game-winning run in the ninth inning on a double by P.J. Higgins that allowed Patrick Wisdom to go around the paths.

Brad Boxberger is the reliever who had previously allowed the Cubs to tie the game in the eighth inning, using a single from Rafael Ortega.

Keston Hiura drove in the Brewers' lone run, with a solo long ball.
