Cleveland Indians fall to Toronto Blue Jays, 8-7, on two-out single in the ninth inning

Ninth-inning woes doom Cleveland Indians in 8-7 loss to Toronto Blue Jays

He's been hearing the same answer a lot lately.

Kevin Pillar fled from his teammates after he had touched home plate on his game-ending home run Sunday afternoon that gave the Toronto Blue Jays a 3-2 victory over the Seattle Mariners and their fifth straight win.

"Every single guy builds off the guy in front of him", Travis said.

"I'm just getting good pitches and I'm not missing them", said the six-time all-star when asked about his hot streak. Danny Barnes then replaced the Toronto southpaw and put runners on the corners before fanning former Blue Jay Danny Valencia.

The Mariners promoted right-hander Ryan Weber from Triple-A Tacoma to start against the Blue Jays, and he left after 3 2/3 innings with a sore shoulder. He has now hit safely in 17 games as a starter when he singled in the third inning. "He shut them down". Pazos then hit Toronto catcher Luke Maile in the right arm to load the bases.

De Jong was excited to face Toronto, the team that drafted him out of high school in 2012, and the team his cousin Jordan pitched for in 2007. "That little bit of movement in the box can be the difference between you swinging at a pitch". "I think, for me, it's the freedom of not having to worry about it".

Leone was followed by Ryan Tepera, who earned the win after working 2 1/3 innings and striking out two. But the next two batters - Carrera and Travis - couldn't get the job done. "Being able to step into the starting rotation, that's not easy, especially when you're not expecting it". After the four-game series against Seattle, the Blue Jays will cap the homestand with a two-game interleague mini-set against Atlanta starting Monday.

"We all believed it was just a matter of time", Gibbons said.

The 28-year-old Cuban was 5-2 with a 3.88 ERA in 11 games (10 starts) with the Mariners and one game with the Baltimore Orioles last season.

"There's an effect to what he means to our team and on the field", Servais said.

Travis opened the scoring with an RBI groundout in the second.

Bautista had one homer and seven RBIs in 25 games in April. But that group couldn't make the one-run lead hold up. Unbeaten Dallas Keuchel (6-0) became the first six-game victor in the majors, helped by a home run from Carlos Correa. Prior to that abbreviated outing, Sanchez pitched 5 1/3 innings against Baltimore on April 14.

NOTES: Seattle 2B Robinson Cano (right quadriceps strain) missed his second straight game. Cano left Tuesday's win at Philadelphia after four innings with the same injury.

It's okay to have a tough night against Estrada. To make matters only so much worse, backstop Russell Martin was next to find himself amongst those who are banged up as he attempts to come back from nerve damage in his left shoulder. OF Mitch Haniger (right oblique) will swing off a tee for the first time Saturday.

And neither are these Blue Jays, the recent sad sacks of baseball, who are making others take notice of their success. LHP J.A. Happ (elbow) is throwing up to 120 feet on flat ground and will try throwing off a mound next week.

Down in the count, 1-2, left fielder Brandon Guyer fouled off four straight pitches from reliever Dominic Leone before belting a double to the wall in right field, which cleared the bases and gave the Indians a 7-3 advantage.

Mariners: Seattle has yet to name a starter for Saturday.

It has been arguably one of the most challenging starts to a season in recent years for that of the Toronto Blue Jays who have been dealt a handful of injuries all over the field to welcome in the new year at Rogers Centre and beyond.

It's a hard way to live, but that's the reality the Mariners are in.
