Toronto CF Kevin Pillar suspended 2 games for anti-gay slur

With the Braves leading 8-3 in the eighth inning, Bautista riled the Braves when he homered off Braves reliever Eric O'Flaherty and flipped his bat.

Needless to say, things are going well for the Blue Jays' battery on Thursday night and as for Stroman: you know it's your night when.

Stroman had a pinch-hit double against St. Louis on April 25 but was shocked by his opposite-field homer on an 0-2 pitch from Teheran in the fourth inning. Don't panic. Maybe I'm stubborn, but I still won't sit him next week at home against the Pirates.

Darrell Ceciliani, recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday, had a run-scoring double in the first and a two-run homer in the third before leaving with a left shoulder injury.

To Teheran's credit, if he was asked to throw at Bautista (he nearly certainly was), then he handled it as well as he could be expected.

So yeah, there was plenty to unpack from the Blue Jays' 9-0 romp Thursday in the finale of what became a highly charged two-and-two interleague series after a Bautista bat flip a night earlier caused the dugouts to clear a second time. Loney, 33, hit.265 with nine homers in 100 games for the Mets previous year and was released from a minor league contract with Detroit this month.

The Braves are looking for help at first base after losing Freddie Freeman for about 10 weeks due to a broken left wrist.

Pillar, one of MLB's best defensive center fielders, shouted at Atlanta's Jason Motte after striking out to end the seventh inning on what he felt was a quick pitch.

Ruiz, primarily a third baseman, played in five games with Atlanta last season.

Kendrys Morales drove in two runs with four hits.

Freeman came into the night hitting.343 and tied for the major league lead with 14 homers.

Teheran suffered through another ugly start at SunTrust Park, allowing nine hits, including three homers. "The best possible way to get me out is to throw inside". "I didn't do my job". I don't know what it is here.

Wednesday won't go down as the highlight of the Blue Jays' season, but thanks to the actions of the club and several players, it'll likely be a day that's forgotten sooner than later.

In the fifth, Toronto squandered a chance for a big inning when Ezequiel Carrera was called for interference for running into Peterson, who was trying to field Justin Smoak's slow grounder toward third base.

"Those guys have taken it to us the last couple days", Gibbons said.

If Bautista had stopped at first base Wednesday, the stage was set for a potentially similar incident with Peterson, a former college football defensive back and linebacker who wasn't about to back down if the situation had gone next-level.

The only other homer by a Blue Jays pitcher was by Mark Hendrickson on June 21, 2003 at Montreal.

The Braves addressed their lingering ill-will toward Bautista immediately (Texas Rangers, take note), as Teheran missed the right-fielder with a 94.8-m.p.h. fastball that wasn't in quite enough before getting him on the leg with 95.6 m.p.h. the next pitch.
