With the exception of the first inning, all signs pointed to the Blue Jays dominating this game. They got several guys on base and got a quality start from Chris Bassitt. The only problem was that, for most of the game, the Jays were playing from behind.
With the team being 0-for-5 with RISP, they just needed one big hit to get in front. They got that hit from Bo Bichette in the 7th inning, as his 3-run dinger put the Blue Jays in the lead for good en route to a 4-3 win on Friday night in Anaheim. The win is Toronto’s fourth straight overall, and their fifth consecutive win at Angel Stadium.
