In a sequence conceived as a race to get things back on track, the visit Toronto blue jay attack first, leave Pittsburgh Pirates still searching

Toronto won Friday 4-0 to end a five-game losing streak. The pirateIt’s my turn to lose the fifth game in a row

Both teams got off to a strong start in April before things turned into a new month.

The Blue jay lost on Friday after seven goalless innings from Chris Bassitt and George Springer’s two-legged game

“George is what gets us going,” said Toronto manager John Schneider. “He knows that well. We know that too.”

Springer said after the game that he was battling illness but had no encouragement from his teammates.

Springer says: “I have a wonderful team… of people who have supported me all this time. “They’re encouraging me to keep going.”

The pirate Not only were they held back against four hits on Friday, but they couldn’t bet those hits and four goes into anything. That’s largely due to some costly fundamental decisions

In the first match, Ji Hwan Bae was eliminated trying to take third place with the headman Bryan Reynolds on the disc. In the second, Rodolfo Castro was sent off at home trying to score from third on a wild surface. And Carlos Santana tried to score the first of Castro’s singles in the fourth round but was sent off.

“We were too aggressive and tried to create too many things in the first place and ran into some bad things,” pirate manager Derek Shelton says

“Annoyingly, we just can’t find our track. We’re a bit out of sync and we have to get back in sync. … We need to get our time back.”

Both teams are seeing injuries increase.

Before Friday’s game, Toronto put the reliever Zach Pop (right hamstring strain) on the 15-day IL and added Jay Jackson to the list.

According to Shelton, Pittsburgh’s designated player Andrew McCutchen suffered a late scratch on Friday from a left ankle sprain and will be further evaluated on Saturday.

That came not long after that pirate starter Vince Velasquez was on IL 15 days because of right elbow inflammation. He was replaced by Chase De Jong, who left IL and threw a goalless half on Friday

In the eighth inning, Bae left Friday’s game after he jumped out of the batter’s box by surprise.

Shelton said of Bae: “His ankle grabbed him.

Saturday, Toronto is scheduled to start with right-hander Jose Berrios (2-3, 5.29 ERA), with Pittsburgh set to start with right-hander Johan Oviedo (2-2, 4, 78 ERA).

Berrios, in his most recent game, gave up five runs and 11 hits in five thirds on Monday against Boston without receiving a decision. He dropped a total of three runs in his previous three starts.

Berrios is leading 1-0 with an ERA of 3.72 in the previous two career starts pirate

Oviedo conceded Sunday’s loss in Washington as he missed seven runs and nine hits in two-and-a-half – the worst game of the whole season.
