Toronto Splits A Pair With Miami
via: Blue Jays.

After dropping their first game of the series, the Blue Jays took over Marlins Park, and defeated Miami 2-1.

Toronto left-hander pitcher, Hyun-Jin Ryu (3-1) earned the win, allowing one only run and five hits in over six innings with two walks and eight strikeouts.

The Blue Jays got a solid effort by their bullpen, as they got scoreless relief pitching from A.J. Cole, Rafael Dolis and then Anthony Bass, who earned his fourth save of the season.

On the other hand, Marlins rookie Sixto Sanchez (1-1) took the loss in just his third major-league start and appearance. He allowed six hits, no walks and one run in seven innings, striking out five.

Rowdy Tellez broke his bat but still lofted a soft single to center. Gurriel would then make the difference, as he hammered a hanging slider for his fifth homer of the season to give Toronto the two-run lead.

Toronto will now kickoff a five-game series against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. Then, they will proceed to host the New York Yankees at Western New York.
