Unfortunately, the hottest offense would not be cooled as the Mariners smacked five home runs in route to a 13-5 win. Sending Homer Bailey to the mound, the 32-year old veteran would be asked to stifle the bats that found themselves among the all-time greats in home runs through the first 11 games. Needing an offensive spark out of the gates, Kansas City wasted no times in ending their eight-inning scoreless streak. In the bottom of the first, Whit Merrifield extended his hitting streak to 29 games, now only one behind Hall of Famer George Brett. On the ensuing at-bat, Adalberto Mondesi clubbed an RBI-double into the left-center gap, giving the Royals a quick 1-0 lead. Alex Gordon continued his impressive start to the season, bringing home Mondesi on a line drive to right field and spotting Bailey some much needed run support before his counterpart Felix Hernandez could even record an out. Strangely enough , after having the training staff attend to him during the opening inning, Hernandez was forced out of the game due to “virus-like-symptoms” before he even reached the second. Back on the field, the early advantage the Royals enjoyed quickly evaporated in the top half of the second. 5’9, 250 lb Dan Vogelbach drove his fifth home run of the season into the empty bleachers in right field and shortstop Dylan Moore followed it up by launching his first major league home run above the Mariners bullpen in left, knotting the game back up at two apiece. Kansas City manufactured two more runs in the bottom of the third on another Gordon single and a Chris Owings dribbler through the left side, giving him his third hit on the season. The 4-2 lead stood pat up until the top of the fifth when Bailey struggled to put away Mariners slugger Domingo Santana, who came in as the league leader in RBI’s. On a 3-2 pitch with Mart铆n Maldonado set up low and away, Bailey came high and tight with a 95 mph heater. The four-seam fastball was dropped over Hunter Dozier at third, once again squandering the slim lead the Royals could surmount.From the moment the lead vanished for the second time in the night, the beat down commenced. A questionable decision to send Bailey back out on 90+ pitches for the sixth inning resulted in a leadoff home run by Edwin Encarnacion and ultimately chased Bailey out for good. Tim Hill first entered from the bullpen but wound up hitting a batter and giving up an RBI single to Dee Gordon while only facing three batters. When Kevin McCarthy cam into the game, however, the floodgates burst open as an RBI double by Santana and a second home run by Encarnacion in the same inning, effectively put an end to the Royals hopes of winning their first game in April. The Mariners would plate eight that inning to make it an insurmountable 12-4 lead. Each team would add a run to make the final score 13-5.Game two will be played tomorrow night with another 7:15 start. Jakob Junis will go toe-to-toe with Marco Gonzalez, who has already collected three wins alone on the year Willie McCovey Jersey , more than the Royals total in 2019. On the bright side, Merrifield will look to tie George Brett for the club record of 30 straight games with a base hit. TORONTO — The Tampa Bay Rays refuse to go away in the American League wild-card race and the Toronto Blue Jays will play a big role in how long they remain in contention.The Rays and Blue Jays play seven games in the remaining regular-season schedule starting Thursday with the opener of a four-game series at the Rogers Centre.The teams finish their schedules with three games against each other at Tropicana Field. The Rays are 9-3 against the Blue Jays this season.Article continues below ...The Rays defeated the Texas Rangers 9-3 on Wednesday afternoon but remain 5 1/2 games behind Oakland for the second wild-card spot. The Athletics routed the Los Angeles Angels 10-0 on Wednesday night. Tampa Bay had gained 3 1/2 games on the A’s in the previous four days.The Blue Jays had a four-game winning streak end Wednesday night with a 2-1 loss to the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards.Tampa Bay is a major league best 31-13 since the beginning of August.“We need help, there’s no doubt about that,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said. “I like the way the guys have continued to go about their business day to day. That’s very cliche, but sometimes you have to go with that and control what you can control.”The Rays (85-66) will open Thursday night with right-hander Ryne Stanek (2-3, 2,49 ERA), who will pitch about an inning and will be followed by right-hander Yonny Chirinos (4-5, 3.89), who is expected to work most of the innings. The Blue Jays (69-83) will start right-hander Sam Gaviglio (3-8, 5.25 ERA).Tampa Bay has won five in a row, 14 of 17 in September and 23 of their past 28.The players are enthusiastic about their postseason chances despite the long odds against them.“I think everybody in this clubhouse is just getting ready for a wild-card game,” pitcher Tyler Glasnow told the Tampa Times.The Rays have some reinforcements joining them Thursday with Triple-A Durham having ended its season.Outfielder Austin Meadows, left-hander Hoby Milner and right-handers Chih-Wei Hu and Austin Pruitt will join the team in Toronto.Stanek has been used frequently as the opener this season and has made 26 starts with 28 relief appearances. He is the first pitcher with at least 25 relief appearances and 25 starts in a season since the Philadelphia Phillies Hugh Mulcahy (26 starts Mel Ott Jersey , 30 relief appearances) in 1937. He is the first American League pitcher with a 25-25 season since Eddie Rommel (31-25) of the Philadelphia Athletics in 1923.Stanek has opened four games against the Blue Jays this season and has made one relief appearance against them. He is 0-0 and has allowed no runs, two hits and one walk while striking out seven in six innings.Chirinos has made one appearance against Toronto this year, allowing four hits and one run over seven innings of relief on Sept. 3.Gaviglio will be making his third start of the season against the Rays and the fourth of his career. He is 0-2 with a 6.23 ERA aginst Tampa Bay this season, and 1-2 with a 4.61 ERA against the Rays for his career.In three starts after winning Aug. 21 for the first time since May 25, he is 0-2 with a 7.43 ERA.The Blue Jays have been using September to break in prospects from the minor leagues and that means catcher Russell Martin has barely played in September. He missed some time because he was on paternity leave, but mostly the Blue Jas are taking a good look at young catchers Danny Jansen and Reese McGuire. Martin understands.“We have a couple of young catchers that need work,” Martin told reporters Wednesday. “They probably haven’t played that many seasons deep into September, so it kind of gives them an idea of what it’s like, how it taxes your body playing that extra month. But the obvious answer is, I love to compete. I do love to play, but I just feel in this type of situation, what’s best for the team is to see what the young players can do.”
