Shimien’s betrayal Toronto Detroit’s shock defeat
The Toronto Blue Jays once again failed to win the game, ruining their starting good pitching. The veteran’s ridiculous defensive error has become the source of trouble.
Toronto lost 3-5 at home to Detroit at Rogers Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on the 23rd (Korea time). The defeat gave up the series with 1 win and 2 losses. He gave up the home series with the lower-ranked team.
It was a win-win game. Lourdes Guriel Jr.’s right-handed hit led the game 2-1 in the bottom of the eighth inning with two outs and two bases.
All he had to do was block it in the top of the ninth inning. Adam Simbur has been on the mound instead of Jordan Romano, who has been struggling. He caught two outs well, but gave up a double to Willy Castro and stepped down.
Taylor Socido, who took the relief mound, faced pinch hitter Harold Castro. He induced a grounder to second base, and the game had to end as it was. It wasn’t. Second baseman Marcus Simien’s first pitch went short, and first baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr. missed the bounce. In the meantime, the runner on second base stepped on the home plate.
The game was divided in the 11th inning. Kirby Sneed, who was good at two outs, allowed Darz Cameron and Castro to double in a row, allowing two runs, and this became the finishing point.
Detroit’s Cabrera finally hit 500 homers. In the top of the sixth inning, he hit a solo home run against Toronto starter Steven Mats, becoming the 28th batter in Major League history.
