Blue Jays closer Roberto Osuna feeling 'weird,' mentally off

In Friday's 5-4 loss to the Kansas City Royals, the Blue Jays blew a three-run lead in the ninth inning without Osuna, which raised questions about his status.

The Royals regained the lead in the bottom of the inning when Alex Gordon's first triple of the year scored Escobar.

Can the Kansas City Royals stay hot when they host the Toronto Blue Jays once again today at 2:15PM ET? The Blue Jays scored two runs on one hit, a hit batter and a wild pitch in the fourth inning.

Royals starter Jake Junis faced off against St. Bede alum J.A. Happ Friday night in Kansas City. And that is why he was unavailable to pitch Friday.

Vargas had a runner on base every inning before working a 1-2-3 sixth inning.

The Jays have lost 10 of their past 13 at Kauffman, including the games in the 2015 ALCS, which the Royals win.

Blue Jays: RHP Aaron Sanchez (broken nail on middle finger) will throw a minor league rehab game Tuesday for Class A Dunedin.

Happ's three flawless innings to open the game and long string of zeroes on the scoreboard were almost matched by Junis, who worked around a handful of hiccups, though he did give up a pair of runs in the fourth. Joakim Soria (4-2) gave up two runs in the ninth. He struck out six and walked four.




The winning run came off a 93 mile per hour fastball offered up by Grilli that was well over the head of Jays left fielder Dwight Smith Jr. "You're nearly like standing there saying 'I can't believe that just happened.' But, they earned it". It was even double-take worthy, at least how ex-Royals Morales (hit by a pitch) lumbered around the bases - you can time the guy with an hourglass rather than a stopwatch - all the way from first on a Troy Tulowitzki double through the gap in the fourth. Right fielder Jose Bautista and center fielder Kevin Pillar ran into each other as the ball dropped behind them.

"I'm going to try, but nothing is for sure", he said.

"I've had really rough outings lately", Estrada said. "We're just trying to win a ball game". Merrifield greeted Jason Grilli with a double to left to score Escobar and Gordon. In addition, his 66 runs scored during 2012 are the second most in a single season by a Flame.

Kansas City eventually got to Happ in the seventh.

The Royals threatened in the eighth when Merrifield reached, but the Toronto bullpen held.

The Blue Jays challenged the safe call at home, but it was upheld.

The win gets the Royals to the.500 mark at 36-36 for the first time since they were 7-7. "But until we get 'em all in there, we won't know".
