MLB: Blue Jays’ Complete Collapse Against the Mariners


The Seattle Mariners came back from a seven-point deficit to beat the Toronto Blue Jays 10-9 in a wild second game on Saturday to knock the Canadian club out of the playoffs.

In the ninth inning, Cal Raleigh doubled off Blue Jays reliever Jordan Romano and scored the game-breaking run via Adam Frazier, who slammed a double into the right field corner.

“It was a heavyweight duel and a rollercoaster game,” said Blue Jays receiver Danny Jansen. Both teams conceded throughout the game. It was a tough game. ,

George Kirby got the save, and the Mariners completed the best-of-three series sweep in front of a packed and stunned Rogers Center.

Teoscar Hernandez scored twice to help the Blue Jays take an 8–1 lead after five innings. However, Carlos Santana’s three-point slapshot in the sixth, where the Mariners trailed by four, and a four-pointer in the eighth allowed the Mariners to tie the game.

“It’s really tough,” admitted Blue Jays slugger Teoscar Hernandez. I can’t say anything that will make me feel better for a while. ,

It was the second time in three years that the Blue Jays failed to win a game in the first round. The Queen City club was swept by the Tampa Bay Rays in 2020 and missed the playoffs last year.

The Mariners would face the Houston Astros in a best-of-five series. The confrontation will begin in Texas on Tuesday.

Blue Jays players must empty their lockers after a dizzying and surprising fall. This is another failure in October.

Raleigh had three runs and three hits in 13 for the Mariners. Danny Jansen, who had three hits, drove in two runs for the Blue Jays, while Santiago Espinal and Alejandro Kirk each added two hits.

Blue Jays starting pitcher Kevin Gausman got off to a good start that ended after five and two-thirds of innings. Former Blue Jays left-hander Robbie Ray pitched just three innings in his first start for Toronto since signing with the Mariners in the offseason.

Gausman had five hits, four walks and seven walks.

The Mariners shut out the Blue Jays 4–0 in Game 1 of the series on Friday. It was the Blue Jays’ first playoff game at home since 2016.

“We’re not giving up. We haven’t given up all year,” said Mariners manager Scott Servais. Our team has some other decision. The boys only trust each other. ,

The Torontonians have won 92 games this season – two more than the Mariners – and finished first among American-drafted teams before the end of the campaign. This allowed the Blue Jays to rest some key players at the end of the season.

But it didn’t pay off against the Mariners, who weren’t intimidated by the Toronto crowd.

The Blue Jays have not won a playoff series since 2016, when they reached the All-American Championship Series for the second year in a row. The Blue Jays’ last World Series win was in 1993.

This season, the Mariners ended a 21-year drought without a playoff appearance.
