Blue Jays Game Recap: Late Loss to Yankees
The Blue Jays opened the 2015 season with a convincing 6-1 win over the New York Yankees on Monday. With a full day off to reflect, they were back in action on Wednesday. While Monday’s contest was featured in a sunny afternoon game, this game was set in a colder environment. This type of weather has the potential to interfere with the knuckle baller, R.A. Dickey. And, early on it did. But, Dickey was able to settle down and put together a good start. That was about all that was good about this game.
Game Notes:Devon Travis
is impressing everyone. He started the scoring with an RBI ground ball in the 3rd inning. He later singled in the 5th. He’s putting together good at bats and is not looking out of place at all. It’s the 2nd game of the year, but if this is what fans can expect, it’ll be a lot of fun to watch him this year.

Dickey did not give up a run until the 6th inning. At the outset of the game, it looked to be slow going for Dickey. He struggled to find the feel and strike zone with his floater. But, he settled down and ended up throwing a nice start together. His knuckleball even got up to 80 mph.
