Toronto Blue Jays win 6th straight: Let the good times roll!
The Toronto Blue Jays have won six straight ball games. The bats led the charge on Monday night as the Jays topped the Miami Marlins 11-3 at the Rogers Centre.
A hot start left the Toronto Blue Jays ahead 6-0 after the first inning as they chased Marlins starter Brad Hand after recording just two outs. That was more than enough for Marco Estrada, who turned in another quality outing as he continues to stabilize the fifth spot in the rotation.
Toronto’s big first inning continued when Danny Valencia missed a grand slam by inches, slamming a two-run double off the wall.Kevin Pillar
would then plate two runs of his own with a line-drive single to left field. Following a steal from Pillar, he was brought around by aMunenori Kawasaki
double. If something
happen in the first, it did.

Josh Donaldson continues to bring the rain. His home run in the second inning was a no-doubter and opened the lead to 7-0.
Not that the Blue Jays needed it, but Josh Donaldson’s bases-loaded single in the seventh pushed them into double digits for the 10th time this season.
Doubles were the weapon of choice tonight as the Blue Jays recorded four (Valencia 2, Kawasaki, Carrera).
MVJ: Kevin Pillar
After being the hot ticket in Toronto throughout April, Pillar saw his star fall recently as his bat fell asleep and his his average plummeted. Monday was another great showing from the centre-fielder, though, as he seems to be bouncing back. More important than Pillar’s two hits for two RBI’s was his two walks. Plate vision has long been an issue with Pillar, so a multi-walk game is extremely encouraging.
