A few news and notes surrounding the Toronto Blue Jays walk-off win last night versus the New York Yankees.

Bo Calls His Shot

The Toronto Blue Jays opened up their three-game set with the Yankees in dramatic fashion last night as Bo Bichette hit a solo shot to walk it off in the 12th inning.

Bichette led off the 12th inning versus reliever Tyler Lyons, Bo quipped in the dugout prior to the at-bat that if the Yankees southpaw threw him a slider, he was going to take him deep. The rookie got what he wished for on the third pitch of the at-bat and deposited it over the left-field wall.

Bichette becomes the youngest player in Blue Jays history to hit a walk-off home run at 21 years and 192 days old.

Tellez Takes A Seat

Rowdy Tellez was pulled from last night’s contest in the sixth inning by skipper Charlie Montoyo after the rookie failed to hustle down the line. Tellez was replaced by Justin Smoak as the rookie took a seat.

Probably not the best timing as it looked like Tellez was going to get a long look at first base from here on out. Tellez has yet to show he can consistently hit for contact but there is no doubting the power as the first baseman has clubbed 19 homers this season.

A good lesson for the rookie that he can hopefully rectify and remove from his game moving forward.

Scary Moment For Mayza

Tim Mayza exited last night’s game in obvious discomfort following an errant pitch. It appeared to be an elbow injury and the prognosis does not appear promising. Mayza knew immediately and left the field holding his arm.

Mayza will receive an MRI to determine the extent of the elbow injury but don’t expect to see him for the remainder of the season.
