In just a game of inches, the Toronto Blue Jays suffered a heartbreaking 2-1 loss at the hands of the Seattle Mariners on Friday. In a pitching duel between the teams’ aces, the game was ultimately determined by a close play at first during the third inning. An overturned out call by the umpire after a Mariners’ challenge led to the eventual winning runs to score in the subsequent at-bat. The Blue Jays (39-49) hope to rebound with a stronger effort against the division-leading Mariners (49-41) in the second game of the three-game set this weekend.

Probable pitchers

  • The Blue Jays will send Cuban sensation Yariel Rodríguez to the mound for his seventh start of the season. Rodríguez is coming off his best start of the season against the Houston Astros where he surrendered just one run on two hits with two walks and six strikeouts in 6.2 innings of work. For 2024, he sports an 0-3 record with a 4.63 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 23 strikeouts in 23.1 innings pitched. He will look for his first win of the season against the Mariners on Saturday.
  • The Mariners will counter with former first-round pick Emerson Hancock. The 25-year-old right-hander posted his longest outing of his MLB career the last time out against the Chicago White Sox. He went seven strong innings, giving up just two runs on six hits. On the season, Hancock is 3-3 with a 4.79 ERA and 1.28 WHIP. He will aim to secure the series win for Seattle on Saturday.
