Gregorius is slashing.333/.464/.804 with five home runs, 16 RBIs and 14 runs scored, and Judge is hitting.339 with four homers, 11 RBIs and 15 runs.
The Blue Jays were scheduled to play a weekend series at Cleveland's Progressive Field, but the Saturday and Sunday games were rescheduled due to rain. "Defensive, offensive, on the basepaths", Granderson said. But it was awesome, thank you to all the fans who came out. He went 5 2/3 innings allowing six hits and three runs.
NY enjoyed a day off Wednesday after closing out a two-game series against Miami with a lopsided 9-1 loss to the Marlins as a heavy -338 home favourite, and has now fallen to defeat by eight or more runs twice in its past six outings, including a 14-1 loss in Boston as a +120 wager on April 10. They dominated Miami 12-1 on Monday, but their bats went silent in a 9-1 loss Tuesday.
Kansas City starter Danny Duffy allowed two hits in six scoreless innings, striking out eight in his longest outing of the season, before Toronto rallied off Kansas City's bullpen. Those numbers will come down, but Solarte has certainly earned playing time even when Josh Donaldson (shoulder) returns from the disabled list.
The lone team hotter than the Jays is the Red Sox after Rafael Devers launched his first career grand slam in a 9-0 laugher against the Angels.
Despite that impressive output, his place on the roster could be in jeopardy.
The Royals' offense, which had only provided four runs of support in his previous outings, tried to get Kennedy back into the game.
"It's not gonna be an easy decision, whatever we chose to do", Gibbons said.
After Justin Grimm walked the bases loaded to open the seventh, Maile drove a pitch from Brad Keller down the right-field line to score two runs.
"Right now I feel really great", he said.
Solarte did not do especially well against lefty pitching a year ago.
Maile, meanwhile, has also been a pleasant surprise.
Judge enjoyed hitting against righties at home in 2017. He entered the game batting.071 (3-for-42) on the season with one homer. It was Perez's final game at Double-A before advancing to Triple-A Omaha.
It's the first time a major USA league has agreed to show regular season games exclusively on Facebook, which has been building a portfolio of live sports. Paid attendance was 28,803.
Then there's Steve Pearce who has started to show some of the production that the Blue Jays needed last season hitting seven RBI and three home runs. Washington took a 4-2 lead into the eighth inning before Todd Frazier hit a two-run single and Juan Lagares delivered a tiebreaking, two-run double. "It's tough to sweep anybody".
As things are, it's been pretty fun to watch the Blue Jays so far this season, and if we're lucky, this team could get a lot better yet.
For the Thursday, game the Jays will be bringing out RHP Aaron Sanchez for the start.
CC Sabathia trots out to the mound for his third start of the season, provided he is activated from the 10-day DL as expected, for the Yankees. Donaldson has been out since April 13.
