Toronto Blue Jays beat Houston Astros 6-4

Toronto Blue Jays beat Houston Astros 6-4”

And if any doubt remains as to the relative competitiveness of these teams, just look ahead at Sunday's pitching matchup: Justin Verlander for the Astros, a bullpen day for the Jays. Clay Buchholz secured his first victory and Cavan Biggio went 2-for-3 with a double, a home run and three RBIs for Toronto. For a team that had lost eight of its previous 10 games, the resulting 6-4 win over the Houston Astros was a welcome change.

"I'm really looking forward to seeing Houston and who is better between the (NL West-leading) Dodgers and them". "I would much rather walk a few of those guys rather than give in and throw a fastball right down the middle or hang a curveball".

Valdez was recalled for Sunday's start against the Angels in the series finale, and he allowed one run and two hits in six innings of an 11-2 win.

Cavan Biggio led Toronto (55-82) with a two-run homer, Teoscar Hernandez added a two-run blast, and Bo Bichette had two hits, two runs, and a stolen base.

"I think the biggest thing I've been focusing on is being aggressive", said Biggio. We saw both, so I have a pretty good idea.

Framber Valdez (4-7) also pitched 5 2/3 innings, allowing six runs on nine hits but striking out five for the Astros (88-49).

"The amusing thing is every time we play the good teams, we've hit".

Meanwhile, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was back in the lineup the afternoon after his first career ejection. Brandon Drury followed that up with a single to shallow centre field, forcing a mound meeting. And yes, his family - with hall-of-fame father Craig - was in attendance, which created divided allegiances since the elder Biggio played in, and now works for, the Astros organization. "There's no way to win when you argue balls and strikes, but that's part of the game so that's never going to stop", said Toronto manager Charlie Montoyo. "But he wants me to do well too". What we're showing now is we're not a team that (faces Atlanta) and says "we're going to be good but they're probably going to beat us twice'".

Yuli Gurriel replied in the sixth inning, banging a double off the left-field wall.

Bichette grounded out his first two at bats, chatted with hitting coach Guillermo Martinez, then singled twice.

Two innings after going deep, Biggio doubled home Bo Bichette, who capped off an incredible month of August with yet another multi-hit game.

After loading the bases Law walked Bregman, cutting Toronto's lead to 6-4. All the hard-throwing right-hander did was strike out George Springer, Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman to end it for his 18th save in 19 opportunities this season.
