Blue Jays Blow Out Reds

So often in their early season struggles, the Toronto Blue Jays had trouble producing runs.

"There's not a ton of options until two things (happen)", Price said.

It is the first time the Reds have allowed 23 hits in a game since giving up 25 on May 1, 1985, against the Atlanta Braves at Riverfront Stadium.

The final scoreline could have been much worse for the Reds (24-26).

Tulowitzki played in just five rehab games before returning to the Blue Jays' lineup, but his timing appeared to be returning on a day he hit a grand slam and a single.

Smoak had four RBIs while Martin went 3-for-4 with three RBIs and a walk.

"We're getting closer", Gibbons said. "Those games are very rare at the big-league level. It was one of those nights where everybody did something good". He also had an RBI single in the first inning. The rookie allowed five runs on six hits and left after two singles to lead off the bottom of the sixth inning. The former All-Star went 0-8 in his next 16 starts before his breakthrough. He has not lost since a home defeat to Boston on April 18. 'You're starting to see how talented and capable we are. "I'm excited for this next stretch here, and we're not anxious by any means". In his 23.1 innings and 0-2 record this year, Bonilla has a 6.17 ERA with 16 Ks and 11 BBs to his name.

"It was obvious that Bo didn't have his really good stuff or command", Price said.

Smoak now leads all Major League Baseball switch-hitters with 12 home runs and has a season batting line of.288/.354/.564. "I felt they hit everything". Jays catcher Martin got the Toronto offence started with a two-run homer in the second inning, bringing home Smoak.

Pagan threw the beer can onto the field during a game between the Toronto Blue Jays and Baltimore Orioles on October 4, 2016. Tulowitzki came to the plate with the bases loaded again but grounded into a forceout to end the inning. "We've got (Donaldson and Tulowitzki) back, and that's big". "On the grand slam, I got a good pitch to hit and has a good swing and broke the game open".

Justin Smoak hit a three-run homer and Russell Martin added a two-run shot for the Blue Jays, who have 43 home runs in May. Third baseman Eugenio Suarez was called for obstruction. "Hopefully, we can catch some momentum offensively and take it over into tomorrow and keep it going".

Left-hander J.A. Happ will start the Toronto Blue Jays' game against the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday, manager John Gibbons said Monday.

The Blue Jays confirmed J.A. Happ as today's stater yesterday, ending more than a month on the disabled list.

Before the game, Red slugger Joey Votto received the 2016 Tip O'Neill Award from the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame.
