Jays' offense looking better after Morales' slam

The difference in a 5-2 win was that Kendrys Morales pummelled a 95.1 miles per hour fastball 444 feet to left-centre field for a grand slam during the pivotal third, while Brad Miller beat a 93.5 miles per hour two-seamer into the ground in the fourth leading to an inning-ending double play.

"It was just a matter of time before the guys started heating up", Toronto manager John Gibbons said. Stroman was 1-1 with a 2.35 ERA in three starts for the United States, including six dominant innings during an 8-0 win over Puerto Rico in the championship game.

This wasn't quite World Baseball Classic MVP Marcus Stroman, but the decent version of Stroman was pretty good for the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday night.

"(The slam) feels really satisfying, knowing we had two defeats already", Morales said.

Fed minutes reveal debate over inflation and Trump
The central bankers now expected President Donald Trump's plans for expansionary fiscal policy would likely not begin until 2018. The minutes showed that Fed officials received a staff briefing on managing its $4.5 trillion bond portfolio.

The Blue Jays (1-2) scored more runs on that one swing than they did in their first two games combined, so the weight was lifted. "Our pitching basically shut them down, but they got a couple of big home runs - the walk off and then the two-runner by Jones and then Chris Davis".

Darwin Barney had a one-out single in the third, and Josh Donaldson and Jose Bautista both drew two-out walks before Morales sent an 0-1 pitch into left-center field seats for a 4-0 lead.

"Upset about the walks, but felt good, felt I was competing", Snell said.

Liriano is looking for a bounce back year after struggling with the Blue Jays and Pirates last season, in which he suffered from the homerun boon as he allowed a new career high of 26. Last season with the Rays, he hit.227 with three homers and 15 RBIs in 126 plate appearances.

Toronto went up 5-0 on Barney's bunt that first baseman Logan Morrison was charged with an error for mishandling in the seventh. Souza, who has hit well this season, batted leadoff against Sabathia and had two infield hits in the Rays' 5-0 loss. The Rays were 2-for-10 with those three double plays when he induced a ground ball.

Jason Grilli came into the game in the bottom of the ninth with runners at second and third and one out and served up a wild pitch that carded the second Tampa run. He doesn't have much to show for it, but I think he's locked in.

Tampa Bay's Steven Souza Jr. doubled to lead off the fifth and advanced on a groundout, but Stroman threw home on a comebacker by Tim Beckham, and catcher Martin tagged out Souza.
