There’s on a roll and there’s whatever it is the Toronto Blue Jays are on right now.
The Jays came into Thursdays game winners of nine straight and 15 of their last 20. To say things have been going well of late for Toronto would be a bit of an understatement.
Edwin Encarnacion hit two more home runs on Thursday, giving him 16 in May. Mark Buehrle has won five of the six starts he’s made this month with a 2.48 ERA in the process.
When the baseball gods are smiling on you, even would-be base hits by the opposition turn into outs. On Thursday, Jose Bautista fielded a ball that made it through the infield off the bat of Billy Butler and threw him out at first base from right field.
Heck of a throw by Jose Bautista or serious lack of speed by Billy Butler?
