Major League Baseball umpire Dale Scott gets second concussion from foul tip
A Mark Trumbo foul tip resulted in a concussion for home-plate umpire Dale Scott on Friday night, necessitating a trip to the hospital. “That one was not good”.
A spinal board was used to support Scott and he was transported off the field on a golf cart.
Asher kept the Blue Jays in check on three hits before exiting with one out in the bottom half of the frame.
Coghlan is best utilized as a platoon player, as his lifetime OPS splits (.766 vs. righties, .618 vs. lefties) would suggest.
The Orioles replaced Asher with left-handed reliever Donnie Hart, who recorded an out after Justin Smoak just missed a homer when Adam Jones caught his drive on the warning track.
Morales turned on the first pitch from Tyler Wilson (1-1) in the bottom of the ninth for a no-doubt shot over the wall in right-centre field.
Toronto is off to a franchise-worst 1-8 start.
The Baltimore Orioles will look to bounce back after having their 3-game winning streak snapped in walk-off fashion, by a final score of 2-1. “There just weren’t enough there at the end”. Britton struck out former teammate Steve Pearce with runners at first and second to earn his fifth save. Toronto began the campaign with a 1-5 road trip before dropping the first three contests of its nine-game homestand, including Thursday’s 2-1 setback in the series opener.The task of ending their six-game overall losing streak may be even more hard for the Blue Jays, who lost Josh Donaldson to a calf injury on Thursday.
It’s unclear how long Donaldson will be out, but there’s some chance it will be longer than a minimum 10-day stint on the DL.
“I’m just glad we were able to pull it off today”, Estrada said. Troy Tulowitzki followed up with a single up the middle to advance Bautista to second. “That’s what flipped that game right there”. He was batting.217 in seven games for the Bisons, with four RBIs and an OPS of.661.
Toronto Blue Jays Kendrys Morales gestures as he rounds the bases after hitting a walk off home run to defeat the Baltimore Orioles in a baseball game in Toronto on Saturday, April 15, 2017. The impact knocked Scott’s mask clean off. Scott appeared to withstand the blow initially, but ended up stumbling to the ground where members of both team’s training staffs rushed to his side.
Davis’ drive in the sixth was the 18th of his career at Rogers Centre.
