Clayton Kershaw isn’t the first pitcher to have Dave Roberts rob him of a perfect game
Toronto Blue Jays star Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit two home runs from Gerrit Cole, including one from a bloody finger injury. Vlad Jr is amazing.
The Blue Jays have been every pundit’s favorite MLB preseason pick since Toronto has been a popular World Series pick outside of the AL East until now. The Jays narrowly missed the playoffs last season but made key acquisitions this offseason in Kevin Gausman and Matt Chapman.
Before we look too far ahead, however, the Jays still have to get past the likes of the Yankees, Red Sox and Rays. Everything is going according to plan against New York ace Gerrit Cole on Wednesday night.
Blue Jays star and popular AL MVP pick Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit two home runs in the early innings ahead of Cole, including one after he was stabbed in the hand by Aaron Hicks.
Blue Jays: Vladimir Guerrero Jr. defies finger injury
Let’s go through the process.
Vlad Jr.’s first home run:
Cruel finger injury at Aaron Hicks Spike.
Cole’s second home run:
Cole’s tough start to the season continued against the Jays, including his first inning fights. The Yankees ace had an ERA above five in the first frame last season, despite his campaign close to Cy Young.
Hiccup’s sting was completely unintentional, but left Vladdy’s fingers bloody. That he kept playing and then hit a home run from one of baseball’s best pitchers is nothing short of remarkable.
