Toronto Blue Jays 4, Houston Astros 7
George Springer scored a three-run homer as the Houston Astros roared to a 7-4 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday evening
Meanwhile, Springer drove in a run with a double as the Astros racked up 13 hits in Toronto. One of those was Josh Reddick’s RBI single during a four-run fifth inning.
Also, Wade Miley laboured through 3 2/3 innings for Houston. He struck out five but issued five walks and gave up an unearned run on two hits. Collin McHugh earned the win.
Devenski, Harris and Rondon all gave up runs in their respective innings.
Cavan Biggio, Reese McGuire and Derek Fisher all had solo home runs for the Blue Jays.
The Blue Jays took a 1-0 lead on a rarely called catcher’s interference call. Miley had issued three walks to load the bases when McGuire fouled.
McGuire also cut into the lead that the Astros had built up at the end of the seventh. He sent the ball just over the right-field fence. Reddick made an impressive attempt at catching the ball, but he was unable to complete the catch.
