Toronto Blue Jays 7 Boston Red Sox 9
The Blue Jays fell to a late rally by the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night.
In the opening game of a three series the Blue Jays gave up six runs in the sixth to drop game one.
While the loss is unfortunate, what is even more troublesome is that Travis Shaw left the game with left knee soreness.
Shaw’s injury is just another in a long list of injuries that Toronto is carrying right now.
Without Shaw, Toronto is now down multiple pitchers, its short-stop, and their third-base man.
The seriousness of Shaw’s injury has not yet been defined, but before Tuesday’s game Guerrerro Jr. was practising at third-base.
This can only mean that Shaw could miss significant time.
Injured short-stop Bo Bichette is not set to resume baseball activities till this weekend;
While outfielder Randal Grichuk is nursing a bad back and is stuck in the DH spot.
The injuries for piling up for Toronto.
Blue Jays manger Charlie Montoyo will have to make some serious changes to the lineup during the Boston series.
Toronto has been rolling as of late and the injuries are definitely going to hurt the team as they as fight to hold on to a playoff spot.
While there are still lots of games left this season the AL East is very competitive, and with a shortened season every game will matter coming down the stretch.
Toronto and Boston will continue its series on Wednesday.
Game two is set to start at 6:37pm EST.
