JAYS’ BIG BATS COMING ALIVE
Ezequiel Carrera and Jose Bautista hit home runs on Sunday as the Toronto Blue Jays continued to swing hot bats in a 6-3 victory over the Oakland Athletics.
The Toronto attack, which was sluggish to open the season, woke up against the Athletics with 20 runs, 32 hits and six home runs to win two of three games in the series.
Drew Hutchison, called up from the minors to give Toronto’s rotation an extra day’s rest, left to a standing ovation after giving up just two runs on four hits over 5 2/3 innings.
He struck out five and walked two. Roberto Osuna pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for his sixth save.
