TORONTO – The Toronto Blue Jays beat the best team in baseball Thursday evening, outplaying the Houston Astros in all facets of the game.
The Blue Jays out-hit Houston on a day every Toronto starter collected at least one knock. They fielded better than a sloppy Astros team that allowed two errors and a passed ball. And, led by Francisco Liriano, they out-pitched Lance McCullers Jr. & Co. on the way to a 7-4 win.
“I don’t care what the records are or what the numbers say,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said of the Blue Jays Thursday afternoon. “You look up and down this lineup, the names are real and they can produce.”
