KANSAS CITY — With the schedule soft spot of the last three weeks behind them, and a disappointing 8-10 record over that stretch now on the register, the true test of this Toronto Blue Jays season finally begins in earnest on Tuesday.
Sunday’s 8-2 thumping of the Royals capped off a 3-4 road trip through Texas and Kansas City. That brings the team’s June record to 10-12, a discouraging follow-up to the Blue Jays’ torrid 18-10 May. Toronto’s run differential, plus-29 in May, has swung right around and is minus-30 this month, and now sits at minus-22 on the season.
