  • Blue Jays\ Chris Coghlan Channels His Inner Willie Mays Hayes By Flying Over Yadier Molina to Score

Coghlan's irrational, exuberant and unprecedented flight over Yadier Molina stole the buzz of a buzzworthy game: the Toronto Blue Jays' much-needed 6-5 win over the St. Louis Cardinals in 11 innings Tuesday.

Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Justin Smoak is not in the lineup Tuesday versus the St. Louis Cardinals.

With the score 2-2 in the seventh inning, Coghlan sped around the bases on a triple hit by Pillar in the right-field corner, which hit high off the fence over Stephen Piscotty and bounced back toward the infield. "(As a catcher) it's the last thing I'd be thinking about.

Chavez coming back three days as a starter after appearing as a reliever against the same team is an oddity, but Angels manager Mike Scioscia said his right-hander handled it well. I didn't really see it. Said Gibbons: "I thought it was kind of a moving zone". Chris Coghlan said he never once considered that what he was doing was unsafe, which one could argue makes him an irrational man. Jose Bautista's RBI single off former Blue Jay Brett Cecil put Toronto ahead 5-4 in the ninth.

But rather than grip the ball a little tighter, he got bat to ball and on base to start what was the winning rally in the wild 8-7 win.

Luckily, we didn't have to worry about anybody being hoisted by their own petard, as Norris got his second career save, punctuated by a game-ending, gorgeous double play from the Simmons-Espinosa connection. "I feel pretty good about 'em". Way to go, Coghlan; you are a masterful athlete, and I hope your next flip includes fireworks and a soundtrack.

The emphasis on the final word - always - certainly seemed to be directed at Sportsnet studio analyst Gregg Zaun who took a solid run at Stroman on Sunday after the picture demonstrably celebrated his big win over the Angels.

Liberal Democrats will not enter into a coalition government
And in this country, maybe it appears you have to pretend you haven't got one to be taken seriously. I think that's pretty offensive and will rightly anger a lot of people.

Particularly so because the Blue Jays have routinely failed to record shutdown innings in the past few games.

"I vote for Stroman to play third tomorrow", Donaldson tweeted after the game.

Toronto has lost six of it's last 10 games, and as a team, has struck out more than 11 times per game in its last five games. "We simulated two innings in the bullpen".

Kansas City is 0-6 on a seven-game trip, its longest skid since losing eight consecutive games last June. "This was a big win for us".

Let Devon Travis, who broke out of a cold slump with a two-run homer in the eighth to start the rally explain. "We're going to keep fighting and tides will turn".

St. Louis tied it back up in the bottom of the fourth.
