Sanchez sets Blue Jays record after losing 10th straight start

Sanchez sets Blue Jays record after losing 10th straight start Aaron Sanchez's season from hell marches on. The 27-year-old right-hander became the first Toronto Blue Jays pitcher to lose 10 straight starts after Wednesday night's 5-4 loss to the Boston Red Sox. Prior to Wednesday, Sanchez was tied with Juan Berenguer and Jeff Byrd as one of three Blue Jays pitchers to lose nine consecutive games. If not for a pair of no-decision outings in late May, Sanchez may have set the mark even sooner. He's now lost 13 consecutive decisions since earning his last win on April 27. Sanchez allowed four earned runs on eight hits across five innings against the Red Sox on Wednesday. He walked one batter and struck out four. He's now 3-14 with a 6.

Castellanos drove in Grayson Greiner, and the Tigers salvaged a split of the four -game series to open the season. He singled in the first, sixth, seventh and 11th, and doubled in the ninth. Trailing 3 -0 in the eighth, the Blue Jays tied it against Joe Jimenez when pinch-hitter Rowdy Tellez hit a three-run

DETROIT (AP) Nicholas Castellanos gave the Detroit Tigers a chance to enjoy the type of celebration that's been awfully rare of late at Comerica Park.

Castellanos led off the bottom of the 10th inning with a home run, and Detroit snapped its six-game losing streak with a 4-3 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday. The Tigers won for only the eighth time in their last 41 games. It was just their 13th victory at home on the season, the fewest in the majors.

Gregor Chisholm: Blue Jays’ loss to Red Sox marks record 10th in a row for Sanchez

Gregor Chisholm: Blue Jays’ loss to Red Sox marks record 10th in a row for Sanchez Three years ago, Aaron Sanchez was racking up the kind of accolades that were typically associated with Roy Halladay. He’s still setting records in 2019, they just happen to be the ones nobody wants. Sanchez became the first Blue Jays pitcher to lose 10 consecutive starts after a 5-4 loss to the Red Sox on Wednesday night. The dubious mark broke a tie with Juan Berenguer (1981) and Jeff Byrd (1977) who each lost nine straight. Sanchez also became the first major-league pitcher to lose 10 straight starts since Kevin Slowey from 2011-13. The 27-year-old Sanchez dropped to 0-13 with a 7.99 ERA over his last 15 starts.

''I love these guys. This team, we've been through a lot,'' Castellanos said. ''The personalities in this team want to do good so bad, and they know that this is their opportunity, so the fact that everybody's jumping around me, dumping stuff on me and we're all smiling after a big win like that ... that's a good moment.''

The victory didn't come easily. Closer Shane Greene allowed a tying, two-run homer by Lourdes Gurriel Jr. in the ninth, but Castellanos connected on the first pitch thrown by Tim Mayza (0-1) for his 11th homer of the season. It could be his last big moment for Detroit. Castellanos is a candidate to be dealt as the trade deadline approaches.

Stroman delivers for Jays and scouts in blowout victory in Motown

Stroman delivers for Jays and scouts in blowout victory in Motown DETROIT—Marcus Stroman lived up to his nickname in what could be his last outing as a Blue Jay. The Stro Show pitched seven clean innings against the Detroit Tigers in a 12-1 win at Comerica Park on Friday night. Detroit entered the series hitting a combined .234, but the heat was on Stroman, whose start reportedly drew scouts from eight prospective trade suitors — including the Atlanta Braves, Minnesota Twins, New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox. Stroman’s bread-and-butter slider and lively two-seam fastball silenced Tigers batters on a hot night in Motown.

Just like the Blue Jays , the Tigers are able to use this season to evaluate talent at the major-league level. Rookie Harold Castro has played everywhere except pitcher and catcher. He had his first career four -hit game on Sunday, and entering play Thursday, was hitting .365 over his previous 21 games.

Castellanos said he isn't preoccupied with trade speculation.

''I'm at the point where I really don't care what happens,'' Castellanos said. ''Why care? I can't control it. Why care if one day my hair is going to turn gray if I can't control it? I don't know if that analogy makes any sense, but it popped into my head.''

Nick Ramirez (5-3) pitched a scoreless top of the 10th for Detroit.

JaCoby Jones also homered for the Tigers, and Tyler Alexander pitched seven impressive innings. Alexander held Toronto to a run and three hits, but his first career win slipped away in the ninth. Greene, who entered with a 1.03 ERA, allowed a drive to left-center by Gurriel that tied the game at 3.

'Superstitious' Jansen shaves in dugout, hits 2-run single

'Superstitious' Jansen shaves in dugout, hits 2-run single DETROIT — Danny Jansen was hitless in his first three at-bats when he tried to change his luck — by shaving his moustache. "Got a hit right after," the Toronto catcher said. "Maybe I'm a little superstitious." Jansen's two-run single in the sixth inning was just a small part of an offensive onslaught by the Blue Jays, who batted around in the both the fourth and the sixth on their way to a 12-1 rout of the Detroit Tigers on Friday night. Marcus Stroman breezed through seven scoreless innings for Toronto, and Teoscar Hernandez homered. Stroman (6-10) allowed six hits.

''He has been so good lately,'' Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said. ''Every time we need a big hit, he seems to come up with one.''

Toronto scored in the first on an RBI double by Gurriel, but Detroit tied it in the second when a run came home on Bobby Wilson's double-play grounder. The Blue Jays tried to turn a 5-4-3 triple play when Wilson hit a grounder to third with the bases loaded, but the throw to first was late.

STARTERS

The Tigers recalled the 25-year-old Alexander from Triple-A Toledo before the game. He did not allow a baserunner after the third inning and faced just three batters over the minimum through seven.

Drury’s homer gave the Blue Jays the lead, and the Tigers didn’t score again off the Toronto bullpen. Ken Giles struck out three in the ninth for his 14th save in 15 Tigers : Before the game, Detroit put RHP Spencer Turnbull on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to Thursday, with an upper back strain.

Alexander and Toronto's Jacob Waguespack were both making their second major league starts. Waguespack allowed three runs and nine hits in 5 1/3 innings. He struck out seven with no walks.

''I thought today was a tremendous improvement from my first start,'' Waguespack said. ''I was really fighting my command that time, and it was a lot better today.''

Alexander had good numbers, although there were some deep flyballs - including one that Jones caught in center while slamming into the wall.

''If the fences were 10 feet in, I think we'd be having a different conversation,'' Alexander said.

Castellanos has little sympathy for opposing players who have to deal with Comerica's dimensions in center.

''This park's a joke. It's to the point where, how are we going to be compared to the rest of the people in the league for power numbers ... and we got a yard out here that's 420 feet straight across in center field?'' Castellanos said. ''We get on second base or third base, and they're looking, like, `Man, how do you guys do this?' We play 81 games here. I don't want to hear about your two that you hit that are questionable.''

TRAINER'S ROOM

Blue Jays: LHP Ryan Borucki (left elbow inflammation) is set to make his season debut as Monday's starter. He made four rehab starts at three different levels, allowing six earned runs in 18 innings.

UP NEXT

Blue Jays: Borucki takes the mound when Toronto hosts Cleveland on Monday night. Mike Clevinger (3-2) starts for the Indians.

Tigers: Detroit has Monday off before two home games against Philadelphia. Matthew Boyd (6-8) takes the mound for the Tigers on Tuesday night against Aaron Nola (8-2).
