Three days after he thought his season was over
ST. PETERSBURG http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-ryan-goins-jersey , Fla. (AP) — Jon Berti achieved a milestone in the major leagues.Berti got his first two RBIs and Randal Grichuk had a pinch-hit, three-run triple to lead the Toronto Blue Jays to a 7-6 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday night.The 28-year-old Berti was playing in his second big-league game after eight years in the minors. After finishing his minor league season, the second baseman was at home on Tuesday when he got the call-up. He made his major league debut at home on Wednesday.“It’s been a wild few days but some good memories so far,” he said. “I was sitting in a parking lot in my car and got the phone call, said I might be coming up the next day. I got home as soon as I could and told my parents.”His parents came down from Michigan to see him drive in his first two runs with a double in the sixth inning to tie the score 4-4.“(The Blue Jays) have embraced me, which has eased the anxiety a little bit, just allowing me to play my game,” said Berti Melky Cabrera Jersey , who has played in 789 minor league games. “Anytime you can drive in a few runners to help this team win, it feels good.”Grichuk’s first triple of the season came in the seventh off Jose Alvarado (1-6) in Toronto’s second straight three-run inning and put the Blue Jays back ahead 7-5.Adam Moore’s first home run since 2012 drove in the final run for Tampa Bay in the eighth.Tim Mayza (2-0) got the win after facing only one batter in the sixth, and Ken Giles pitched the ninth for his 26th save, converting his 31st straight successful save opportunity.Mallex Smith tripled and Joey Wendle doubled for the Rays in a three-run first inning against Toronto starter Thomas Pannone. Tommy Pham also walked in the inning, extending his streak of games in which he has reached base to 30.Smith had three hits and scored twice for the Rays, who lost by one run for the 31st time.“We just didn’t really that perform well tonight,” Rays manager Kevin Cash said. “It kind of carries in from yesterday (a 12-1 loss to the Yankees) into today. We couldn’t keep them of base.”Rays starter Tyler Glasnow gave up three runs and seven hits with three walks and nine strikeouts in 5 1/3 innings.Teoscar Hernandez led off the second inning with his 21st home run, and Rowdy Tellez led off the sixth with his fourth, starting a three-run inning that helped the Blue Jays tie it 4-all.Pannone pitched 5 1/3 innings Justin Verlander Jersey , giving up five runs and seven hits with three walks.HAPPY TO BE HEREJohn Gibbons has called Tropicana Field a “house of horrors” but said he is happy that his final series as Blue Jays manager is being played at the domed stadium. “There’s no chance of a rainout or doubleheaders,” Gibbons said. “Perfect temperature.”Toronto improved to 74-109 all-time on the Rays’ home field.SEE YOU NEXT YEARCash said Thursday’s beanball incident that got New York pitcher C.C. Sabathia ejected is best forgotten. “I’m glad nobody got hurt,” Cash said. “It’s probably a good time for us to send off the Yankees and not play ’em for a while.”TRAINER’S ROOMBlue Jays: INF prospect Bo Bichette will not play in the Arizona Fall League due to minor knee and elbow soreness. The 20-year old hit .286 with 11 homers and 74 RBIs at Double-A New Hampshire.Rays: DH Ji-Man Choi (left ear laceration) and 3B Matt Duffy (hamstring) are not likely to play in the season-ending series for precautionary reasons.Duffy played in 131 games after missing the entire 2017 season recovering from Achilles surgery.UP NEXTLHP Blake Snell (21-5) will be attempting to win his 10th straight start for the Rays on Saturday night against LHP Ryan Borucki (4-5). Snell has not lost since July 12, and has a 1.03 earned run average over his nine straight wins. Patrick Smith/Getty ImagesBaltimore Orioles shortstop Manny Machado could be traded before he gets a chance to return to his team after the All-Star break, which could make Tuesday's All-Star Game the last time he represents the organization.The 26-year-old had nothing but kind words to say about the only major league team he has known during a midgame interview."It was a tremendous honor to wear this uniform," Machado told Ken Rosenthal of Fox (via Luke Jones of WNST.net). "They gave me the opportunity to come upplay in the big leagues. ... If this is the last time, hopefully I treated them welldid everything I can for the organization."Rosenthal reported Tuesday that a deal sending Machado to the Los Angeles Dodgers is "happening."The Orioles drafted the four-time All-Star in 2010, and he quickly moved through the organization, debuting in the majors by 2012 while helping the team reach the playoffs that year.He has only gotten better over the next few years Houston Astros Jersey , finishing in the top 10 of MVP voting in three different seasons. He also earned two Gold Gloves during this stretch.Now in the final year of team control before hitting free agency, Machado is putting up the best numbers of his career. In 96 games, the young player has 24 home runs, 65 RBI and a .315 batting average. His .963 OPS would also be a personal best.However, Baltimore's struggles (28-69) made him an ideal trade candidate heading into the deadline.While he has been a perfect ambassador for the Orioles throughout his career, the purposed trade could allow Machado to join a contender and potentially get to the World Series for the first time in his career.
