Eventually they will have to pull it together, even without the 2015 AL MVP Donaldson to lead the way.

J.J. Hardy had three hits, including a pair of doubles.

Donaldson left Thursday's loss to Baltimore in the sixth inning after hobbling into second base on an RBI double, the Jays' lone run in their 2-1 loss. Although its quite unsafe to make sense of data from merely 10 games -whether they support or refute an argument - there is enough randomness in such a small sample size to allow for extreme results in either direction. His also homered in the eighth.

Toronto is not hitting home runs like they used to - and are not manufacturing runs, either.

Davis tacked on a run in the sixth inning with a solo shot to deep centre field. "I might need an extra shipment here soon".

"It's definitely tough to see him limp off of the field like that". But I've never been afraid of a challenge and I'm never going to back down and I'm going to keep working hard. Coming into Saturday, the Jays were 1-9 and had lost seven in a row.

"We had to do it, we needed to do it", Jays manager John Gibbons said of sending Donaldson to the DL.

Blue Jays: LHP J.A. Happ (0-2, 5.40) faces Bundy and the Orioles for the second time this season.

This loss was perhaps especially painful given how Happ was rolling prior to hearing a "pop" in his elbow in the fourth inning.

Sanchez is expected to visit a hand specialist in Kansas City to "get the blister issue figured out once and for all", as Arash Madani tweets.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu justified the incursion explaining that IDF planes targeted a Hezbollah weapons convoy. After Ya'alon's shocking comments, his office refused to elaborate on his statements despite repeated media requests.

With the game scoreless in the fifth, Happ threw a ball to Orioles hitter Adam Jones and was noticeably uncomfortable immediately afterwards. Following a brief conversation, Happ walked off the mound and into the clubhouse.

Donaldson is batting.310 with two home runs and four RBIs this season.

Both teams had six hits.

Home plate umpire Dale Scott is attended to on the field in the eighth inning after he was hit by a foul tip during a baseball game between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Baltimore Orioles in Toronto on Friday April 14, 2017.
