LA-TOR started of the week of games in exciting fashion with a 7-6 nail-bitter that saw TOR come out victorious in the end. Toronto tied the game in the 8th with a monster 2 out blast from Dave Sanchez that sent shock waves through the Ballpark of Toronto, Josh Jacobs sent his own shock waves into his glove by way of his fist. George Stringer takes the hill in the 9th and lets up a clutch HR by “Sticky” to give LA the lead with 2 outs. Heading into the 9th Jacobs gets the ball again to go out and finish it but TOR had other plans with their unlikely heros of Jaden Anderson and the pitcher himself George Stringer. Jaden doubled with 2 outs to get Jamie Johnson over to 3rd and Stringer came in with the single to win the ball game. Josh Jacobs with the rough outing and shaky in his last view outings may see a different role soon. While Stringer who’s name has been thrown about in trade rumors may be staying around much longer now.
