Freeman hits 3-run HR, Braves beat Blue Jays 10

Tyler Moore slugged a three-run, pinch-hit homer in the seventh inning, helping Miami snap a season-worst five-game losing streak with a win over Atlanta. Kemp finished 2-for-5 with four RBIs in the win.

"Pillar's been swinging the bat probably as hot as anybody in the league", Seattle manager Scott Servais said. The thing is these guys got here for a reason and at some point they used to play every day and they're all really good players.

Despite his latest start Colon's struggles outweigh his worth as a starter it is time to either attempt to trade the veteran starter or move him to the back end of the bullpen.

Despite a pair of doubles earlier in the game, Devon Travis was unable to execute when the Blue Jays needed him the most on Tuesday.

Everything, that is, except for Colon's stomach. "I have to work on locating that fastball".

"I definitely want to be back as soon as possible, but at the same time, I want to be back and stay back", Martin said. "But just not enough to put us over the top".

Kemp said it was easy to tell Colon had good stuff against the Jays.

A healthy left side of the infield - one worth $31.65 million this season - would be a welcome sight. Pillar is known for making contact, as many players can do, but not everyone is able to drive the ball with much consistency. "When he does that, it's tough to pick up that run".

Freeman put the game out of reach with a three-run home run off reliever Leonel Campos in the sixth to give the Braves a 9-3 lead.

Over the course of 39 appearances and 68 at-bats in the "Big Apple", Ceciliani produced a.206 batting average with one home run and four RBI alongside a.270 on-base percentage. Brandon Phillips, who is 11-for-28 against Estrada in his career, hit his second double of the game and Freddie Freeman followed that up with a two-run home run to centre.

Lucas Sims enjoyed an even better outing with Gwinnett, the 23-year-old improving to 4-0 for the season by striking out 10 and pitching 6 2/3 scoreless innings in a 6-2 win over Columbus.

Toronto manager John Gibbons elected to bring in closer Roberto Osuna in the ninth with two out and two on. "I didn't think he had his good curveball, which is kind of vital to him".

Yes, the Blue Jays remain in last place in the AL East but are just 7 games out of first, one game from fourth place and 3 games from third place.

Bartolo Colon will take the pitch when Atlanta begins an Interleague series with the Blue Jays on Monday in Toronto. I missed a lot of pitches and got hit.

"He was feeling a little puny, if that's possible".

Smoak gave the Blue Jays a 2-1 lead with his shot off James Pazos in the sixth.

After taking series from both Philadelphia and Texas... the Mariners lost to Toronto 7-2 on Thursday, was shut out by the Blue Jays 4-0 on Friday, lost again 7-2 on Saturday and then blew another game on Sunday.

Considering Tulowitzki has been out since April 22 with a hamstring injury and Donaldson hasn't been seen since hitting the DL with a calf injury April 14, it's been a while since that left side has been together, too. Ryan Tepera (3-1) pitched 2 1/3 flawless innings for the win as the Jays completed a four-game sweep. Tulowitzki's double play partner was Cavan Biggio, the son of former Astros star Craig Biggio.

After delighting the Mother's Day crowd of 42,030 with a blast to left off Edwin Diaz (1-2), his fifth, Pillar wriggled away from a group of celebrating teammates at home plate and scampered into Toronto's dugout.
